David Lee Medical Update
Warriors forward released from Stanford Hospital this afternoon
Warriors forward David Lee, who underwent a second procedure to help cleanse a left elbow infection on Monday night, was released from Stanford Hospital early this afternoon.
According to Dr. Bill Maloney (Stanford), Dr. Tim McAdams (Stanford) and Dr. Frank Chen (Fremont Surgery Center), the 6’9” forward has made very good progress, including a complete omission of redness and the near-complete removal of swelling around the elbow.
Lee’s left arm has been splinted to restrict movement and he will be provided home IVs and antibiotics under the care of Dr. Chen. Dr. Chen will monitor his progress daily and David will be re-examined again next Tuesday.
