Monta Ellis Ready to Go

Warriors guard Monta Ellis is in Phoenix with the team and will play in today’s game against the Suns.

Ellis – who was with the team for breakfast according to a Warriors spokesperson – missed Saturday’s loss to visiting Phoenix while attending his grandmother’s funeral. Mary Cole died Christmas morning at age 89. Ellis played the first three games while grieving.

In his absence, Golden State was routed by the 76ers, managing just 79 points on 38.2 percent shooting – at Oracle Arena, no less. Ellis is averaging 21 points and 7.7 assists.
