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.

ATLANTA -- The Golden State Warriors were running on fumes by the time they got to Atlanta for the last game of a seven-game road trip. But coach Mark Jackson wasn't going to let his team settle for going home with a 5-2 record when they had a chance to make franchise history by finishing the trip 6-1.

It's been a much different story for the Atlanta Hawks and Golden State Warriors since they met a month ago.
Both these teams are among the NBA's biggest surprises, and the Hawks will try to earn a split of the season series with a Warriors team that's wrapping up a seven-game road trip Saturday night.
