Here is the release the Warriors gave us just before tip off:
Warriors guard Monta Ellis underwent a strength test yesterday and was examined by Dr. John Belzer prior to tonight’s game. Based on the test and the follow-up examination, Monta has been given approval to advance to the “end stage” of his rehabilitation (before practicing), which will include more strenuous running and sprinting, various jumping-related exercises and other elements related to increasing his explosiveness and power. He will also continue to proceed with his basketball skill work (shooting, etc.) in an individual setting.
The next step – at a date to be determined – will be to advance to some form of practice, such as 2-on-2 or 3-on-3 simulated games.
