  • Ellington scored 19 points (5-8 FG, 5-8 3PT, 4-4 FT) to go along with two rebounds, two assists and one steal in 30 minutes during Sunday's 100-93 win over Chicago Leading all Miami bench scorers with 19 points, Ellington continued what has been an up and down season from a scoring standpoint. While he has scored in the double-digits five times, the guard has been held to three or fewer points six times. However, in his last four games, Ellington is averaging 17.5 points from the bench. This recent upswing in scoring production is an encouraging sign. However, Ellington's uncertain scoring potential makes him a risky play.

  • Ellington finished with 21 points (6-9 FG, 6-9 3Pt, 3-3 FT), three rebounds and one steal in 27 minutes during Friday's 109-97 victory over the Timberwolves. Ellington poured in another six three-pointers, as he led the team in scoring from the bench. He is currently one of the hottest scorers from beyond the arc in the entire league, averaging five per game over his last three outings. He will not deliver much else in terms of stats, but is a great option as a three-point streamer in most league formats.

  • Ellington compiled 21 points (7-12 FG, 7-12 3Pt), two rebounds, and one steal in 25 minutes during Sunday's 120-95 loss to the Pacers. Ellington finished with season highs in scoring, threes, and field goals made and attempted. The ninth-year veteran knows his role, and he saw 20-plus minutes for the seventh time in 16 games. If Josh Richardson (eye) is forced to miss time, Ellington would be among those who would figure to receive extra minutes. With that being said, he is an inconsistent contributor when it comes to fantasy, and there are too many other healthy players ahead of him on the shooting guard depth chart (Dion Waiters, Tyler Johnson) to trust Ellington in standard leagues.

  • Heat's Wayne Ellington: Hits five threes Sunday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Ellington accumulated 17 points (6-11 FG, 5-9 3Pt), two assists, one rebound and one block across 27 minutes during Sunday's 104-101 win over the Clippers. Ellington's minutes have been all over the place this season, seeing 15 or fewer minutes in five contests (including six-minute and four-minute games) and more than 15 minutes in four games (including two 25-plus minute efforts). While he's a known three-point shooter, his inconsistent role on the Heat makes him a risky fantasy commodity.

  • Ellington (illness) is warming up with the intention of playing in Monday's game against the Timberwolves, Tom D'Angelo of the Palm Beach Post reports. Ellington recently came down with a cold, but is feeling good enough to take the court after going through warmups. Unless another update suggests Ellington won't play, consider him good to go ahead of Monday's contest and he should continue to operate as an offensive spark off the bench. That said, Ellington is averaging just 14.8 minutes per contest, so his utility in fantasy is limited to those in deeper leagues.
