As reported by Diamond Leung of Inside The Warriors at ibuzz.com, Ezeli will most likely miss the entire Summer League with shin inflammation. The Warriors announced this on the eve of its first workout in Las Vegas.
The injury is a blow to Ezeli, who missed all last season recovering from knee surgery. The Warriors believe the injury is nothing serious, but would rather err on the side of caution and sit him out for as long as possible.
Ezeli was the Warriors first round draft pick in 2012. He averaged 2.4 points and four rebounds in 78 games as a rookie. He had just been cleared last month for five-on-five and had been impressive while playing in pickup games. His return would provide added depth up front behind David Lee, Jermaine O'Neal and Andrew Bogut.
