Wayne Ellington set a career-high in Friday’s 113-101 win with a whopping eight 3-pointers, finishing with 28 points and three rebounds while shooting 10-of-16 in 39 minutes.
The minutes are the key here, and the coaching staff would have to have been crazy to yank Ellington tonight. They’ll come down in the next one for sure but Miami and their rash of injuries will surely give him enough minutes to keep producing. He also tied a career-high with these 28 points and is definitely someone to pick up while the Heat are missing players. Ellington’s 3-point output leaves him perpetually in the picture as a streaming option but he’s been a stunning top-40 value over the past two weeks. Make sure he’s owned.
