OAKLAND — Warriors forward David Lee will miss Friday night's game against Memphis with a strained right hamstring, although coach Mark Jackson said he expects Andre Iguodala to return to the lineup.

Lee, the team's second-leading scorer and rebounder, will miss the game six days after he suffered the injury in the fourth quarter against San Antonio.

"He's recovering, resting and getting closer, but still has not done anything live in practice, so there's no way he'll play tonight," Jackson said before Friday's game.

In place of Lee, Marreese Speights will start for the first time this season.

Iguodala is expected to return after missing three games with right knee tendinitis, but Jackson said he remained concerned and that he didn't expect the player to be 100 percent for the rest of the season.

"It's important to not push him in practice and make sure he gets the proper treatment, the proper rest and to be in constant contact with him on off days, in game situations, making sure he's feeling good and we don't push it too far," Jackson said.

A five-day break in the Warriors schedule gave Iguodala 11 days off since the last time he played.
