Originally thought to miss Friday’s game, D’Angelo Russell has been upgraded to questionable for Brooklyn’s matchup with the Knicks.
Russell’s injury came more or less out of nowhere and he wasn’t expected to be out for long. Perhaps he’ll make a return ahead of schedule tonight. While he might not play full minutes, in part thanks to the strong play of the Nets’ depth in his absence, you’d have to get Russell into lineups for a tasty matchup with the woeful Knicks. The Nets should give another update on his status later today.
