Festus Ezeli: Past News Updates   ( ▲ View most recent update )

Ezeli (knee) said Thursday that he no longer has a definitive timetable for a return, Ananth Pandlan of CBS Sports reports. "I personally don't have a timeline," Ezeli said. "I'm taking it day by day because when it comes to this situation, you never go with a timeline. It will frustrate me if I go by a timeline. I just try to take it by how I feel so hopefully sometime soon I can get back on the court and start playing again."

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016-17

There was no outlook written for Festus Ezeli.

2015-16

Ezeli returned to active duty in 2014-15 after sitting out the entire 2013-14 season while recovering from surgery on his ACL and MCL in his right knee. A combination of a relatively healthy Andrew Bogut and an increasing reliance on small-ball lineups left Ezeli with little playing time. He averaged just 11 minutes per game in 46 games. At this stage of his career, Ezeli is all defense. He averaged 3.0 blocks and 11.1 rebounds per 36 minutes. Offensively, his hands have gotten better, though he's still very much limited to dunks and put-backs. He's entering the final year of his rookie deal, and the Warriors want to retain him at a reasonable price. Bogut's still around for another two years, but the organization is interested in having an inexpensive and familiar in-house option as a replacement.

2014-15

Ezeli missed the entire 2013-14 season after undergoing surgery to repair the medial collateral and posterior cruciate ligaments in his right knee back in June 2013. The Warriors' initial timetable had him returning last season, but he kept getting pushed back and never made it to the court. He was medically cleared to play this summer but suffered inflammation in his right shin and didn't see action at the Las Vegas Summer League. The injury was not considered serious, and we expect Ezeli in camp to compete for a depth role at center. He's an outstanding shot blocker, but work remains to refine his overall game. After missing a year of development time due to the knee injury, it would not be surprising to see Ezeli get a lot of D-League minutes this season.

2013-14

Ezeli had offseason knee surgery and is not expected to be ready to play until December, at the earliest. He received a fair amount of playing time as a rookie in 2012-13 because of the recuperation time Andrew Bogut needed after undergoing ankle surgery. With Bogut healthy heading into training camp and veteran Jermaine O'Neal on board for the season, Ezeli's role will be diminished once he returns. He's a feared shot-blocker, but could use some development time in the D-League.

2012-13

Ezeli is athletic and mobile, but is a work-in-progress at both ends of the floor. Heís an aggressive shot blocker, though probably too aggressive as it takes him out of rebounding position when, more than anything, the Warriors could use rebounding help in the frontcourt. Where he fits in the big-man rotation is up in the air as the team enters training camp. He could usurp minutes from the disappointing Andris Biedrins, but the addition of Carl Landry could block Ezeliís path to meaningful playing time.
