Will miss several games with knee injury

Noah Ferguson | 13 November, 2017, 01:11

Nets guard D'Angelo Russell is expected to miss several games with a left knee contusion suffered in Saturday's loss to the Jazz, ESPN reported, citing unidentified league sources.

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 Nets and Lakers trade sending D'Angelo Russell to Brooklyn has, to this point, worked out well for both teams.

The news is the latest injury blow for the Nets, who lost point guard Jeremy Lin for the season with a ruptured patella tendon in the season opener. Isaiah Whitehead, who has been up and down from the G-League multiple times this year, may now be forced into a temporary starting role. 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.

A right knee sprain bothered Russell early in the season, but he only missed one game due to it. He also had another 22-point outing a couple games later while Russell was still struggling.

The vague timetable of Russell missing "several games" invites some skepticism, since knee problems don't just magically go away.
