|Malik Ellison: Placed in protocols|
Ellison was placed in the NBA's COVID-19 protocols Tuesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
The Scoop: The Hawks signed Ellison to a 10-day hardship deal Christmas Day, but he has not appeared in any games, and he'll now be subject to quarantine for the next several days. By the time Ellison clears protocols, chances are the Hawks will have enough of their regulars back that Atlanta won't re-sign him and he'll have to wait until a later date to make his NBA debut.
