Ellis had a horrific shooting night Wednesday against the Nuggets, going just 1-for-11 from the field for five points. He added four rebounds and one steal in 22 minutes of action.

This is probably one of the worst games Ellis has played this season, and the absence of Rajon Rondo (Achilles) is likely to blame for it. Ellis had been playing fairly well until this point, and owners can only hope he bounces back for the next game.

Ellis (ankle) is not expected to miss any time, according to coach Rick Carlisle, Mavs.com's Earl Sneed reports.

He left Sunday's game with a left ankle injury, but was cleared to return and Carlisle simply opted to keep him out as a precaution. Ellis is well known as someone who does not miss time due to injury, so owners can feel secure in the fact that he will play Tuesday.

Ellis (ankle) had to leave Sunday's game late in the fourth quarter with an ankle injury, but claims he'll play in the Mavericks next game, Mav's insider Earl K. Sneed reports. In a postgame interview Ellis said, "I'm not missing no games. I'll go home and take care of what I need to take care of."

Ellis wasn't able to finish the game against a tough opponent, which is never a good sign. While we'd like to take his word for it, Ellis should still be considered questionable for the Mavericks' next game on Tuesday against the Washington Wizards. We'll have to wait and see if he practices on Monday, but should most likely be updated on the severity of his ankle injury within the next day.
