CHICAGO -- Warriors forward David Lee will be available off the bench for Wednesday's game at Chicago after missing two games while being hospitalized because of the stomach flu.
Jermaine O'Neal will make his fifth consecutive start coming off the All-Star break in place of Lee, who said his condition was bad enough to where he spent about 36 hours receiving fluids and medicine.
"It was almost a scary couple of days," Lee said. "Really, I hadn't felt that bad at any point in my life. It was very, very bad.
"After being in the hospital about a couple days ago, any minutes that I get I'll be happy with."
Lee last played in Thursday's win at home against Houston and has not practiced since. He did participate in a shootaround after joining the team in Chicago.
Lee, who first began feeling symptoms last Wednesday, watched the team's first game of this six-game trip at Detroit from the hospital.
Chicago got an addition to its lineup in guard Jimmy Butler, who will return after missing two games because of a rib contusion.
