Festus Ezeli eager to get back on court for Warriors
Ezeli is a smart defensive anchor and a solid rim-protector, but if he is ever to become like Noah, who was the NBAís 2014 Defensive Player of the Year, he has to get back on the court.
More than 15 months after the 24-year-old had surgery to reinforce the medial collateral and posterior cruciate ligaments in his right knee, Ezeli still hasnít played full-court, five-on-five action. The procedure was supposed to cost the big man six to nine months.
ďIím hungry. Iím itching,Ē Ezeli said. ďAt this point, I canít even explain how bad I want to be out there. I just canít wait to get out there and do what I love.Ē
