Warriors' Festus Ezeli: Makes limited impact in Game 7 start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ezeli went scoreless (0-4 FG) and collected a rebound and an assist across 11 minutes in Sunday's 93-89 Game 7 loss to the Cavaliers.

Ezeli entered the starting lineup for Game 7 as coach Steve Kerr looked to use a natural center in place of the injured Andrew Bogut (knee), but Ezeli's awful play resulted in Kerr leaning quite heavily on small-ball lineups. While he served as a quality backup for much of the first half of the season, Ezeli struggled to make an impact after returning to action in early April from an arthroscopic knee procedure that cost him over two months. Over his 29 games following his return (including playoffs), Ezeli averaged just 3.9 points and 2.9 rebounds over 9.0 minutes per game.

Warriors' Festus Ezeli: Starting in Game 7 on Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ezeli will start at small forward for Game 7 of the NBA Finals.

Ezeli replaces Andre Iguodala, who suffered some back tightness in Game 6 on Thursday. Head coach Steve Kerr expects Iguodala to play, but instead will come off the bench behind Ezeli. It's unclear how much the back injury will effect Iguodala, but in the case that he plays less because of it, it's likely Ezeli will see a bump in playing time.

Warriors' Festus Ezeli: Helps fill in for injured Bogut
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Ezeli had two points (1-3 FG), three rebounds and a blocked shot across 10 minutes during Monday's 112-97 loss to the Cavaliers in Game 5.

Ezeli, who played a combined four minutes in Games 3 and 4, got a bump in playing time after Andrew Bogut left the game with a sprained knee in the third quarter. With Bogut ruled out for the rest of the contest and the team already missing Draymond Green (suspension), coach Steve Kerr used several combinations of players, but never hit on the right rotation to improve the Warriors' effectiveness on defense. As such, Ezeli, Marreese Speights (11 minutes), Anderson Varejao (nine minutes) and James McAdoo (eight minutes) all got some court time, in addition to Ezeli. Bogut's injury looks bad, so there's a good chance he won't be available for Game 6 in Cleveland on Thursday. If Bogut can't play and Kerr wants a center to replace him in the starting lineup, Ezeli is the most likely fill-in option.

Warriors' Festus Ezeli: Scores six points in 11 minutes in Game 2 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ezeli supplied six points (2-3 FG, 2-2 FT), two rebounds and one assist across 11 minutes in Sunday's 110-77 Game 2 win over the Cavaliers.

Despite the fact that the Warriors built a 20-point advantage heading into the fourth quarter, Ezeli wasn't able to pick up many extra minutes as a result. He's suited up in all 19 of the Warriors' postseason contests, but has seen no more than 14 minutes in any game.

Warriors' Festus Ezeli: Perfect from field in Wednesday's Game 2 win over Thunder
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Ezeli scored 12 points (5-5 FG, 2-6 FT) to go with five rebounds, one assist and one block across 14 minutes during the Warriors' 118-91 win over the Thunder in Wednesday's Game 2.

Ezeli matched his postseason high in minutes, and he didn't disappoint. Ezeli actually played only two minutes less than Warriors starting center Andrew Bogut, and the former did a solid job of keeping the Thunder big men off the boards. With as much depth down low as this team has in Bogut, Draymond Green and Marreese Speights, Ezeli shouldn't be expected to play heavy minutes at any point in the series, but he could at least see a little more playing time in light of his Game 2 performance.
