Andrew Bogut (adductor) did not practice on Saturday and Festus Ezeli will start in his place if he cannot play in Monday’s Game 1 against the Thunder.
The Thunder have good size so it makes sense that the Warriors don’t abandon a normal lineup right away if Bogut can’t go. Ezeli is going to play significant minutes if he’s healthy throughout the series, which for him is about 16-20 mpg. He can do decent damage with that much playing time so keep him on your radar as a DFS punt play. In fact, we’ll be rolling with him in many cases until he gives us a reason not to. Owners might be able to squeeze 2-3 good games out of him before the market catches up, regardless of any Bogut absence.
