Per Ben Bolch of the Los Angeles Times, Andrew Bogut will not play tonight versus the Los Angeles Clippers.

Bogut has been out since opening day, after suffering a concision after bumping heads with Dante Cunningham of the New Orleans Pelicans in the 3rd quarter. Reports had him listed as questionable, with the Warriors waiting until the morning shoot around to make a final decision.

With Bogut out, Festus Ezeli will more than likely get the start, allowing the Warriors to start the game with some size against DeAndre Jordan, who is currently 2nd in the NBA in total rebounds per game at 13.5, only behind Andre Drummond with an unbelievable 19 rebounds per game average.

Hopefully DJ and the Clippers can take advantage of Golden State's bad luck, although the Warriors are very capable of thriving while playing small ball. Expect to see a lot of small lineups by both squads, expecially when Jordan gets a rest.
