What’s the next step for D’Angelo Russell and the Brooklyn Nets

On Saturday, Russell scored 26 points in an eight-point Nets loss to the Jazz, but of primary concern for Brooklyn is the health of their young star point guard.

D'Angelo Russell has come roaring out of the gates during the first four weeks of his first season with the Brooklyn Nets, averaging a career-high 21 points per game. The replay didn't look that bad, but Russell immediately hobbled to the bench, and looked to be in real pain. ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported that Russell was expected to miss 'several games'. The Nets are scheduled to return home Tuesday against the Boston Celtics and host the Golden State Warriors next Sunday.

The Nets acquired Russell in the offseason in what was largely a salary dump by the Los Angeles Lakers.

Trump picks former pharma exec, ex-Bush official to lead HHS department
US President Donald Trump has nominated a former pharmaceutical executive to serve as his next health secretary. When he's pretending to be a populist, Trump has treated the pharmaceutical industry with public disdain.


Russell was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2015 National Basketball Association draft, averaging 14.8 points and 4.1 assists in his two-plus-year National Basketball Association career.

Jeremy Lin's season-ending patella tendon injury, however, already put a strain on the Nets' backcourt depth.

Dinwiddie also sat out Saturday's game with a hamstring injury and, if healthy, would start for Russell.
