Monta Ellis 'very doubtful' for Mavericks on Sunday
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|

Mavericks guard Monta Ellis says he finally feels healthy
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(3/25/15) Mavericks guard Monta Ellis has been dealing with a variety of injuries for most of the season, but he said after Tuesday's contest that he's starting to feel healthy, reports ESPNDallas.com.
"I've been battling injuries all season," Ellis said. "The last few days, my body has been feeling good and [Tuesday] I'll sleep real good. I went and worked out [Monday] night for at least two and a half hours. I wanted to come in [Tuesday] and give my team a lift that they have been looking for."
Ellis had one of his best games of the season Tuesday when he scored 38 points on 16-of-27 shooting to help defeat the Spurs.
"Now that my body is feeling good, we'll try to make a run of it until the playoffs start," Ellis said.

Mavericks guard Monta Ellis struggling with shot
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(3/23/15) Mavericks guard Monta Ellis had a rough night Sunday in his team's loss to the Suns, going 4-for-22 from the floor, continuing a recent downward shooting trend, per The Dallas Morning News.
Ellis was 0-for-8 from the floor in the fourth quarter and since the All-Star break, he is shooting just 38.7 percent. But the Mavericks will continue to feed him the ball.
"We got to get shots," coach Rick Carlisle said. "He's the one guy who can get clean shots. He's getting good looks and I always believe he's going to make the next one."
|Playing with one of the most complete teams of his career in Dallas, Monta Ellis seemed to refine his game last season. He took 119 fewer three pointers than the season prior with Milwaukee. His 45.1 field goal percentage was his most efficient mark since 2011. He was still among the league leaders in turnovers per game, but the Mavericks relied heavily on his ball handling -- especially while Devin Harris sat for most of the season. This year he'll have Chandler Parsons to ease some of the playmaking burden. But that shouldn't affect his assists, which hovered in the five-to-six range per game all year. However, it could help him get back over 20 points per game and allow him to conserve energy to shoot passing lanes more for more steals. Guard is deep, but while many might reach early for trendier guys like Kyle Lowry and Goran Dragic you can fill a more shallow position and grab Ellis a round later. He finished slightly behind them in Fantasy points per game, but he has a more proven track record than either.
