With Lee being passed over for the reserves, he will not join his teammates Stephen Curry (All-Star starter) and Harrison Barnes (Rising Stars Challenge) for All-Star weekend. While he averaged close to the numbers that made him an All-Star a season ago, LaMarcus Aldridge, Dwight Howard, and Dirk Nowitzki make up the frontcourt players for the Western Conference reserves.
In 46 games, Lee is averaging 19.0 points and 9.8 rebounds while shooting 52 percent from the field. The Warriors are currently 27-18 and hold the sixth seed in the Western Conference.
