      Pacers' Monta Ellis: Scores 20 points in Monday's loss

      Ellis scored 20 points (9-20 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT) with six assists and four rebounds over 36 minutes in Monday's 96-95 loss to the Bulls. With George Hill (illness) and Rodney Stuckey (ankle) both sidelined, Ellis finished second on the Pacers in minutes on the night. He's scored 20 or more points in three of his past five games, delivering a more consistent scoring effort.

      Pacers' Monta Ellis: Ends slump on Friday with 24 points

      Ellis recorded 24 points (11-17 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds, five assists, two steals, and one block in 37 minutes during the Pacers' 107-103 win versus the Wolves on Friday. Through 10 games with the Pacers, Ellis is averaging 12.6 points on 43 percent from the field, 23 percent from beyond the arc, and 74 percent from the free-throw line to go along with 3.2 rebounds, 4.9 assists, 1.8 steals, and 0.3 blocks in 33 minutes per game. After being the number one offensive option in Dallas for the last few seasons, Ellis has struggled so far in his new role with the Pacers, shooting poorly while committing 2.6 turnovers per game. However, with Rodney Stuckey (ankle) sidelined, Ellis may be forced to play extended minutes more often, which could help him produce more consistently useful counting stats.

      Pacers' Monta Ellis: Struggles in win

      Ellis posted 13 points (4-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-6 FT), two rebounds, six assists, and four steals in 35 minutes of action Wednesday against the Celtics. Ellis has found himself in the middle of a mini-slump, shooting just 5-for-18 for a total of 15 points over the last two games. He's been able to contribute 5.0 APG and 3.0 SPG during that span, so it's not a total loss for owners. However, he'll need to rack up more points to become a more effective fantasy option.

      Pacers' Monta Ellis: Submits two-point night

      Ellis posted just two points (1-9 FG, 0-2 3Pt) along with four assists, four rebounds, and two steals in Monday's win over the Magic. After a sluggish start to the season, Ellis seemed to have a breakthrough after pouring in 25 points Sunday against the Cavaliers, but he was unable to keep the momentum going in the second half of the back-to-back. He's now posted four- and two-point efforts in two of his last three games, forcing George Hill to shoulder more of the scoring burden in the backcourt.

      Pacers' Monta Ellis: Slow start to season continued Tuesday

      Ellis scored 15 points (7-16 FG, 1-4 3Pt) while chipping in three assists, three rebounds and three steals in Tuesday's 94-82 win over the Pistons. Ellis' start to his career in Indiana hasn't been as glamorous as fans have anticipated. He turned in a solid shooting night from the field, but has really struggled from beyond the arc, 2-for-11 in four games. Ellis isn't going to get the volume of shots to put up big numbers on the Pacers, but will eventually have one of his vintage breakout games.

      Pacers' Monta Ellis: Will start for Indiana Wednesday

      Ellis (illness) will start for Indiana Wednesday against Toronto, Candace Buckner of IndyStar Sports reports. Ellis missed the last preseason game with a respiratory infection, but it appears he's better as he is back in the starting lineup for the season opener Wednesday. The shooting guard will likely get a majority of the share of minutes at shooting guard, and it is unlikely that his illness will have any effect going forward.

      Pacers' Monta Ellis: To sit with illness Thursday

      Ellis is dealing with an upper-respiratory infection and won't play in Thursday's preseason contest against the Hornets. Thursday's game marks the Pacers' preseason finale, but there doesn't seem to be any concern that Ellis will be at risk of missing the team's regular-season opener, on tap for next Wednesday in Toronto. Rodney Stuckey or Joe Young could enter the starting lineup for the exhibition in place of Ellis.

      Pacers' Monta Ellis: Tallies 14 points Tuesday

      Ellis tallied 14 points (6-11 FG, 2-4 3Pt), three assists, two rebounds, and two steals over 32 minutes in Tuesday's 103-94 loss to the Bulls. The veteran has put up back-to-back 14-point outings, and seems to be hitting his stride shooting-wise as the regular season draws near. Ellis has sunk 67 percent (12-for-18) of his shots over that pair of contests, although he came up empty from beyond the arc on two attempts Tuesday. Although he will be a part of a starting five with multiple offensive options, Ellis will likely still have his torrid shooting nights from time to time throughout the regular season.

      Pacers PG Monta Ellis suits up Tuesday despite knee sprain

      Pacers point guard Monta Ellis collected three points (1-5 FG, 1-3 3Pt), two assists, and a rebound over 14 minutes against the Pistons on Tuesday. Ellis was able to shake off his recent knee ailment and suit up for Tuesday's matchup against the Pistons. The veteran guard was coming off back-to-back double-digit scoring games but played his least number of minutes of the four exhibition contests to date, totaling only three points. The Pacers figure to limit Ellis' minutes to a degree in preseason so as to preserve his body for the 2015-16 campaign.

      Pacers PG Monta Ellis will play Tuesday vs. Pistons

      Pacers point guard Monta Ellis (knee) will play in Tuesday's preseason game against the Pistons. Ellis was initially considered doubtful, but he's apparently moved past his sprained right knee and will likely get the starting nod at shooting guard Tuesday night.
