  • Lakers' Wayne Ellington: Starting for THT

    Ellington will start Wednesday's game against the Mavs, Kyle Goon of Southern California News Group reports.

    With Talen Horton-Tucker in COVID-19 protocols, Ellington will slide into the lineup on the wing alongside Avery Bradley, Russell Westbrook, LeBron James and Anthony Davis. Ellington saw only seven minutes of action off the bench against Orlando on Sunday, but he should be looking at a boosted role for the next several games. Unless you're a fantasy manager in desperate need of threes, Ellington should remain on waivers in most leagues.
