Heat's Wayne Ellington: In the starting lineup Tuesday

Ellington will start at small forward for Tuesday's exhibition game against the Magic, Manny Navarro of the Miami Herald reports.

Justise Winslow is sitting out with a back injury, so Ellington will slide over to small forward as a fill-in with the top overall unit. Ellington is slated to see time at shooting guard as well this season, but is currently sitting behind Dion Waiters and Tyler Johnson on the depth chart. A few good showings over the final stretch of the preseason schedule could earn Ellington some additional minutes in the regular rotation to start the season.
