D’Angelo Russell will make his return to the Nets lineup Friday night against the Heat.
Russell missed just over two months of action after having arthroscopic surgery on his knee. Russell says he’s not on a minutes restriction, but we can’t imagine him seeing any more than his current 27.8 mpg on the season. The biggest question facing the Nets is how he and Spencer Dinwiddie coexist in the Nets backcourt after Dinwiddie did an admirable job as Russell’s replacement. Russell was on his way to setting career-bests in ppg, apg, and fg% before his injury. He’s safe to get back into lineups across all leagues.
