Mar. 23 6:44 PM PT7:44 PM MT8:44 PM CT9:44 PM ET1:44 GMT9:44 6:44 PM MST8:44 PM EST5:44 UAE (+1)02:4421:44 ET7:44 PM CTNaN:� - Wayne Ellington did not score Thursday, going 0 of 2 from the field, as the Miami Heat lost to the Toronto Raptors 101-84.

Analysis: Ellington has now sunk three or more 3-pointers in nine of his last 11 games. The perimeter threat is 40 of 89 (44.9 percent) on triple attempts while averaging 13.4 points during that time frame.
Mar. 19 5:03 PM PT6:03 PM MT7:03 PM CT8:03 PM ET0:03 GMT8:03 5:03 PM MST7:03 PM EST4:03 UAE (+1)01:0320:03 ET6:03 PM CTNaN:� - Wayne Ellington scored nine points Sunday, going 3 of 10 from the field, as the Miami Heat lost to the Portland Trail Blazers 115-104.

Analysis: Ellington's lone fantasy strength is his ability to make 3-pointers, something he's done with regularity this month. The reserve guard is 37 of 83 (44.6 percent) on trey attempts in the Heat's 10 games in March.
Mar. 17 7:57 PM PT8:57 PM MT9:57 PM CT10:57 PM ET2:57 GMT10:57 7:57 PM MST9:57 PM EST6:57 UAE (+1)03:5722:57 ET8:57 PM CTNaN:� - Wayne Ellington scored seven points Friday, going 3 of 8 from the field, as the Miami Heat topped the Minnesota Timberwolves 123-105.

Ellington grabbed two rebounds and added an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -2 in his 21:49 on the floor. He added one steal. Ellington went 5 of 8 from behind the arc.
Analysis: It was Ellington's second straight 19-point performance after he shot 7 of 13 overall and 5 of 11 from 3 on Sunday at Indiana. Ellington is averaging 15 points over the last eight games while shooting 51.9 percent from the field and 33 of 67 from deep.

Analysis: Though not an asset in any other category, Ellington continues to be a good source of 3-pointers of late. The journeyman guard is 23 of 48 (47.9 percent) on trey attempts over a six-game stretch in which he's averaged 13.7 points.
Mar. 8 6:04 PM PT7:04 PM MT8:04 PM CT9:04 PM ET2:04 GMT10:04 7:04 PM MST9:04 PM EST6:04 UAE (+1)03:0421:04 ET8:04 PM CTNaN:� - Wayne Ellington scored nine points Wednesday on 3-of-10 shooting as the Miami Heat defeated the Charlotte Hornets 108-101.

Analysis: Ellington has been on fire since the start of the month, draining 17 of 32 tries from 3-point range in Miami's four March games.

Mar. 4 7:54 PM PT8:54 PM MT9:54 PM CT10:54 PM ET3:54 GMT11:54 8:54 PM MST10:54 PM EST7:54 UAE (+1)04:5422:54 ET9:54 PM CTNaN:� - Wayne Ellington scored 12 points Saturday, going 4 of 9 from the field, as the Miami Heat defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers 120-92.

Analysis: Ellington has totaled 32 points off the bench in the last two games.
Mar. 1 7:11 PM PT8:11 PM MT9:11 PM CT10:11 PM ET3:11 GMT11:11 8:11 PM MST10:11 PM EST7:11 UAE (+1)04:1122:11 ET9:11 PM CTNaN:� - Wayne Ellington scored 18 points Wednesday, going 6 of 9 from 3-point range, as the Miami Heat topped the Philadelphia 76ers 125-98.

Analysis: The journeyman guard could be worth an add to a fantasy roster in need of a cheap source of treys, as he's 27 of 64 (42.2 percent) from beyond the arc over his last nine games. Ellington's production can run hot and cold, though, so there's some risk involved.
Jan. 28 6:14 PM PT7:14 PM MT8:14 PM CT9:14 PM ET2:14 GMT10:14 7:14 PM MST9:14 PM EST6:14 UAE (+1)03:1421:14 ET8:14 PM CTNaN:� - Ellington was in double figures for the third consecutive game with 19 points on 7-of-10 shooting - 5 of 7 from 3-point range - Saturday against Detroit.
Analysis: Ellington has averaged 18.3 points and gone 11 for 22 from downtown in his last three games. Ellington has helped fill the void left by Tyler Johnson and Josh Richardson, but his playing time likely will decrease when those two return.
Jan. 25 7:21 PM PT8:21 PM MT9:21 PM CT10:21 PM ET3:21 GMT11:21 8:21 PM MST10:21 PM EST7:21 UAE (+1)04:2122:21 ET9:21 PM CTNaN:� - Ellington had 22 points in Wednesday's 109-106 win over the Nets.

Jan. 17 7:21 PM PT8:21 PM MT9:21 PM CT10:21 PM ET3:21 GMT11:21 8:21 PM MST10:21 PM EST7:21 UAE (+1)04:2122:21 ET9:21 PM CTNaN:� - Ellington scored 18 off the bench and the Heat overcame another triple-double from James Harden to beat the Rockets 109-103 on Tuesday night.

The shooting guard who won an NCAA title at North Carolina and was Most Outstanding Player of the Final Four in 2009 spent his first three years in Minnesota and has been on the move often since, playing for Memphis, Cleveland, Dallas, the Los Angeles Lakers and Brooklyn.
