Festus Ezeli's season may very well have ended before it even started.

It's being reported today that Ezeli will undergo season-ending surgery to his left knee before playing a single game this season for the Portland Trail Blazers.

The Blazers signed Ezeli to a two-year, $16 million deal this summer. Ezeli played his first four seasons in the NBA with the Warriors, including winning a title two years ago.

He had his left knee injected with a bone marrow aspirate concentrate to alleviate pain in late August and it now looks like that won't be enough for him to make a full recovery.

The Blazers may have one option to deal with this loss.

This could help Portland more easily acquire another player.
