Russell recorded 23 points (7-13 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 7-7 FT), five rebounds, 10 assists and one steal over 31 minutes during Sunday's 136-125 win over the Nets. Russell dropped 31 points in Wednesday's loss to Atlanta, and he remained productive on the scoreboard Sunday while posting his first double-double since Jan. 11. While the 25-year-old had a lackluster stat line in his first appearance following his five-game absence in late December and early January, he's been a reliable fantasy contributor since then.
Russell scored 31 points (10-18 FG, 5-13 3Pt, 6-9 FT) while adding five assists, two rebounds, two steals and a block in 35 minutes during Wednesday's 134-122 loss to the Hawks. He wound up leading the Timberwolves in scoring and helped the team jump out to a 42-26 lead after the first quarter, but when Patrick Beverley left with an ankle injury after only six minutes and then Anthony Edwards got himself ejected in the third quarter, Minnesota saw the win slip through its fingers. Russell has topped 20 points in four of the last seven games, averaging 21.6 points, 8.4 assists, 4.0 threes, 2.4 boards and 1.3 steals over that stretch.
Russell notched 29 points (11-19 FG, 6-11 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds, six assists and one block in 35 minutes before fouling out of Thursday's 116-108 loss to the Grizzlies. Russell scored at least 20 points for the third time in his last four games and is shooting 54.3 percent from three during those contests. For most of the season, he's deferred to Karl-Anthony Towns and Anthony Edwards, but the Timberwolves will need all three of their stars clicking if they want to reach their full potential. On Sunday, Russell will look to stay hot against the Warriors -- his former team.
Russell contributed 22 points (8-14 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five rebounds, 10 assists and one steal across 33 minutes during Sunday's 141-123 win over Houston. Russell had a limited impact in his return to the court Wednesday against Oklahoma City, but he's now posted double-doubles in back-to-back games. Although he went to the locker room late in Sunday's matchup, he quickly returned to the bench area. In his three appearances since returning from the health and safety protocols, the 25-year-old has averaged 18.3 points and 8.3 assists in 31.3 minutes per game.
Russell produced 27 points (11-12 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), one rebound, 12 assists and two steals in 31 minutes during Friday's 135-105 win over Oklahoma City. Russell returned from a five-game absence Wednesday due to COVID-19 protocols and struggled offensively. However, he bounced back in a big way Friday, missing just one shot en route to his 13th game with at least 20 points. He also dished out 12 assists, notching his sixth double-double of the year. Despite the uber shooting performance, Russell is still shooting a career-low 39.3 percent from the field this season.
