Monta Ellis — the second best player in the NBA if you ask Monta Ellis — will miss tonight and is not with the Warriors as they start a four-game road trip.
The information comes from CSN’s Matt Steinmetz traveling with the team. Monta has had a case of the flu.
Whether or not he recovers and catches up with the team on this trip remains to be seen. There’s no real reason to rush him back, other than to help Don Nelson in the record chase.
