Nets’ Russell out several games with knee injury

Nets guard D'Angelo Russell is averaging 20.9 points.

Brooklyn Nets point guard D’Angelo Russell will miss several games with a left knee contusion, according to a report by ESPN.

Russell aggravated his knee Saturday against the Utah Jazz and underwent an MRI. The 21-year-old will undergo further evaluation soon, per ESPN.

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.

The Nets are 5-8 on the year and very shorthanded at the guard position now.

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.

Second-year man Isaiah Whitehead will see extended time now and most likely start at point guard until Russell returns.

  1. Hate to say this, but it helps the Cavs big time… take your time getting better, D’Angelo.
