Festus Ezeli will return to the Warriors now that he's served his one-game suspension.

This is just a reminder after Ezeli served his suspension in Sunday's win over the Celtics.
Mar 2 - 10:02 AM

Festus Ezeli will be suspended for Sunday's game against the Celtics.

He got into it with Tyler Hansbrough on Friday and this isn't a surprise. Ezeli doesn't really play more than 15 minutes even when the Warriors are missing guys, so he's not worth owning in almost any league. Andrew Bogut is also less likely to be rested on Sunday with Ezeli out.
Feb 28 - 4:54 PM

Festus Ezeli has been recalled from the D-League.

He is still not a lock to play now that the Warriors are healthy in their frontcourt. Ezeli won't see enough minutes even while Andrew Bogut misses games, so he's not worth owning in almost any league.
Feb 2 - 3:45 PM

Festus Ezeli hasn't played for the Warriors since Dec. 23 due to a nagging ankle injury, but he returned to action with Santa Cruz in the D-League on Friday.

While it's great to see him finally over his ankle injury, Ezeli has a long way to go before he will back in the Warriors' rotation. Unless a few injuries open up some playing time, Ezeli can be ignored in almost all fantasy leagues.
Jan 31 - 9:54 AM

Festus Ezeli is expected to start a brief D-League stint this weekend.

He's been battling an ankle injury and the Warriors will want to ease him back. David Lee played well on Tuesday and Marreese Speights has also been a pleasant surprise, so there's no need to rush Ezeli back. He has no fantasy value right now.
Jan 28 - 3:35 PM

Festus Ezeli (ankle) went through a contact practice on Monday.

He is doing 3-on-3 right now and is getting closer to a return. Ezeli won't see much action while Andrew Bogut is healthy and he's not going to get more than 20 minutes even when Bogut can go.
Jan 26 - 3:02 PM

Festus Ezeli (ankle) could be cleared to return to practice soon.

He has been out since Dec. 23 so it will be good to see him back in uniform. However, now that David Lee and Andrew Bogut are healthy, Ezeli won't be in the rotation anytime soon. Leave Ezeli on the wire.
Jan 19 - 8:13 PM

Festus Ezeli (ankle) will not play on Monday against the Nuggets.

The Warriors don't need him now that David Lee and Andrew Bogut are back. Ezeli can be dropped basically everywhere.
Jan 19 - 3:27 PM

Festus Ezeli (ankle) will not play on Tuesday against the Jazz.

He wouldn't have been in the rotation anyway with Andrew Bogut (illness) back and Marreese Speights playing well. Ezeli can be ignored in almost all leagues.
Jan 13 - 7:51 PM

Festus Ezeli (ankle) will not play on Wednesday vs. the Pacers.

He had a very limited role with the Warriors even when they were decimated by injuries, so Ezeli can continue to be ignored in almost all leagues.
Jan 7 - 1:41 PM

Festus Ezeli (ankle) will not play against the Thunder on Monday.

It'll be Marreese Speights in the starting lineup again with Andrew Bogut (knee) also out for this one. Ezeli doesn't get any minutes even with Bogut out, so he can be left on the wire in most leagues.
Jan 5 - 2:48 PM

Festus Ezeli (ankle) does not have a timetable for a return but he is progressing well.

He has a very limited role in Golden State, so even if he was healthy he should still be ignored in almost all leagues. We will pass along further updates as needed, and Marreese Speight will continue to start for the time being.
Tue, Dec 30, 2014 09:04:00 PM

Festus Ezeli (ankle) will not play on Tuesday night against the 76ers.

He was in a walking boot over the weekend and is not back at practice yet. Ezeli was only playing 15.4 minutes per game in his seven starts this season, so he doesn't even have much fantasy value while Bogut is out.
Mon, Dec 29, 2014 03:51:00 PM

An MRI on Festus Ezeli's ankle revealed a sprain, and he will be in a walking boot for the next three days.

Ezeli will be re-evaluated on Monday, but his status shouldn't mean much to owners in standard leagues. Marreese Speights and David Lee will continue to split minutes at the center spot with both Ezeli and Andrew Bogut (knee) unavailable.
