    Default Monta Ellis Lied

    The saga surrounding the left ankle of Warriors guard Monta Ellis has taken a step toward a conclusion. The Contra Costa Times has learned that Ellis has admitted to the Warriors that he wasn't truthful about how he hurt his ankle, and the two sides are in talks about how to put the situation behind them.

    According to a team source, the Warriors now know that Ellis' ankle injury _ which was repaired during surgery on Aug. 27 _ was not sustained "in a gym," and "it happened out doors and not while playing basketball."

    The source did not reveal what Ellis told Warriors management he was doing when he got hurt, only that he "was scared to tell the truth at first," but eventually did.

    At first, Ellis told the team he was working out in Jackson, Miss., when he injured his ankle on Aug. 21, tearing a deltoid ligament and suffering a severe high ankle sprain. But he has been in regular communication with Chris Mullin, the executive vice president of basketball operations, with whom Ellis has a close relationship.

    The team can fine and/or suspend Ellis if he injured his ankle by participating in a prohibited activity, such as motorcycle riding or snowboarding. Should he somehow not be able to play again, the Warriors could terminate the six-year, $66 million contract they signed Ellis to in July.

    Ellis will be out for a minimum of three months.

    I wonder what he was doing? I wish Tinsley would pull something like this so we could void his contract.

    I'm willing to bet he didn't fall down the stairs carrying meat.

    I became friends with Monta at a basketball camp we were both at. I haven't talked to him in probably about a year now, but I'll see if I can get the low-down on this.

    It's not the 1st time an NBA player has gotten hurt and lied to his team about how the injury occurred. A few years ago Vladimir Radmanovic got hurt and lied to the Lakers how the accident happened. He got caught in his lie as well.

    If Honesty is the best policy, then by process of elimination that makes dishonesty the second best policy.
