Ezeli isn't traveling on the Blazers' current four-game road trip, but his agent indicated that the center isn't facing an impending surgery on his ailing left knee, Jason Quick of CSN Northwest reports.
With Ezeli making limited progress since undergoing a pair of injections in his left knee in August after previously requiring surgery on the knee in February, the Trail Blazers have provided minimal updates on the big man's condition and continue to list him as out indefinitely. Ezeli still seems hopeful to avoid season-ending surgery, but given that he's not yet working out and is far behind the curve from a conditioning standpoint, it appears that a return well after the All-Star break is a best-case scenario for the 27-year-old.
Ezeli (knee) is reportedly considering undergoing a season-ending procedure on his left knee, ESPN reports.
Ezeli is yet to play this season after signing with the Trail Blazers as a free agent, and he missed all of training camp, as well as the preseason, following an offseason procedure on the knee. With progress apparently stagnating, Ezeli is considering another procedure, though at this point no decision has been made. Neither the Blazers nor Ezeli have offered comment, however Ezeli has been traveling with the team in recent weeks, which was thought to be an encouraging sign.
Ezeli (knee) will not be with the Blazers on their upcoming road trip and will be seeking another medical opinion on his injury in the near future, Jason Quick of CSN Northwest reports
Ezeli reportedly suffered a setback with his injury back in October and has been sidelined ever since. He's dealing with chronic knee pain, but received an injection during the offseason that was supposed to address the issue. That said, he'll continue to be away from the team moving forward and is slated to have his knee reevaluated while the team goes on their upcoming road trip. He's yet to be given any sort of concrete timetable for a return, so consider him week-to-week until more information is provided.
Ezeli experienced a minor setback in October during his comeback from a left knee procedure, Jason Quick of CSN Northwest reports.
Ezeli indicated that he experienced swelling in the knee when he took part in back-to-back practices in mid-October, which prompted the Trail Blazers to slow down his rehab effort. The center, who had required an injection back in August to address his chronic knee pain, was initially expected to be available for the start of the season, but the setback looks like it could delay his return until December or later. The Trail Blazers haven't outlined an official timetable for Ezeli, and likely won't until he's cleared to resume full-contact practices.
Ezeli (knee) remains without a timetable for a return, CSN Northwest's Jason Quick reports.
Since undergoing a procedure on his left knee in August, Ezeli's activity has remained very limited, with the center doing little more than light running and shooting and some involvement in five-on-zero drills. Until Ezeli starts taking contact in practice, a return shouldn't be viewed as forthcoming, and based on how primitive his activity remains, it wouldn't be surprising if he was sidelined for several more weeks. Ed Davis should enjoy some longevity as the Blazers' main backup center while Ezeli is out.
