Heat's Wayne Ellington: To see around 15 minutes Monday

Ellington (thigh) is expected to play around 15 minutes in Monday's matchup with the Celtics, Manny Navarro of the Miami Herald reports.

Ellington was cleared to make his season debut Monday, after missing the start of the regular season with a thigh injury. Considering it's his first game back, the Heat are going to ease him back into the swing of things, so he's expected to only see roughly 15 minutes. That said, both Dion Waiters (groin) and Tyler Johnson (mouth) have been ruled out and could missed multiple games, so Ellington could capitalize on a few extra minutes once he's cleared for a full minutes load.
