D'Angelo Russell to Miss Several Games with Knee Injury

  • What’s the next step for D’Angelo Russell and the Brooklyn Nets

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 Brooklyn Nets' point guard problems have just gotten pretty serious.

The lefty guard injured his knee late in the Nets' loss to the Utah Jazz on Saturday night, and while he still needs to undergo further evaluation, he will reportedly miss a few games.

The injury occurred as Russell drove to the basket and tried to pull up with three minutes remaining.

Before the Nets announced the injury, ESPN reported Russell will miss "several games". Russell grimaced as he hobbled to the bench. The 2015 No. 2 overall pick averaged 15.6 points and 4.8 assists per game and shot 35.2 percent from three-point range. In the season opener, Jeremy Lin tore the patella tendon in his right knee and underwent season-ending surgery.

The absence of Russell and Dinwiddie likely leaves reserves Isaiah Whitehead and Caris Levert to log starting point guard duties. The Nets are scheduled to return home Tuesday against the Boston Celtics and host the Golden State Warriors next Sunday.
