I kind of feel sorry for the Warriors now, first they lose Baron and now they will lose Monta for a few months especially after they just signed for for so much...

The Golden State Warriors won't have Baron Davis or Monta Ellis in their starting lineup on opening night.

In the latest blow during a difficult summer for Golden State, Ellis -- just awarded one of the biggest pay raises in league history -- will be sidelined at least three months, possibly four, after suffering a severe high ankle sprain in his hometown of Jackson, Miss.

Ellis underwent surgery Wednesday to repair a torn deltoid ligament in his left ankle, after he informed the club late last week that he had injured himself working out. More specifics about how Ellis sustained the injury were not immediately available.

The team confirmed the injury Wednesday afternoon.

Ellis' ankle will be immobilized for six weeks, followed by at least six weeks of off-court rehab before the guard can return to basketball workouts.

Ellis will miss training camp and the Warriors' preseason schedule, which includes a trip to China, along with at least the first month of the regular season.

Ellis was unavailable for comment Wednesday, and his agent, Jeff Fried, could not immediately be reached.

It was less than a month ago that Ellis received a six-year, $66 million contract extension from the Warriors, whose tumultuous offseason began with Davis making a verbal commitment to sign with the Los Angeles Clippers on the very first day of free agency.

That really sucks. It's going to be a rat race in the west for playoff spots, and even one chink in the chain can ruin it for them. I'm fairly sure the Warriors would've made the playoffs last year had Capt. Jack not been injured those first 6-7 games.

That's unfortunate for them but they're not making the playoffs either way.
