Golden State Warriors All-Star forward David Lee has undergone surgery to repair a torn right hip flexor. The Warriors said the procedure was performed Thursday at the Vincera Institute in Philadelphia by Dr. William Meyers. Lee will start rehabilitation in the next 10 to 14 days. No further timetable on his recovery was announced. Lee hurt his hip in the playoff opener at Denver. The team originally called it a season-ending injury, but Lee played sparingly off the bench in the Game 6 clincher. After sitting out the first two games in the second round against San Antonio, Lee's minutes increased over the final four contests. Lee averaged 18.5 points, 11.2 rebounds and 3.5 assists in the regular season, becoming Golden State's first All-Star since Latrell Sprewell in 1997.
