Festus Ezeli RumorsAll NBA Players
Rusty Simmons: Festus Ezeli is having surgery on his left knee, according to the Warriors. Updates later.
Warriors backup center Festus Ezeli, who has missed the past four games because of a knee injury, isn’t likely to return to action until after the NBA All-Star Game, coach Steve Kerr said Friday. “We’re going to be cautious,” Kerr said after Golden State completed practice in preparation for Saturday’s home game against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Kerr said nothing has changed, but that Ezeli’s agent and the club will bring in additional doctors the next couple of days to check out the cartilage issue that has sidelined the third-year player, who averages 7.5 points and 5.9 rebounds off the bench.
