D'Angelo Russell dropped 26 points on 10-of-21 shooting, and only adding three boards and three assists to his line in Wednesday's 129-96 blowout loss to the Jazz on Wednesday.
D'Angelo Russell has been the one bright spot for fantasy owners on the Warriors. He is still only a mid-round player on the year, and the Warriors could start to rest their star off-season acquisition down the stretch.

D'Angelo Russell scored 27 points on 9-of-27 shooting to go with eight rebounds, nine assists and five triples on Monday.
Russell continues to be the steady hand for a Warriors team that's full of injuries and new rotation players on a nightly basis. There's the threat of him resting down the stretch, but the Warriors are so bad even with him that they don't really need to. Plus, the team wants to see what he and Steph Curry look like playing alongside each other.

D'Angelo Russell double-doubled on Saturday with 26 points on 9-of-21 shooting to go with 12 assists, two steals and four triples.
Russell has only shot 40 percent in his four games since returning from his shoulder injury, but he's fine everywhere else with averages of 23.0 points, 8.3 assists and 3.8 threes. Russell should post mid-round value moving forward and doesn't have too much risk of resting down the stretch like Draymond Green.

D'Angelo Russell scored 19 points on 6-of-18 shooting to go with three boards, nine dimes, three steals and six triples in Thursday's 131-134 loss to the Nuggets.
Russel's shooting was off, but it's a good thing that all six of his made field goals were triples. The game-high nine assists also help boost his line and even though he'll be dinged up here and there, the Warriors don't risk much by playing him so there's not too much to worry about here.

Shams Charania of The Athletic is reporting that the Wolves are intensifying their pursuit of D'Angelo Russell.
To this point, the Warriors have been inclined to keep Russell, though the Wolves have had obvious and reported interest in the guard dating back to last summer. His shooting and playmaking would be a big lift to a Minnesota team that's looking to find complements for Karl-Anthony Towns, though Golden State may wait until the summer when they can trade Russell without being hard-capped. Expect the Wolves to be a popular name during trade season.

D'Angelo Russell had a rough shooting night on Tuesday, hitting just 5-of-17 field goals in a 13-point, three-rebound, eight-assist performance in 34 minutes of a sizable loss to the Mavs.
This was Russell's second game back from injury with the previous game resulting in a spectacular stat line. The two-game sample is a good reminder of the inconsistency Russell will likely show on this depleted team.

D'Angelo Russell returned from a six-game absence (right shoulder contusion) on Sunday and picked up where he left off with 34 points, seven rebounds, four assists and five 3-pointers.
Russell shot 12-of-24 from the field and logged a team-high 35 minutes, so there didn't look to be any rust. D'Lo's putting up insane numbers for a truly terrible team (it's surprising he played this much considering they were down by 19 after three quarters), but numbers are numbers.

D'Angelo Russell (right shoulder bruise) is available to play during Sunday's game versus the Grizzlies.
Russell looks to good to go, but there is no word if he will be on any sort of restriction. Plug him in for season long leagues, but proceed with caution in DFS. Ky Bowman will likely be relegated back to the G League soon enough.

D'Angelo Russell (bruised right shoulder) is probable to play for the Warriors on Sunday.
Finally. It looks like Russell is nearing a return. Given that the Warriors are a value wasteland right now, expect Russell to splash in with a big game from the get-go.
January 10, 2020, 2:44 pmKy BowmanPG, Golden State Warriors
Ky Bowman will play in Friday's game vs. the Clippers but will likely head to their G League affiliate afterwards and will not play in Sunday's game against the Grizzlies.
Bowman is still on a two-way contract and his days of eligibility are coming to an end for this season. It is unclear if the Warriors will clear a roster spot to sign Bowman to a long-term contract like they did with Damion Lee. However, with D'Angelo Russell (shoulder) expected to play Sunday, Bowman might see his last NBA action until the Warriors deal with an injury to a backcourt player.

D'Angelo Russell will not play against the Clippers on Friday due to a bruised right shoulder but is expected to return on Sunday against the Grizzlies.
Russell will miss his sixth consecutive contest on Friday and he has only played in 22 of the Warriors' first 40 games of the season. D'Angelo is expected to return Sunday vs. the Grizzlies. Expect Draymond Green, Alec Burks and Ky Bowman to do the most of the ball-handling on Friday night with Russell out.

D'Angelo Russell (right shoulder contusion) is questionable for Friday's game after going through Thursday's practice.
There was hope that D'Lo could play on Wednesday after practicing on Tuesday, but no dice. He'll be good to get into all lineups as soon as he's cleared to return, but any name-brand Warrior is a sell-high candidate given the way the season has unfolded. Ky Bowman will move back to the bench when the natural order is restored.

D'Angelo Russell (right shoulder contusion) is being listed as out for Wednesday's game against the Bucks despite practicing on Tuesday.
Russell seemed on the verge of making a return after practicing on Tuesday, but the team will take the cautious approach and hold him out another game. Ky Bowman and Alec Burks will see extra run once again. Russell's next opportunity to return is on Friday against the Clippers.

D'Angelo Russell (right shoulder contusion) practiced on Tuesday, but his status is still undecided for Wednesday's game against the Bucks.
Russell is getting closer to a return and would be inserted back into the starting unit if he can go. As with Draymond Green, the risk of being shut down or missing various games down the stretch is evident, but as long as he is out there, Russell needs to be in all lineups. Ky Bowman and Alec Burks would get extra run if Russell can't go on Wednesday.

D'Angelo Russell (right shoulder contusion) is being listed as out for Monday's game versus the Kings.
the team was initially optimistic that he would be able to play, but it must have been bothered during Sunday's practice. Ky Bowman could draw another start or the Warriors could opt to go with Alec Burks for more of a scoring punch.
