Warriors vs. Clippers: Festus Ezeli out with ankle sprain


Given what happened to the Warriors in the playoffs last season with only Jermaine O'Neal at center, not having Festus Ezeli (or Andrew Bogut) against the Clippers on Christmas Day wouldn't exactly encouraging regardless of what's going on for either team this season. Beyond figuring out who starts, it will be interesting to see what Kerr's rotation looks like, especially since David Lee just came back from injury this week.

Update: Ezeli is officially out with a sprained ankle, per Rusty Simmons of the SF Chronicle.
