Russell has played in five of the last six games and averaged 18 minutes per game. This should slowly go up as the season progresses. Key word is “slowly” since the Nets have no incentive to rush him back to heavy minutes. Spencer Dinwiddie has taken over the starting point guard gig, but Russell should have the two spot by seasons end. For now owners will have to stomach mediocre stats.
Update: D’Angelo Russell will be available to play against the Sixers.
