Los Angeles Lakers guard Wayne Ellington has been ruled out of Tuesday’s season opener against the Golden State Warriors with a hamstring strain.

Lakers guard Kendrick Nunn is being listed as questionable for the opener with an ankle injury, while guard Malik Monk is probable after dealing with a groin issue.

Ellington, 33, is in his 13th NBA season, averaging 8.1 points and 2.2 rebounds for nine separate teams, including the Detroit Pistons last season and the Lakers in 2014-15.

Nunn, 26, is in his first season with the Lakers after he averaged 15.0 points and 3.0 assists for the Miami Heat the past two seasons. Monk, 23, also is in his first season with the Lakers after he averaged 9.1 points and 2.0 rebounds in four seasons with the Charlotte Hornets.
