News: Warriors center David Lee is expected to return to the lineup Monday against the Kings, the Contra Costa Times reports. On Saturday, Lee went through his first full practice since reinjuring his hamstring in early November.

"He looked good, he was moving really well, his hamstring's fine," coach Steve Kerr said. "He told me everything else is sore now, which is a good sign. He's getting back into basketball shape and running a lot of sprints. But this was the first time he's scrimmaged full court, which was a good step."

"It's never easy to come back off an injury to a team that's winning," Kerr added. "It's tricky. It's a human nature thing, where you don't want to screw up what's going on, but at the same time, you want to make an impact. David's been an All-Star, a 20-and-10 guy his whole career, so it's tricky. I respect that. We're going to talk about that as a team (Sunday), not just in terms of David's situation but the impact it's going to have on everybody."

Lee played just seven minutes in his only appearance this season. He averaged 18.2 points and 9.3 rebounds in 69 games for the Warriors last season.
