D'Angelo Russell Will Reportedly Miss 'Several Games' With A Knee Injury

D'Angelo Russell Will Reportedly Miss 'Several Games' With A Knee Injury

The Brooklyn Nets will be without star point guard D'Angelo Russell for the foreseeable future after he hurt his left knee in the Nets' 114-106 loss to the Utah Jazz.

Russell suffered the injury in a loss in Utah on Saturday night and traveled back to NY with the team to undergo an MRI on Sunday.

The former Los Angeles Lakers draft pick was traded in te off-season with Timofey Mozgov to the Nets for Brook Lopez and Kyle Kuzma. For now, however, he can be considered out for both Tuesday's game against the Celtics and Friday's game against the Jazz. In the season opener, Jeremy Lin tore the patella tendon in his right knee and underwent season-ending surgery.

He's averaging 20.9 points, 5.7 assists, 4.7 rebounds and one steal per contest.

Russell missed Brooklyn's win over Cleveland on October 25 with a right knee sprain and Spencer Dinwiddie scored 22 points in his place. Since they only play four games between now and Thanksgiving, it wouldn't be shocking if those are the only games Russell misses if rest is all he needs.
