Monta Ellis (thigh) scored 32 points on Sunday, tying his second-highest total of the season, but it wasn't enough to avoid an overtime loss vs. Brooklyn.

Ellis played 41 minutes and he's averaging just under 37 per game in March, a number which isn't likely to decrease with Dallas clinging to a half-game lead over Phoenix for the West's eighth seed. It's an ideal situation for fantasy owners, as Ellis is not a threat for a precautionary DNP in the season's final weeks.

Monta Ellis (thigh) will play vs. Brooklyn on Sunday.

He sat out Saturday's practice as a precaution and there was never much doubt about his availability, but it's nice to have early confirmation of his status as the Mavs prepare to host the visiting Nets.

He's coming off a solid game on Friday, in which he scored 26 points on 11-of-14 shooting, and the injury doesn't seem serious. Head coach Rick Carlisle also said this week that Ellis seems "hellbent" on playing in all 82 games this season, and owners can confidently keep him active while checking for updates on Sunday afternoon.

Monta Ellis scored 26 points on 11-of-14 shooting with four rebounds, seven assists and one steal in the Mavs' 122-106 win over the Nuggets on Friday.

The win is huge for the Mavs' playoff hopes as they hang around the Grizzlies and Suns for the last two spots in the West. Ellis is starting to heat up at the right time for owners and he has been very public about wanting to play every game this season. That commitment has returned second-to-third round value this season.

Monta Ellis' strong effort late in the fourth to get the Mavericks to overtime wasn't enough during a 123-122 loss on Wednesday, finishing with 22 points, six boards, four assists, two steals and four 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

His four makes from downtown were a season high and it's the first time he's made at least three since November. Ellis really struggled from deep before the break and made just 30.6 percent during that stretch, but he's coming around now. He'll look to stay hot in a friendly matchup against the Nuggets on Friday.

Monta Ellis hit 6-of-13 shots and a 3-pointer for 15 points, three rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block in Tuesday's loss to his former team, the Warriors.

Ellis wasn't great tonight, but this was a weird game with Jordan Crawford stealing the show for both teams. The Mavericks play at Utah on Wednesday night and it would not be surprising to see Ellis have a nice game against Alec Burks and company. And despite the fact he didn't go nuts against the Dubs, the two steals, block and 3-pointer were nice.
