Damion Lee will be available to play in the Golden State Warriors’ matchup vs the Charlotte Hornets Wednesday. The “Dubs” shooting guard missed the team’s latest win vs. Oklahoma due to a shoulder injury.

Lee, 29, fully practiced Monday and completed a scrimmage with no issues. On the season, Lee is averaging 14.2 points, 3.0 rebounds, and 1.0 assists per game while shooting 46.2 percent from the field.

The 29-year-old veteran is providing the Warriors’ with solid minutes, coming off the bench. Golden State has started the season 5-1 with Lee having a big role in that.

Of the 5 games Lee has played, Kerr has occasionally opted for him to be part of the closing lineup. Without Lee on Saturday, Golden State rode big performances from Curry and Draymond Green to a 103-82 rout of the Thunder.
