Ezeli is averaging 7.5 points, 5.9 rebounds and 1.2 blocks on the year. His six career double-doubles have all come this year.

He last played against the San Antonio Spurs when he logged 10 minutes in the 120–90 victory on Jan. 25. He left that game in the third quarter and never returned.

Ezeli underwent an MRI on his knee and has accompanied the team on their East Coast road trip but has not been able to practice.
