D’Angelo Russell (left knee soreness) said the knee acted up on him prior to Wednesday’s win vs. the Spurs.
Russell did deal with this same knee earlier in the season missing a few weeks but this smells fishy with the Lakers in tank-mode. It is hard to rely on Russell making it back to active duty for any of the four games left in the Lakers’ season. Look for Tyler Ennis to finish out the season with the ball in his hands quite a bit. He may be a decent flyer if you need a PG as he went for 19 points, 6 assists, 2 steals and 3 threes in his start on Wednesday.
