The Golden State Warriors may have spent $66 million buying into Monta Ellis, but that doesn't mean they're buying into his story of how he injured his ankle.
The Warriors have not been told the exact cause of injury -- "I was told he was working out in Jackson," GM Chris Mullin told the media -- and have sent their athletic trainer Tom Abdenour to check out Ellis in Mississippi.
If Ellis' injury proves to be legit and he actually suffered the injury during a workout, the Warriors will have to cut their losses for at least the next three months. But if this extensive injury was sustained during, let's say, a pick up game, Ellis could lose his contract or even his spot on the team.
Ellis has nearly $70 million worth of explaining to do.

Damn. All he needs is his trainer, or whoever he works out with, to say they were working out. I doubt anything will come of this.
your most likely right, but how ever it would be interesting if Warriors investigation find out Monta was faking and see that team spilt up.
