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.
