OAKLAND -- Warriors forward David Lee won't play Saturday at Phoenix and will miss a second consecutive game because of injury, coach Mark Jackson said.
Lee will have missed three of four games after attempting to play through a shoulder sprain and hip strain. Asked where he was with the shoulder on 95.7 The Game before missing Thursday's game, Lee said, "With my shoulder, hip and back?"
Other big men not practicing Friday were centers Andrew Bogut (left shoulder inflammation) and Jermaine O'Neal (wrist), with Bogut listed as questionable for the Phoenix game.
O'Neal was sidelined for precautionary reasons after playing in his second game since returning from wrist surgery, according to Jackson, who added he imagined the 18-year veteran was fine. O'Neal collected four points and five rebounds in 26 minutes while starting in place of Bogut in Thursday's win against Chicago.
"We need him," Jackson said of O'Neal.
The Warriors also announced guard Nemanja Nedovic, who has been out because of a left hamstring strain, also has right foot inflammation and will be in a boot for a week.
