Ellis, Biedrins don't make trip for Warriors
The Golden State Warriors say leading scorer Monta Ellis and center Andris Biedrins are not joining the team on an East Coast trip because of injuries.
Ellis is scheduled to have an MRI on his sore back Monday. He did not accompany the team to Miami, where the Warriors begin a five-game trip Tuesday. Ellis already missed a game last Saturday. His status for the rest of the trip will be determined later Monday or Tuesday.
The team says Biedrins, who has a sports hernia, will miss the entire trip. He is schedule to be examined in Philadelphia next Monday by a specialist. He left Saturday's game against Detroit with the injury and did not return.
The Warriors have the third worst record in the NBA at 17-41.
