OAKLAND, Calif. -- Golden State guard Monta Ellis missed the Warriors' game Saturday night against the Detroit Pistons because of a sore back.

Ellis, sidelined for sixth game this season, leads the Warriors in scoring at 25.7 points per game. The injury left the Warriors with only eight healthy players.

Chris Wilcox was inactive for the Pistons, also because of a sore back.
