Mike Trudell: Ellington went through a personal tragedy w/his father being killed this year; said his teammates/organization were extremely helpful. “Everybody was so welcoming when I came back. It really helped me just get away and focus on something I love to do.” Ellington is “actually a little nervous for the offseason not beign around guys.” But people like Ed Davis will be there for him.
In a half-joking manner, Scott told Ellington, ” You’re done for the season. You do know that.” An MRI taken on Thursday later confirmed a grade 1 separation in Ellington’s right shoulder, an injury that will indeed sideline him for the eight remaining games, including when the Lakers (20-54) host the Portland Trail Blazers (48-26) on Friday at Staples Center. “I wasn’t surprised at all,” Scott said. “I was disappointed for him because he had such a great season and had been such a great pro. I’m sure he wanted to finish it out.”
