Miami Heat guard Wayne Ellington hasn’t seen much action recently, logging three consecutive DNPs since he logged only 14 minutes of action back on December 12th during Miami’s loss to the Utah Jazz.

Ellington, who is fresh off a historic 2017-2018 campaign in which he set a new Heat franchise record for most three pointers made during a season, is staying positive and working hard during his benching.
