Just a Mild Knee Sprain for Monta Ellis

by February 10, 2010

Some good news for Monta and the Warriors: “An MRI exam on the injured left knee of Warriors guard Monta Ellis confirmed a mild sprain, the team announced Tuesday. The Warriors have not ruled out the possibility of Ellis playing tonight against the Clippers, just two nights after he had a scary fall. After gliding for a bucket with 3:48 remaining in Monday’s 127-117 loss to Dallas, Ellis’ legs got tangled on the landing and he hyperextended his left knee. He stayed on the court, pounding the floor in pain for several seconds. By the time the postgame locker room opened, however, he said he was more scared than anything. He was able to walk out of Oracle Arena without much of a hobble.”
