The Golden State Warriors could have really used Festus Ezeli against the Los Angeles Clippers. They were down two big men and had trouble rebounding the ball and could not get easy buckets down low.
Ezeli sprained his ankle in their loss against the Lakers and according to Diamond Leung of the Bay Area News Group, Ezeli will need to wear a boot for a couple of days:
Festus Ezeli will wear boot for 3 days before being reevaluated as sprained ankle confirmed by MRI.

The Warriors play today against the T-Wolves at Oracle Arena and while they would love to have Ezeli back, they could get the win without him. The Dubs need to get Ezeli’s ankle to completely heal, they can’t afford to have him out sporadically throughout the season.
The Warriors are on a two game losing streak, so a home game against the T-Wolves is just what they need to get back on track.
