Wayne Ellington starts at SG for Lakers (Oct 23 12:00 ET )
With Kobe Bryant sitting out on Wednesday, Wayne Ellington started at SG and had 11 points, two rebounds, two assists, two steals and a 3-pointer.
Rookie Julius Randle scored 11 of his 17 points in the fourth quarter, and Jeremy Lin added 13 points in the Los Angeles Lakers' 94-86 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers in a preseason game Wednesday night. Wayne Ellington and Wesley Johnson scored 11 points apiece for the Lakers (3-4), who played a solid defensive game and surged in the fourth quarter despite 18 turnovers. Los Angeles won without Kobe Bryant, who sat out to rest.
The Scoop:Ellington has played for the Timberwolves, Cavs, Grizzlies, and Mavs during his brief five-year career, and boasts career averages of 6.4 points, and 1.8 rebounds on 41.8 percent shooting from the field. In other words, he's completely irrelevant from a fantasy perspective.
The Scoop:Ellington never figured to be a primary piece to the Kings rotation, and Sunday was the last day teams could apply the waive-and-stretch provision. There doesn't seem to be much interest in Ellington around the league, but if he is able to sign somewhere, he'll still be irrelevant in fantasy circles.
