Wayne Ellington (personal) is expected to be available for Friday's game against the Blazers.

Ellington will be ready for his usual 11-15 minutes off the bench.
Mar 7 - 11:48 AM

Wayne Ellington will miss Wednesday's game for personal reasons.

Ellington is averaging just 12 minutes per game over the past month and his absence won't have a significant impact, likely shifting a few extra minutes to Vince Carter and Devin Harris.
Mar 5 - 12:41 PM

Wayne Ellington didn't feel 100 percent during Monday's win over Orlando.

Ellington played 21 minutes for the Mavs Monday night and responded with his best game of the season. "I still wasn’t feeling too good," he said. "But you feel a lot better when you see shots go in. And we got the win." It's nice to see Ellington feeling better, but we'll still need to see more of Ellington before making a recommendation on him.
Jan 14 - 11:27 AM

Wayne Ellington (illness) set season-bests in points (12) and rebounds (6) over 21 minutes in Monday's game against the Magic.

Ellington hit 5-of-8 shots (including two threes) and this is easily his best game in an absentee season. If he can keep any of this rolling we'll let you know.
Jan 14 - 1:44 AM

Wayne Ellington is expected to be available for Monday's game vs. the Magic.

There is still no word on Shawn Marion for tonight's game. If Marion is out, Ellington might start for the Mavs tonight. Although, Jae Crowder was productive in two starts over the weekend.
Jan 13 - 7:01 PM

Wayne Ellington (illness) will be available on Monday, according to Rick Carlisle.

His return boosts the Mavericks' perimeter shooting but it won't have a substantial impact for fantasy owners, especially if Shawn Marion (shoulder) is in uniform. Ellington has yet to score double-digit points this season.
Jan 13 - 11:56 AM

Wayne Ellington (illness) will not play against the Pelicans on Saturday.

The Mavericks will likely start Jae Crowder, who played 40 minutes in his start on Friday night. Crowder is worth a look as a spot-start, especially with the Pelicans playing some pathetic defense lately.
Jan 11 - 7:01 PM

Wayne Elliington will not play against the Pelicans on Friday night due to an illness.

He was in the starting lineup with Shawn Marion (shoulder, ribs) out on Tuesday, but only played 12 minutes. The Mavs might go with Jae Crowder in the starting lineup while Vince Carter also figures to get more playing time.
Jan 10 - 7:45 PM

Wayne Ellington made his first start of the season on Wednesday vs. the Spurs, scoring five points with one 3-pointer in 12 minutes.

He drew the start for the injured Shawn Marion (shoulder) and was more of a placeholder for the Mavs rotation. Even with Marion unlikely to play on Friday, Ellington has very little fantasy value.
Jan 8 - 9:28 PM

Wayne Ellington will start at small forward for the Mavericks on Wednesday.

He started the second half of Tuesday's game after the injury to Shawn Marion (shoulder) and this is not a surprise. Ellington did only play seven minutes last night, so this is hardly an indication he's going to see big minutes. Jae Crowder and Vince Carter figure to get more shots tonight.
Jan 8 - 6:58 PM

Wayne Ellington (illness) is probable for Monday's game vs. the Wolves.

Ellington is averaging 2.6 points in eight minutes per game off the Mavs' bench this season.
Mon, Dec 30, 2013 10:49:00 AM

Wayne Ellington (illness) will not fly with the team for Saturday's game against the Bulls.

He will rejoin the team later on the road trip. The Mavericks have a bug going around the locker room, so there's no reason to bring a guy that isn't in the rotation with the team. Ellington has no fantasy value while the team is remotely healthy.
Fri, Dec 27, 2013 02:47:00 PM

The Mavericks and Wayne Ellington agreed to terms on a two-year, $5 million-plus contract, league sources tell Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski.

Ellington should have more chances at playing time in a revamped Dallas backcourt next season. The former UNC Tar Heel showed he can produce when given playing time, averaging 11.4 points over the last 19 games of the season. However, he's unlikely to affect many fantasy formats without consistent playing time.

The Cavaliers could still bring back Wayne Ellington and Daniel Gibson.

Cleveland made a big signing over the weekend, picking up Jarrett Jack to bolster their backcourt rotation. While Gibson had a down year due to numerous injuries, Ellington had some productive games, including am 11.4 points per game average over the last 19 games of the season. Obviously, he would have less opportunity with a healthy Cavs team this year.
