Posted Apr 25 2012 8:29PM

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Another starter for the Golden State Warriors is heading to the operating table.

The team said David Lee will have surgery Thursday to repair a torn abdominal muscle. The procedure will be performed by Dr. William Meyers in Philadelphia. Lee's recovery time to resume basketball activities will be determined following surgery.

He has missed seven straight games after an MRI exam on April 13 revealed a strained groin and stress reaction. The former New York Knicks forward, in his second season with the Warriors, averaged 20.1 points and 9.6 rebounds this year.

Point guard Stephen Curry and center Andrew Bogut are both having arthroscopic surgery on their injured ankles in Los Angeles this week. The Warriors host San Antonio in the season finale Thursday night.
