If you saw the fall, you had to think Monta Ellis was not coming back this season.

Now it’s official, according to CSN Bay Area.

Ellis spent last night in a Bay Area Hospital for observations after suffering a Grade 2 concussion and was released earlier this morning. A CT Scan was negative.

Ellis will not play in the final two games of the season tonight in Denver and Wednesday vs. Portland.

A Grade II concussion means the person never lost consciousness but suffered symptoms of confusion for more than 15 minutes after the incident. Usually this means a person is restricted from physical activity for a couple weeks and can return only with a doctor’s approval.

    That picture is a little creep guys. I hate seeing people like that, gives me the willies. It’s hard to feel sorry for a rich man a lot of the times, but these kind of injuries are an exception. I hope the dude is alright.
