Ellington is out for personal reasons Friday against the Suns, Anthony Chiang of the Miami Herald reports. Ellington won't make the flight to Phoenix, but there is an expectation that he will re-join the squad at some point during the road trip, which continues Saturday against the Clippers and goes through Wednesday's game at Utah. With Ellington sidelined, Tyler Johnson and Dwyane Wade could pick up some extra run.
Ellington recorded 15 points (5-13 FG, 5-11 3Pt), five rebounds, five steals and three assists across 32 minutes in Tuesday's 115-113 loss to the Hawks. Ellington is now averaging three steals per game over his last three contests, and while the scoring hasn't been there, his defensive energy is certainly appreciated. Averaging 7.5 three-point attempts per game this season, Ellington will look to find the bottom of the net more often than not from deep, with the potential to blow up on a given night if he gets hot.
