Monta Ellis tagged with five game suspension

Monta Ellis has been suspended for the five games of the 2017-2018 NBA season after a failed drug test. Ellis is on the hook for $11 plus million this season but the Pacers are determined to upgrade the roster. Ellis scored only 8.5 points per game this past season so he will look to bounce back.

Fantasy Impact:

Ellis was one of the bigger disappointments last season as a mid-late draft pick. Leave Ellis on the waiver wire at this point in re-draft leagues. Lance Stephenson is the Pacer role player to keep an eye on.
