Golden State Warriors forward David Lee is expected to return to action in tomorrow's game against the Sacramento Kings at Oracle Arena according to multiple reports.

With Andrew Bogut now out indefinitely, Lee will at the very least add some depth to the frontcourt and hopefully use his passing ability in that high post facilitator role. But the still looming question is how Lee will fit in the rotation long-term: even if Draymond Green has the starting forward role locked up, how many minutes will he play and what lineup combinations will he be used with most often? We cannot answer those questions until he can play in more than short stints, so for now we can just enjoy the fact that adding a player like Lee to this rotation can only help an already-successful team regardless of how exactly Kerr uses him.
