Monta Ellis makes Warriors All-Time team in NBA 2K18

In this year's version of the popular basketball video game NBA 2K, all 30 teams will have their own All-Time team, putting together the best players from every franchise on one roster

The Warriors' All-Time team in NBA 2K18 includes four current members -- Stephen Curry (96 overall), Klay Thompson (90 overall), Kevin Durant (96 overall), and Draymond Green (89 overall). Check out the complete squad: 

At the very bottom, tied for the lowest-rated Warrior at 86 overall with Latrell Sprewell, is guard Monta Ellis. 

The Now 31-year-old guard spent his first six-and-a-half years with Golden State before being traded to the Milwaukee Bucks during the 2011-12 season, along with Kwame Brown and Ekpe Udoh, for Andrew Bogut and Stephen Jackson. As a Warriors, Ellis averaged 19.6 points and 4.4 assists per game.

Ellis was drafted out of high school with the No. 40 overall pick by the Warriors in the 2005 NBA Draft.

The Warriors have been without Stephen Curry for six full games and all but the first two minutes of a seventh. The last three were less out of medical necessity than an abundance of caution.

Curry could, however, return as soon as Friday when the Atlanta Hawks visit Oracle Arena, multiple sources disclosed to NBC Sports Bay Area on Monday night. ESPN, citing league sources, was first to report the team’s plan.

The two-time MVP’s right ankle is scheduled to be reevaluated Tuesday, after which time a firm return date is expected.

Curry was physically able to play -- and actually pushed to return -- last weekend, according to league sources. But the Warriors, looking ahead to the playoffs and seeing diminished value in the remaining regular-season games, opted to continue rehabilitation in hopes of maximizing support for the area around his ankle.

The Warriors have described Curry’s injury not as a sprain but a “tweak,” implying less severity.

Though the Warriors won the game in which Curry was hurt, 110-107 over the Spurs on March 8, they have since lost four of six, including 89-75 on Monday in San Antonio.

The Warriors arrived early Tuesday morning and won’t practice Tuesday afternoon and are contemplating skipping an official practice on Wednesday.

The Warriors, averaging a league-leading 115.5 points per game this season, saw that figure drop to 103.3 during Curry’s six-game absence.

Already down three All-Stars, the Warriors lost their fourth midway through the first half on Monday night.

With just over nine minutes remaining in the second quarter against the Spurs, Draymond Green took a knee from a driving Danny Green.

Draymond was in immediate pain and left the court for the locker room.

Just before the end of the first half, NBC Sports Bay Area's Kerith Burke reported that Green was ruled out for the rest of the game with a "midsection issue."

Early in the second half, the Warriors diagnosed that Green suffered a pelvic contusion and that x-rays were negative.

The Warriors are currently playing without Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant. All three are dealing with injuries that will keep them out several games.
