D’Angelo Russell (knee) played and scored 16 points on 6-of-13 shooting with five rebounds, five assists and two blocks over 26 minutes in Tuesday’s loss to the Hornets.
This line isn’t so good that it will shut the door on the buy low window. The clock is ticking. We have him rated as a top-50 asset in 8-cat leagues starting in about a week or two and extending through until the end of the season. You can probably get him for a top-75 pick. You will want to bump those evaluations down a round or two in 9-cat leagues.
Here's one slice of positive news: D'Angelo Russel thinks he turned a corner tonight with how his knee felt.
