Pistons' Wayne Ellington: Coming off bench Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellington will come off the bench Friday against the Suns, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.

With Josh Jackson (ankle) returning to the starting five, Ellington will come off the bench. He's seen 49 total minutes across the past two games and that role is likely going to dip Friday.

Pistons' Wayne Ellington: Scores 12 points in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellington registered 12 points (5-9 FG, 2-6 3Pt), three rebounds, a steal and a block across 24 minutes in Wednesday's 130-115 loss against the Bucks.

Ellington got the start at shooting guard with the Pistons struggling with injuries in the backcourt and made his presence felt -- he was one of two Detroit starters who surpassed the 10-point mark. He's played in just three games this season (two starts), but Ellington's scored in double digits in each of those games.

Pistons' Wayne Ellington: Remains in starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellington is starting Wednesday's game against the Bucks, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.

The 33-year-old will make his second straight start with Killian Hayes (hip) and Josh Jackson (ankle) sidelined. Ellington had 13 points (5-7 FG, 3-4 3Pt), four rebounds, two assists and one steal in 25 minutes Monday.

Pistons' Wayne Ellington: Scores 13 points in start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellington had 13 points (5-7 FG, 3-4 3Pt), four rebounds, two assists and one steal across 25 minutes during a 125-115 loss to the Bucks on Monday.

Despite playing once in the Pistons' first six games this season, Ellington was given a start. He was serviceable, scoring at least 12 points and three treys for the first time since March 2. Ellington's career stats have shown he is unlikely to maintain this pace. However, Ellington may have chances to play more if Jackson and Killian Hayes (leg) miss time due to injuries.

Pistons' Wayne Ellington: Joins starting five
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellington is starting Monday's game against Milwaukee, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports.

Ellington will draw the start Monday with Josh Jackson (ankle) ruled out. He's appeared in one contest so far this season, scoring 11 points in 21 minutes of action Dec. 28 against Atlanta.

Pistons' Wayne Ellington: To play in Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellington agreed to a one-year, $2.6 million contract with the Pistons on Tuesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

Ellington ended the 2018-19 season with Detroit, and the franchise has opted to bring back the veteran journeyman, who has played for eight other teams. It doesn't seem like Ellington will have a sizeable role with the Pistons given that the team is rebuilding. Last season with the Knicks, he averaged 5.1 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 15.5 minutes.

Wayne Ellington: Cut loose by Knicks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Knicks waived Ellington on Thursday.

New York pared down its roster before the start of free agency, as two-way player Kenny Wooten was cut, while Ellington, Taj Gibson and Elfrid Payton all had their 2020-21 options declined. A career 37.8 percent shooter from distance, Ellington should find a home elsewhere as a three-point specialist off the bench.

Knicks' Wayne Ellington: Scores 15 points off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellington posted 15 points (5-8 FG, 5-8 3Pt), three rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 19 minutes during Monday's 125-123 win over the Rockets.

Ellington has been out of the rotation for most of the season, but he has appeared in seven out of 10 games from Feb. 6 onward. He has scored in double digits four times during that stretch and could be headed for a bigger role off the bench during the final weeks of the regular season.

Knicks' Wayne Ellington: Not part of rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellington (coach's decision) didn't see the floor during Wednesday's 107-101 loss to the Hornets.

Ellington had been dealing with illness over the last several days but was cleared to play in this one. Nevertheless, he didn't end up earning a single second on a night when 11 Knicks earned double-digit minutes. Ellington is in the midst of a down year in terms of his three-point shooting, and he does little else besides that.

Knicks' Wayne Ellington: Available Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellington (illness) is available Wednesday against the Hornets.

Ellington has been battling an illness, but he'll make his return to the court Wednesday. Since the New Year, he's averaging 6.7 points, 1.7 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 17.3 minutes.

Knicks' Wayne Ellington: Expected back Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellington (illness) is considered probable for Wednesday's game against the Hornets, Ian Begley of SNY reports.

Ellington had been battling an illness for the last several days, but he's trending toward returning to availability Wednesday night. Over his last four healthy games, Ellington is averaging 12.3 points and 3.0 made threes in 23.0 minutes.

Knicks' Wayne Ellington: Not on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knicks' Wayne Ellington: Limited in practice Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellington was limited in Saturday's practice due to a strained right ankle, Steve Popper of Newsday reports.

Ellington emerged from Friday's tilt with Indiana with an ankle issue. While it doesn't appear to be too severe, there's a chance it could cause him to miss Monday's game against the Rockets.

Knicks' Wayne Ellington: Good to go Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellington (ankle) is available Friday at Indiana.

The 32-year-old is dealing with a right ankle strain but will play through the issue Friday. Ellington is averaging 5.1 points in 15.3 minutes through 28 games this season.

Knicks' Wayne Ellington: Questionable for Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellington (ankle) is questionable for Friday's game against the Pacers.

Ellington is dealing with a strained right ankle, leaving his status up in the air for Friday's game against Indiana. He'll likely test the issue out during warmups before a determination is made regarding his availability.

Knicks' Wayne Ellington: Ties for team scoring lead
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellington put up 17 points (6-12 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT) to go with five rebounds and three assists across 27 minutes Saturday in the Knicks' 95-92 win over the Pistons.

After opening February outside of interim coach Mike Miller's rotation, Ellington has surprisingly logged 45 minutes between the past two contests, turning in double-digit scoring performances in both of those outings. His 17 points Saturday tied Julius Randle for tops on the team, and Ellington logged eight minutes more than any of the other five players who were used off the bench. Though the veteran doesn't really have a spot in the rebuilding Knicks' long-term plans, Ellington looks like he could receive more opportunities on the wing following the recent trade of Marcus Morris to the Clippers.

Knicks' Wayne Ellington: Off injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellington (illness) doesn't appear on the Knicks' injury report for Monday's game against the Cavaliers.

Ellington had been listed as questionable with the illness ahead of the Knicks' previous game Saturday, but he ultimately gained clearance to suit up in the team's 90-87 loss to the 76ers. The veteran failed to see the floor in a coach's decision, however, as bench boss Mike Miller opted to go with Allonzo Trier and Kevin Knox as the backup wings behind starters Reggie Bullock and Marcus Morris.

Knicks' Wayne Ellington: Questionable Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellington is questionable for Saturday's game against the 76ers due to an illness.

Ellington's availability has been sparse all season, and it's possible he misses his 22nd game of the year Saturday. If that's the case, Allonzo Trier, Kadeem Allen and Damyean Dotson could all see extra minutes.

Knicks' Wayne Ellington: Offers little in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ellington (Achilles) had just three points, two steals, one rebound and one assist in 15 minutes during Tuesday's 117-87 loss to the Lakers.

Ellington made his return after missing 10 games with an Achilles injury. He is likely to be eased back into things and only played 15 minutes in the blowout. Ellington struggles to have 12-team value even when he is playing starter's minutes. That in itself seems a long way off at this point and he should be ignored in all standard leagues.
