Nets’ Russell has surgery on knee; no timetable for return

Nets guard D'Angelo Russell is averaging 20.9 points.

Brooklyn Nets point guard D’Angelo Russell underwent arthroscopic left knee surgery today to remove loose bodies, the team announced.

Russell aggravated his knee last Saturday against the Utah Jazz and hasn’t played since.

Russell, in his first season with the Nets, is averaging 20.9 points, 5.7 assists and 4.7 rebounds per game while shooting 46.3 percent overall and 29.5 percent beyond the arc.

On top of Russell being injured, Jeremy Lin is out for the season with a ruptured patellar tendon and Spencer Dinwiddie is dealing with tightness in his right hamstring.
