      Nets' Wayne Ellington: Plays 14 bench minutes Wednesday

      Ellington scored four points and grabbed two rebounds and an assist against the Hornets on Wednesday. Ellington has played in every game for Brooklyn this year, and is averaging 3.5 points in 14.6 minutes per game. He hasn't been much of a scoring threat so far in his first season with the Nets, and he's currently behind Joe Johnson and Bojan Bogdanovic on the depth chart which limits his opportunities as well.

      Nets' Wayne Ellington: Heads to the bench Saturday

      Ellington will move to the bench Saturday against the Grizzlies, Andy Vasquez of The Record reports. Ellington struggled mightily over two starts this season, only making one shot on nine attempts after a total of 30 minutes on the court. Markel Brown moves into the starting five Saturday in place of Ellington, but neither options offer much in the way of production, regardless of who starts.

      Nets G Wayne Ellington will start in season opener Wednesday

      Nets guard Wayne Ellington will start in the Wednesday season opener against the Bulls, per Rod Boone of Newsday. Ellington has been an underwhelming option over the course of his six-year career and a new stop in Brooklyn won't likely change things for the better. He seems to be in store for significant minutes while playing ahead of Bojan Bogdanovic, which could make him valuable in deeper formats.

      Nets G Wayne Ellington might start over Bojan Bogdanovic

      Nets guard Bojan Bogdanovic isn't necessarily a lock to open the season as the starting shooting guard, according to Andy Vasquez of The Record. Lionel Hollins has said that he won't reveal his starting lineup until the day of the regular season opener Oct. 28 against the Bulls.But given the wretched preseason for Bogdanovic, it is believed that Wayne Ellington could open as the starter. Bogdanovic appeared to be in the driver's seat for that role entering training camp, but after shooting a 33.3 percent from the field and 23.5 percent from three-point range over four preseason games, his stock seems to have plummeted.

      Nets' Wayne Ellington: Could be candidate to start at shooting guard

      Ellington could be under consideration to open the season as the Nets' starter at shooting guard, Andy Vasquez of The Record reports. Coach Lionel Hollins remained adamant at Thursday's practice that he wouldn't reveal his lineup for the Oct. 28 season opener with the Bears until that day, so it remains purely speculative at this point that Ellington may garner starter duties. However, after the frontrunner for the shooting guard gig, Bojan Bogdanovic, suffered through a miserable preseason (8.8 points on 33.3 percent shooting from the field over 26 minutes per game), there may be some momentum working in Ellington's favor. Ellington wasn't exactly a standout performer in the exhibition schedule either with a 36.8 percent mark from the field over five games, but he did connect on 45 percent of his three-point attempts. That reliability from deep has been a trademark for Ellington throughout his career, and may be enough to earn him temporary starting status while Bogdanovic works through his shooting slump. Bogdanovic likely still remains the more intriguing commodity in season-long formats, but if the minutes favor Ellington in the early going, he could be a cheap, useful option in daily games.
