The Wait for Festus, expanded from six months to nine, and then to 13, continues.
Festus Ezeli, confirmed Monday morning to be on the Warriors Summer League roster, was directed back to the sidelines on Monday night.
The 6-foot-11 center, who spent the season rehabbing his surgically reconstructed right knee, was diagnosed with inflammation in his right shin and "most likely" will not play when the games begin this weekend in Las Vegas, the Warriors announced.
Ezeli in June 2013 underwent surgery to repair his medial collateral ligament and posterior cruciate ligament. The Warriors initially projected a recovery/rehab period of at least six to nine months. That was extended to 11 when Ezeli missed the entire 2013-14 season.
