Ellenson has a sprained ankle and will sit out Tuesday's game against the Hornets, Keith Langlois of Pistons.com reports.

Ellenson was assigned to the D-League late last week, but has since been recalled to the Pistons. Despite being back with the big club, Ellenson is now dealing with an ankle sprain, so he'll get the night off for further rest and recovery. That said, even when at full strength, Ellenson is not a part of the team's regular rotation and has played in just five games so far this season.
