After being upgraded from doubtful earlier in the day, D’Angelo Russell indeed suited up for the Nets and posted 15 points in 17 minutes during an ugly loss.
Russell shot 6-of-10 from the field with all of his misses coming from behind the arc, where he shot just 1-of-5. His two rebounds and one assist leave a lot to be desired but we’ll give him a break on a night where so many Nets were straight up bad. Russell should be a safe top-75 play this year given his lead dog role, so hopefully this early injury business is officially behind him.
