Following Thursday’s shootaround, an update from the team was offered that indicates that a game-time decision will be made:

The 30-year-old Ellington coincidentally suffered his injury during a Feb. 27 game against the Sixers, attempting to get through a screen in the second quarter. He didn’t return to the contest and has not seen on-court action since.

Ellington has averaged 11.0 points and 3.0 rebounds per game in his 60 games this season, coming off the bench in all but two of those contests. His two-year, $12 million contract will expire at the end of the season.
