D’Angelo Russell left Tuesday’s game against the Grizzlies due to a bruised left shin and is already being called questionable for Wednesday’s game against the Suns.
Russell hit 5-of-10 shots for 11 points, two boards and one steal in 22 minutes so this is not a great start to his four-game week, obviously. If you squint you can see some issues for Russell down the stretch with next week being a three-game week, and the following four-game week starting to coincide with the Kobe Bryant Farewell Tour. There is too much top-50 upside here for owners to drop him just yet and in particular because of this injury with what we know now. A slowdown is just a mild concern at this point.
