Warriors hold out Ezeli with right knee injury

Festus Ezeli has a bruised right knee and will miss the Golden
State Warriors’ game at the Atlanta Hawks.

Ezeli banged his knee in Friday night’s loss at Orlando. The
Warriors initially listed Ezeli as active against the Hawks before
announcing minutes before the tipoff he would not play.

Andris Biedrins made his first start of the season in place of
Ezeli on Saturday night.

Ezeli, a rookie from Vanderbilt, is averaging 2.9 points and 3.8
rebounds.

The Warriors were once again without center Andrew Bogut, who is
recovering from ankle surgery, and guard Brandon Rush, who is out
for the year with an injured left knee.
