Ellington (non-COVID illness) is listed as out for Tuesday's contest with the Rockets.

Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com reports that Ellington did not travel with the team to Houston, which suggests that the veteran will not only be out Tuesday, but he will likely also be out for the second half of the Lakers' back-to-back road trip as well. During his absence, Avery Bradley, Malik Monk and Talen Horton-Tucker are expected to see increased minutes. Ellington will likely rejoin the team when they return to home to face the Trail Blazers on Friday.
