Warriors vs. Grizzlies gamethread: Festus Ezeli will start for Golden State in Memphis

With Andrew Bogut apparently over his concussion symptoms, there is understandably an ongoing discussion about whether and/or how long Festus Ezeli will continue to start for the Golden State Warriors.

For now, the undefeated Warriors seem content with the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" approach to the starting lineup as they prepare to face the Memphis Grizzlies tonight in The Grindhouse.

As I've said previously, I certainly see the merit to Ezeli continuing to start — even if they do ever lose a game — but it's also understable why people are continuing to wonder about it: Bogut is an elite rim protector when healthy and the Warriors, as a unit, are only more dangerous to their opponents when he's on the floor in big lineups.
