No Monta Ellis tonight vs. Kings
The Warriors just sent out a release with details of second opinion on Monta Ellis’ injured left knee from Dr. James Andrews, the surgeon who originally fixed Ellis’ ACL tear in that knee as a high schooler. The release says that Andrews confirmed the team’s original diagnosis of a sprained knee. Ellis won’t play tonight against the Sacramento Kings but will be listed as day-to-day after that.
The upshot? Well, it’s interesting that Ellis feels the need to seek out a second opinion, since that would seem to potentially indicate he’s still having trouble with the knee, even after nine days of rest. (Rest from the team, at least. Who knows how that fishing trip went?)
It also means Stephen Curry will have every chance to press his case in the Rookie of the Year race in tonight against front-runner Tyreke Evans.

*Monta* is the one who needed a second opinion? Geoff don’t you think this has to do with the Warriors sending out a signal to the League that Monta is healthy and available, for the right pieces?
I was @ the game tonight (2/17) & what I personally saw was our ROY Curry barely miss (again for 2nd consecutive game) a triple-double by 3-4 rebounds… While Evans barely broke double-digits for points only! No question, Curry makes others better. Which may not be as sexy as scoring 55 ala Jennings-but making others better IS way more important-just ask M. Jordan.
also, sidenote, who does D. George think he is by hitting 5 straight 3’s & playing well tonight? Does he think it’s 1998 or something!?
btw, love reading ur work & the others who contribute here.
Geoff: Starting to get it re Curry yet?
That’s two in a row where the kid has just suffocated Tyreke — and Evans is gonna be a star, for sure. And 15 dimes is second only to Tim Hardaway’s 16 as a W rook.
The kid is super special. Too bad the beats don’t seem to get it. Yet.
Tyreke Evans is too one dimensional. Hes not much better than an Andre Miller type player. too much hype…
How ’bout now, Geoff? Curry getting to you yet?
BEST NEWS EVER. ok, 2nd best. starting Monday, Damon Bruce noon-4 on KNBR 1050 opposite the 2 stooges. guess Lee Hammer’d had enough of the other talent constantly referring to things they’d heard on Dan Patrick’s show each day.
let’s erase the ratings excuse.

No, the best news is Corey Maggette is out for at least 8 games. I may actually be able to watch this team for a while again.
no, the best news comes from CC’s twitter today:
“Official #gsw #warriors #nba announcement: I’m quitting the Warriors as soon as Ellis and/or Biedrins are traded.”
that should get everyone off the fence on the issue. it’s too bad, i really like Biedrins.

3 seasons in a row Geoff you quit before it’s over???
Helllllo! Anybody there?
Boy, you missed another great one from Kid Curry last night. Hope you’ve been watching, Geoff.
jsl, in case you missed it, Geoff let us know a few weeks back that he’d been hired by NBA.com to write the Warriors’ home game recaps. therefore, only live chats on the road. Geoff’s been in attendance at home games doing his paying gig.

So we’ll only get to read Geoff’s commentary here in blowout losses then? That’s great. Well actually, his sarcasm would be a lot less effective in wins anyway, probably for the best.
Derek: Thanks for the info.
So, to cover Geoff in his absence, and apropos of this column’s head, here’s our new story:
