Blazers center Ezeli undergoes knee surgery, out for the rest of the season

PORTLAND, Ore. – Trail Blazers center Festus Ezeli will be out for the rest of the season after he had knee surgery, team officials announced Wednesday.

Ezeli underwent the surgery on his left knee at a clinic in Vail, Colorado.

The Blazers picked up Ezeli from Golden State in free agency, but he hasn't played this season.

Ezeli signed a two-year deal with Portland last summer, but next season is only partially guaranteed.
