Active Bruised right calf Open link
Ellis will be active and in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game vs. the Thunder, as expected. He went through all of practice on Tuesday and had been considered probable heading in. "If he's feeling good and you want to try to talk him out of playing, you're welcome to," said coach Rick Carlisle. Ellis sat out on Saturday due to a bruised right calf, which he suffered during Friday's loss on a play where Manu Ginobili's knee hit his calf while he was attempting to steal the ball. His return will cut into the minutes of Richard Jefferson, Devin Harris, and Al-Farouq Aminu on the wing.

Out Bruised right calf Open link
Ellis has been ruled out for Sunday's contest vs. the Pacers, as expected. "We don’t think it’s serious," coach Rick Carlisle said.

He remained in the game for a few minutes after the play, but was eventually subbed out and was looked at on the bench for a few minutes before departing for the locker room. Ellis said had pain from his knee down to his foot and had to leave the arena on crutches. He has been able to get off the crutches since, but is still very sore and remains without a definitive timetable for a return. Richard Jefferson, Devin Harris, and Al-Farouq Aminu will see additional run on the wing for however long Ellis is sidelined.

2/11/2015 6:06 PM

Questionable Sprained left ankle Open link
Ellis left Sunday's game towards the end of the fourth quarter with a left ankle injury, but said afterward that he doesn't expect to miss any games. "I'll go home and take care of what I need to take care of," said Ellis. He rolled the ankle when he landed on Andre Roberson's foot while coming down from an off-balance shot attempt in the paint. Ellis remained on the court for a few minutes before leaving the court under his own power, although he walked very gingerly to the Mavs' bench. We'll call him questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Wizards for now and look for further updates on Monday. Devin Harris and Richard Jefferson would see the run at shooting guard if Ellis does end up needing to miss any time.
12/26/2014 5:55 PM

Ellis labored through a right elbow injury during Tuesday's loss, going just 1-for-11 from the field. He suffered the injury after getting his elbow hit on Sunday, and had his arm wrapped in ice for most of Tuesday up until pre-game warmups. We'll continue to keep an eye on his status just in case he has any more issues with it or suffers an aggravation.
12/9/2014 9:41 PM
Probable Right elbow Open link
Ellis was clearly still feeling the effects of his right elbow injury during Tuesday's loss, as he labored through a 1-for-11 shooting performance. He said he felt "fine" though and will play on Wednesday vs. the Pelicans. "Most guys in this league wouldn't have even attempted to play," coach Rick Carlisle said. "We've got to see how he's doing [Wednesday]. It was just a very tough situation for him. Hopefully it's more of a day-to-day thing, and hopefully he's feeling a lot better [Wednesday]. We'll have to wait and see." Ellis suffered the injury during Sunday's win and had his arm wrapped in ice for most of Tuesday up until pre-game warmups. Though he plans to play, we'll continue to keep an eye on his status in case he has any more issues with it or suffers an aggravation.

He had his right arm iced throughout the day, and we'll continue to keep an eye on his status in case he has any issues with it or suffers an aggravation.
12/9/2014 6:31 PM
Probable Right arm Open link
Ellis is participating in pre-game warmups, and coach Rick Carlisle said he is hopeful that he'll be able to play in Tuesday's contest vs. the Grizzlies. The fact that Ellis is out there going through his usual pre-game routine is promising and it looks as of now that he's more likely to play than not. He hit his right elbow during Sunday's win and has been getting his arm iced down throughout the day. Devin Harris, Jae Crowder, and Richard Jefferson would see additional run on the wing in the off chance that Ellis has to sit out.
12/9/2014 5:47 PM
Questionable Right arm Open link
Coach Rick Carlisle said that Ellis hit his right elbow during Sunday's win over the Bucks and is questionable for Tuesday vs. the Grizzlies. Ellis was seen getting his right arm iced down after Tuesday shootaround and, when asked if there was anything to be concerned about, coach Rick Carlisle replied, "We hope not." Devin Harris, Jae Crowder, and Richard Jefferson would see additional run on the wing if this does happen to sideline Ellis for Tuesday's game.
10/13/2014 1:50 PM
Probable Sprained left knee Open link
Ellis went through all of practice on Monday according to coach Rick Carlisle and will play in Friday's preseason game.

10/10/2014 11:26 AM
Injured Sprained left knee Open link
Ellis will miss the Mavs' next two preseason games due to a sprained left knee that he suffered in Thursday's practice. Coach Rick Carlisle says the injury isn't serious, and the diagnosis showed no structural damage. He is officially listed as day-to-day. The team is just exercising caution here in holding Ellis out, and this shouldn't affect his availability for the season opener.
