Past Season Summaries
2016

Henry Ellenson was 19 when he began his rookie season with the Detroit Pistons. The first round pick appeared in 19 games in 2016-17 with the club, which included two starts. He also participated in 21 contests with the D-League Grand Rapids Drive. Ellenson made his NBA debut on Oct. 26 and grabbed two boards during a loss at Toronto. He spent the majority of October and November with the Pistons, seeing action in five games while battling an ankle injury. In December, Ellenson played a significant role for the Drive while also appearing in six Pistons' contests. On Dec. 17, he'd score six points from two three-pointers in a loss to the Pacers. Ellenson would see significant run in Detroit's last four games, generating per game averages of 9.8 points, 7.3 boards and 1.5 made three-pointers in 22 minutes. His D-League stats proved to be encouraging. Over those 21 games, he averaged 17.9 points, 8.9 rebounds and 1.8 made threes from 35 minutes.

2017

The 2017-18 season marked Henry Ellenson's second season in the Association. Relative to his rookie season, the big power forward spent more time at the NBA level. Ellenson would appear in 38 games for the Pistons, supplemented by two contests with the G League Grand Rapids Drive. In October, the 20-year-old participated in five of Detroit's eight contests. On Oct. 25, he delivered 14 points, five boards and dropped two threes in a victory over the T-Wolves. In November, he'd produce two dominant games in the G League, highlighted by a 31-point, 10-rebound effort on Nov. 21 versus the Blue. From late November through mid-March, Ellenson would stick with the Pistons. Then, Ellenson saw significant run over Detroit's last eight games and averaged 9.8 points, 4.1 boards and 1.3 made treys during that stretch. On Apr. 8, Ellenson exploded for a career-high 17 points in a loss at Memphis. On the year, Ellenson delivered 4.0 points, 2.1 boards and 0.5 made three-pointers per contest for the Pistons.

2018

Henry Ellenson started the 2018-19 season much like the 2017-18 season, by garnishing appearances with both the Detroit Pistons and the G League Grand Rapids Drive. On Oct. 27, the center made his season debut with the Pistons, scoring seven points in eight minutes versus Boston. On Oct. 31, Ellenson had his fourth-year contract option with the Pistons declined. Three days later he was assigned to the Drive and appeared in six G League games for Grand Rapids, averaging 19.7 points and 11.8 rebounds per contest. He then played in one more game for Detroit, receiving 17 minutes of run in a Dec. 10 loss to Philadelphia. After two more games with the Drive, Ellenson was waived by the Pistons on Feb. 9. On Feb. 20, the center signed a 10-day contract with the New York Knicks. That led to a multi-year agreement with the Knicks roughly two weeks later. For the season, Ellenson appeared in 19 NBA games for the Pistons and Knicks, averaging 6.0 points, 3.5 rebounds and 0.9 made threes in 14 minutes per contest.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2017
2016
Ellenson was plastered to the bench once again during his second NBA season. The 6-foot-11 big man saw action in just 38 games and averaged 4.0 points and 2.1 rebounds across 8.7 minutes. Even with Jon Leuer going down for the season with an ankle injury, Ellenson still found himself buried on the depth chart. Looking ahead to the upcoming campaign, Leuer is back to full strength and is likely going to serve as Blake Griffin's backup at power forward. Zaza Pachulia was also brought in to backup Andre Drummond at center, so at best, Ellenson will be third on the depth chart at either of those positions. Barring an in-season roster blow-up or an effort to tank and get a look at some of the younger talent on the roster, Ellenson will likely be outside the rotation for much of the 2018-19 season.
Ellenson's rookie campaign was spent in a developmental capacity, as the former 18th overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft was largely limited to the team's G-League affiliate. He started 21 games for the Grand Rapids Drive and showed plenty of promise with averages of 17.9 points, 8.9 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.8 three-pointers across 35.2 games. However, despite being tabbed as a floor spacing power forward coming out of college, Ellenson did shoot just 32.8 percent from the three-point line, which was a disappointment overall. Looking ahead to the 2017-18 season, Ellenson appears to be in line for much of the same. Tobias Harris and Jon Leuer are going to have first rights to the power forward minutes, while the Pistons also brought in Anthony Tolliver during free agency. That means Ellenson will be the third option at best and could fall to fourth on the depth chart if the Pistons like Tolliver's experience over Ellenson's upside. Look for him to remain outside the rotation for the bulk of the season and he could drop down to the G-League again to aid in his development.
After pulling the plug on Ersan Ilyasova in the middle of last season, the Pistons found a new potential stretch four option in the frontcourt with Ellenson, the 18th overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft. At 6-foot-11 and with a picturesque shooting stroke, Ellenson looks the part of the NBA's modern power forward, but his actual production from three-point range disappointed during his lone season at Marquette. While attempting 3.2 three-point shots per game, Ellenson converted on just 28.8 percent of those looks, and doesn't project to make a major impact in that department as a rookie. And though Ellenson isn't a liability on the defensive end, he's not a difference maker either, which may hurt his case for seeing major court time as a rookie. With Tobias Harris locked in as the starting power forward and free-agent pickup Jon Leuer ranking as his top backup, it's quite likely Ellenson will open his NBA career outside of coach Stan Van Gundy's rotation. If he shows further refinement with his touch from long distance across practices, his limited minutes in games with the Pistons and stints in the D-League, Ellenson could eventually become a fixture in the starting five, but that's not likely to happen in his first two NBA seasons. As such, Ellenson remains a name worth tracking in deeper dynasty leagues, but those in single-season formats can probably ignore him.
