Injuries almost have turned Malcolm Lee into an NBA stranger.
Lee logged barely more games in two years with the Minnesota Timberwolves (35) than he did as a UCLA junior (33). He has undergone two surgeries on each knee and a hip surgery and was acquired in June by the Suns mostly because they had to take on his contract to move up one draft spot for Archie Goodwin.
Lee 23 is trying to make sure you have not seen the last of him. Or that you are about to see the first of him.
He has been in Phoenix for the past month working with Suns athletic trainers with the belief that he will be ready to participate when the team heads to Flagstaff for training camp on Sept. 30. He has a guaranteed $884000 contract but the Suns also will have 15 other guaranteed contracts with a maximum of 15 regular-season roster spots.
The Suns believe in Lee’s talent but it is a matter of the 6-foot-5 guard’s health and whether he can recapture his athleticism and show his defensive aptitude.
