Monta Ellis - Golden State

Season Stats (per game):

15 pts, 3 reb, 3 ast, 1 stl, 0.5 blk, 2 TO. Shooting: 40% FG, 57.1 FT, 2 - 3pts made.

It’s possible that Ellis has been stashed away on someone’s roster all season, but if he’s been left out there on the wire and no one has picked him up yet, pick him up immediately. In his two games back, he’s averaged 15 points, three rebounds, three assists, one steal and one thee-pointer. He’s shooting 40 percent from the field and 57 percent from the free-throw line, but those numbers will improve once he gets a few more games in. He shot 53 percent from the field and 77 percent from the free-throw line last season. There are a ton a players in Golden State that have been getting minutes sporadically all season, but Ellis is sure to be a fixture in the starting lineup from here on out.
