Lee plans to have surgery to repair a torn right hip flexor in the coming weeks, the Associated Press reports. He is expected to be ready for training camp.
Aside from the injury, Lee had a splendid season, averaging 18.5 points and 11.2 rebounds per game in 79 games. He's developed into a nice low-post scorer with a mid-range game and an ability to draw fouls. He's often knocked for playing sub-standard defense, but there's no doubting his impact offensively.
Wade was a full participant during Sunday's practice, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.
Sunday's practice was of the light variety, but nonetheless, Wade said he is good to go. He played 37 minutes in Wednesday's Game 5, so the knee appears to be holding up. Continue to start him as you normally would.

: (Knee) Playing Wednesday
Wade (knee) said that he will play in Wednesday's Game 5 against Chicago, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.
Wade, who was officially listed as a game-time decision following his participation in morning shootaround, will take part in pregame warmups, implying that he's all systems go. Barring a setback, expect him to take the court, though in what capacity is to be determined.
Wade (knee) participated in morning shootaround and will be a game-time call for Wednesday's Game 5 against the Bulls, the Chicago Tribune reports.
Wade is currently suffering through multiple bone bruises in his right knee, which the team's medical and training staffs will exam before potentially clearing him to play Wednesday. However, considering the mostly one-sided nature of the Heat's last three wins over the Bulls, holding Wade out would likely be the prudent approach, as a setback could severely hinder him the remainder of the postseason.
