Injury News: Down Goes Monta Ellis

You won't be seeing this for a few months… Um…Not good.  Especially if you’re a Warriors fan or a keeper league owner with Monta Ellis on your roster.

Per ESPN’s Marc Stein:

In the latest blow during a difficult summer for Golden State, ESPN.com has learned that Ellis—just awarded one of the biggest pay raises in league history—will be sidelined at least three months, possibly four, after suffering a severe high ankle sprain in his hometown of Jackson, Miss.

Ellis was scheduled to undergo surgery on his left ankle in Alabama on Wednesday, according to team sources, after he informed the club late last week that he had injured himself working out. More specifics about how Ellis sustained the injury were not immediately available.

Now while the megadeal that the Warriors gave Ellis isn’t looking so hot.  However, picking up Marcus Williams in one of the quieter moves of the season could wind up paying huge dividends - especially early on.  Those that were hoping to add Williams as a sleeper this season will have to bump him up their draft sheets a bit as this news is bound to make said “sleeper” not so much of one any longer.
