D'Angelo Russell News
Los Angeles Lakers guard D'Angelo Russell (knee) will play on Friday night versus the New Orleans Pelicans. The 27-year-old didn't suit up on Thursday against the Denver Nuggets because of left knee soreness. However, he's good to go. Russell was quiet to begin the 2023-24 campaign. But he averaged 22.7 points and shot 45.9% from deep in January. While the veteran has always been a must-start, his fantasy ceiling is higher now than it's been all season.
The Los Angeles Lakers aren't listing guard D'Angelo Russell (undisclosed) on their injury report for Thursday's meeting with the Denver Nuggets. Head coach Darvin Ham said on Wednesday that Russell was unable to practice after he received "tune-up" treatment, casting doubt on the guard's status, but Russell is good to go on Thursday. Though his name was swirling around trade rumors ahead of Thursday's deadline, Russell's recent hot streak may have driven up his stock to a point where the Lakers couldn't find any suitors for their asking price. Over his last 14 games, DLo is putting up 23.6 points, 6.5 assists, 4.1 threes on 46.3% shooting from deep, and 0.9 steals per contest. Although Russell is a must-start in season-long fantasy leagues right now, Thursday's matchup versus a Nuggets team yielding the fourth-fewest points per game (110.6) this season is a shy-away one for DFS purposes.
Los Angeles Lakers guard D'Angelo Russell (illness), who was not seen at the morning shootaround, is questionable for Monday's Martin Luther King Jr. Day showdown versus the Oklahoma City Thunder. The Lakers say Russell will be re-evaluated pregame. If Russell's non-COVID illness prevents him from suiting up on Monday, it would be a tough break after he exploded for a season-high 39 points and six three-pointers with eight assists without LeBron James (ankle) in his return to the starting group during Saturday's road loss to the Utah Jazz following a seven-game period with the second unit. With James and Anthony Davis (ankle) also iffy to play, Austin Reaves might be particularly busy on Monday based on which of L.A.'s stars are available. Max Christie would also pick up additional minutes if Russell cannot give it a go.
Los Angeles Lakers point guard D'Angelo Russell (knee) is listed as questionable for Saturday's visit to Salt Lake City to face the Jazz. He has landed on the injury report with right knee contusion. Russell only just returned from a tailbone issue, but it looks like he could be back on the shelf Saturday night. He's had an awful time in L.A. this season, although Russell has shown signs of improvement in his most recent outings, averaging 14.3 points and 5.7 assists off the bench in three games since returning to action. Recent acquisition Skylar Mays could break into the rotation without Russell on Saturday.
