Warriors at Kings gamethread: Festus Ezeli continues to start, Seth Curry out with ankle injury

New, comments

The Warriors are in Sacramento tonight for their first game against the Kings.

The Golden State Warriors will start Festus Ezeli at center again with Andrew Bogut still out due to the lingering effects of a concussion.

And with the way the Warriors are playing and the Sacramento Kings, tonight's opponent, without star center DeMarcus Cousins, point guard Darren Collison (hamstring), and former Santa Cruz Warriors star Seth Curry (ankle - [insert juvenile family joke here]), it would be somewhat difficult to justify rushing Bogut back to the court.

This has been a great opportunity for Ezeli to prove that he can hold down the starting spot and as long as the team isn't losing it will be hard to argue he can't hack it.

We should expect another win tonight but, perhaps more importantly at this point in the season, further signs of growth from Ezeli.
