Warriors’ Festus Ezeli could return Sunday


As the Warriors enter the home stretch of their chase for 73 wins, they may be getting a pretty important piece back soon. Backup center Festus Ezeli, who has been recovering from knee surgery and last played on January 25, could return Sunday against the Trail Blazers.

From ESPN’s Marc Spears:

Andrew Bogut left Friday night’s loss to the Celtics with a rib injury and his status is unknown for Sunday’s game (although the injury didn’t seem serious). Getting Ezeli back will be huge for their depth and allow them to rest Bogut if necessary.
