Wayne Ellington: Fills in for Waiters

RotoWire.com Staff

Update: Ellington will start at shooting guard in place of the injured Dion Waiters (knee) for the foreseeable future, the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Recommendation: Waiters will miss the next week, at which point he'll be evaluated to determine if a longer stay on the pine is required for the rookie guard. Meanwhile, in six starts this season, Ellington has averaged 7.8 points (on 30.6 percent shooting), 3.5 rebounds, 1.3 assists, and 1.3 three-pointers in 28.6 minutes. While the production is not overwhelming, owners in deeper formats may want to take a chance on the fourth-year guard.
