Insight: Ellis (18.8 ppg, 5.8 apg, 3.6 rpg) injured his thigh Friday against Denver but was never expected to miss tonight's game. His field goal percentage this season (45.7) is his highest since 2008 (53.1).

2/11/2014 1:48:00 PM
Description: Dallas shooting guard Monta Ellis is questionable for Tuesday's game against Charlotte
Insight: His right hamstring was reportedly tight at Monday's practice. It doesn't sound like Ellis will miss the game, but fantasy owners would be wise to check back before game-time. He has an off shooting night Sunday going 3-of-9 for just 11 points.

Description: It's official. Dallas shooting guard Monta Ellis will be in the lineup Sunday against Boston. SOURCE: Mavs PR on Twitter
Insight: His status had been in question after straining his right hamstring Friday against Utah. It doesn't sound like Ellis (19.5 ppg, 5.8 apg) will be on any kind of minutes restriction, so fantasy owners can feel good about starting him.

Hot11/23/2013 9:41:00 AM
Description: Mavericks guard Monta Ellis had 26 points Friday night against Utah and is averaging 23.5 ppg this season.
Insight: Ellis has attempted just 2.6 threes per game this season and is instead going to the basket more often. He's getting to the free-throw line for a career-high 7.3 attempts pr game.
 
Hot11/13/2013 9:08:00 AM
Description: Mavericks guard Monta Ellis has attempted just 18 threes in eight games this season.
Insight: Ellis finally seems to have realized that he's a terrible 3-point shooter and is sticking to what he does best. He's averaging 22.5 points on 47.4 percent shooting, up from 41.6 percent last season, and getting to the foul line a career-high 6.5 times per game (.885 FT).
 
Hot11/5/2013 10:59:00 PM
Description: Mavericks guard Monta Ellis poured in 30 points on 11-of-14 shooting with nine assists, three rebounds and one steal in 31 minutes Tuesday against the Lakers.
Insight: Ellis is off to a blazing start, making 34-of-64 (.531) from the field and 29-of-32 (.906) from the free-throw line to average 25 ppg in his first four games with Dallas. Perhaps he has finally realized he's not a good 3-point shooter -- he's attempted just nine threes so far.
 
10/30/2013 11:04:00 PM
Description: Mavericks guard Monta Ellis led Dallas to a 118-109 win the season opener Wednesday against the Hawks with 32 points on 11-of-17 shooting (8-8 FT).
Insight: Ellis handed out eight assists and had a pair of steals and threes, but also turned the ball over seven times. He's rarely this efficient when shooting the basketball, so his scoring will depend on volume of shots.
 
7/12/2013 6:49:00 PM
Description: Monta Ellis has agreed to a three-year, $30 million deal with Dallas. SOURCE: ESPN Dallas
Insight: It looks like Ellis would have been better off staying in Milwaukee. The Bucks offered Ellis three years and $36 million about a month ago but he turned it down because he thought he would get better offers. Ellis is replacing O.J. Mayo at shooting guard. Ironically, Mayo signed with Milwaukee, so he'll be filling the void left by Ellis.
 
7/10/2013 7:36:00 PM
Description: Free agent shooting guard Monta Ellis has fired his agent. SOURCE: Chris Broussard, ESPN
Insight: Ellis is having trouble landing a multi-year contract. His best option may have been a three-year, $36 million deal from Milwaukee but he already turned that down. Even if Ellis comes crawling back to them, it's unlikely the Bucks would revisit that offer after already signing O.J. Mayo to replace him.
 
7/1/2013 8:19:00 PM
Description: According to Ken Berger of CBS Sports, Monta Ellis is being courted by the Bulls, Knicks, Nuggets, Spurs and Suns in free agency.
Insight: The Hawks, Mavericks and Lakers could also get involved if their other offseason plans (specifically Dwight Howard) fall through. Ellis is a bit undersized for a two and he takes too many bad shots but teams obviously value his ability to score the basketball.
 
6/18/2013 7:04:00 PM
Description: ESPN reports that the Hawks and Mavericks will both be in the running to sign Monta Ellis this offseason.
Insight: Ellis would be a logical replacement for O.J. Mayo in Dallas while the Hawks haven't had an elite shooting guard since Joe Johnson left. Ellis averaged 19.2 ppg in 82 contests for Milwaukee in 2012-13.
