David Lee has been dealing with back issues and has missed two of the last three games.

Diamond Leung of Bay Area News Group reports that Lee will not suit up for Game 1 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals.

With Lee out, Leung also reports that both James Michael McAdoo and Brandon Rush will be activated.

Lee was relegated to a bench role this year with the emergence of Draymond Green. While Lee also received CD-DNP's through the course of the season, he averaged a solid 7.9 points and 5.2 rebounds in 18.4 minutes of action with a PER of 17.90 according to ESPN.
