Warrriors without Lee, Jefferson in L.A.

The Warriors will not have center David Lee or small forward Richard Jefferson for Saturday's game with the Clippers, the team announced Friday.

Lee has been suffering from pain in his groin for several weeks and underwent an MRI Friday that revealed a strain and a stress reaction. Team doctors advised Lee that he should not play until the condition has fully healed.

Lee has played in 57 games this season and is averaging 20.1 points and 9.6 rebounds per game. He scored 20 points in a loss to the Mavs on Thursday.

Jefferson, obtained in a mid-March deal with the Spurs, is suffering from swelling in his right knee. He was scheduled to undergo an MRI in the Bay Area late Friday afternoon. Results of the MRI will be released when available. He's averaged 9.7 points and 3.5 rebounds per game in 17 contests for Golden State.

Jefferson will remain in the Bay Area to receive treatment and miss tomorrows game in Los Angeles against the Clippers. Lee is expected to travel with the team to L.A.

With 6:55 remaining in the second quarter on Monday night, Draymond Green was assessed a Flagrant-1 for his foul against LeBron James.

"He wanted to send a message," Cavs head coach Tyronn Lue said on Wednesday.

Lue also told ESPN's Dave McMenamin that he didn't think Draymond's foul was a dirty play.

Immediately after the game, Steve Kerr acknowledged that he hadn't seen a replay yet but that in real time, "It just looked like a normal foul where a guy is in transition -- you want to foul him and take away the fastbreak and obviously he went down hard and sold it pretty well."

Klay Thompson said that the foul "probably warranted a Flagrant-1."

Klay Thompson is questionable for tonight's game against the Thunder, the Warriors announced.

His status is up in the air because of a family matter.

He led the Warriors in scoring on Monday against the Cavs with 26 points.
