Ramona Shelburne of ESPN reported on Friday that the Lakers are just playing it safe by giving D’Angelo Russell (sore left knee) the night off on Friday against the Spurs.
That’s great news and ends a bit of uneasiness surrounding Luke Walton’s non-answer when asked about Russell’s injury earlier in the day. We’ll keep you updated as news comes in.
FWIW, DAngelo Russell was walking around lockeroom before the game without a limp. The knee is just sore, so Lakers just being cautious
