Monta Ellis’ Mysterious Injury

Monta EllisTotal Pro Sports – There are many reports on how Monta Ellis actually got hurt, but which one is actually true? Was he actually playing pick up ball with his friends and injured his ankle? Or was he running on a slippery pool deck?  We all hope the truth will soon finaly come out.

Ellis initially told club officials he sustained the injury while working out in Mississippi – but the injury actually “happened outdoors and not while playing basketball,” an unnamed team source told the Contra Costa Times over the weekend. The newspaper reported Ellis has informed Warriors officials how he really hurt his ankle, though its source did not reveal the details.

Jeff Fried, Ellis’ agent, did not return phone calls Friday or Monday.
