Top D'Angelo Russell News

  • Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Comes close to double-double

    Russell registered 12 points (4-10 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-3 FT), two rebounds, eight assists and two steals across 39 minutes during Tuesday's 111-109 loss to the Grizzlies.

    Russell might have ended two assists away from posting a double-double, but he needs to take a bigger role on offense since he only attempted 10 shots -- that's a meager amount for someone who should be the third scoring option behind Karl-Anthony Towns and Anthony Edwards. He hasn't scored more than 12 points in four of the five games in the series, but what's even more concerning is the fact that he has just 32.3 percent from the field in that span.

  • Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Leading scorer in Thursday's loss

    Russell closed with 22 points (9-21 FG, 4-8 3Pt), five rebounds, eight assists and one steal in 39 minutes during Thursday's 104-95 loss to Memphis.

    He led the Timberwolves in scoring on a night in which they blew a 26-point lead. Russell had managed only 21 points combined through the first two games in the series, but he may need to continue carrying a bigger scoring load if Karl-Anthony Towns' struggles on the offensive end continue.

  • Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Delivers 29 points in victory

    Russell supplied 29 points (10-18 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 6-8 FT), five rebounds, six assists and three steals over 37 minutes during Tuesday's 109-104 win over the Clippers.

    The Timberwolves needed big nights from Russell and Anthony Edwards to best the Clippers, and both guards delivered on a night where Karl-Anthony Towns failed to contribute his usual production. Russell suffered through a rough couple of weeks where his shots weren't landing, and he then missed two games due to a non-COVID illness. His 29-point effort in the win was his best scoring total since late February, an encouraging sign that he's heating up once again.

  • Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Removed from injury report

    Russell (illness) is not listed on the Timberwolves' injury report ahead of Tuesday's play-in matchup against the Clippers.

    This is obviously great news for the Wolves, who were without Russell for the final two games of the regular season while he battled a non-COVID illness. As a result, Russell may have some minor rust to shake off heading into Tuesday night, but the expectation is that he'll return to his usual high-minute role in the backcourt alongside Patrick Beverley. Russell had an up-and-down finish to the regular season, averaging 14.1 points, 6.7 assists, 2.9 rebounds and 1.7 threes per game over his final 10 appearances. He shot just 37.0 percent from the field and 26.6 percent from three during that stretch, however.

  • Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Ruled out for finale

    Russell (illness) will not play Sunday against the Bulls, Wolves radio voice Alan Horton reports.

    Russell is still battling the non-COVID illness that kept him out of practice Saturday afternoon. With nothing on the line for the seventh-seed Wolves, the team will hold Russell out in hopes that he's back to full health for Tuesday's play-in game against the Clippers.

  • Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Misses practice, uncertain Sunday

    Russell (hamstring) missed Saturday's practice due to a non-COVID-related illness and is considered questionable for Sunday's regular-season finale versus the Clippers, Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic reports.

    If Russell is ultimately unable to go, some combination of Patrick Beverley, Malik Beasley and Jaylen Nowell would presumably eat up his minutes. Expect more clarity on his status closer to tip-off Sunday.

  • Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Out Thursday

    Russell (hamstring) won't play in Thursday's game against San Antonio.

    Russell was a late addition to the injury report ahead of Thursday's matchup, and now he'll sit with a sore hamstring. Expect Jordan McLaughlin and Malik Beasley to see increased run versus the Spurs. Russell will presumably be tabbed questionable for the team's season finale against Chicago on Sunday.

  • Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Downgraded to questionable

    Russell is questionable for Thursday's game against the Spurs due to bilateral hamstring soreness.

    Russell is a late addition to the injury report, with his availability potentially coming down to a game-time call. If he sits, more time could be available for Jordan McLaughlin and Jaylen Nowell.

  • Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Records double-double Tuesday

    Russell logged 17 points (7-14 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds and 11 assists over 29 minutes during Tuesday's 132-114 loss to the Wizards.

    Russell recorded his first double-double in nearly a month, as the guard led the squad in assists while reaching the 17-point mark for a third straight game. The Ohio State product averaged 19.4 points entering the month of March. Since then though, Russell is only averaging 14.3 points across his last 16 games played.

  • Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Comes close to double-double

    Russell finished Sunday's 139-132 victory over the Rockets with 22 points (7-16 FG, 4-11 3Pt, 4-4 FT), one rebound, nine assists and four steals over 35 minutes.

    The speedy point guard ended just one assist shy of putting up what would've been his first double-double since March 5, when he recorded 14 points and 15 assists in a win over the Trail Blazers. Russell has now surpassed the 20-point mark in his last two games, something he hadn't accomplished since a four-game stretch between Feb. 24 and March 1.

  • Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Shooting struggles continue

    Russell finished with 13 points (3-15 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 6-8 FT), four rebounds and three assists across 28 minutes during Wednesday's 125-102 loss to the Raptors.

    Russell scored in double figures for the third time over his last five appearances, but he continues to struggle with his shot and is shooting just 30.6 percent during that span. While the poor shooting has grown worse over the last two weeks, the issue has been a season-long predicament for the lefty, as he's shooting just 40.8 percent from the field (his lowest since 2016) and 33.9 percent from three (his lowest since 2017).

  • Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Can't find stroke in loss

    Russell amassed 18 points (6-16 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five rebounds, four assists and one steal across 29 minutes during Monday's 110-108 loss to Dallas.

    Russell put up a respectable point total in the loss, but he struggled with a 6-for-16 mark from the field. The veteran point guard tied for the team lead with four assists, though that was his lowest mark in a game since Feb. 28. Russell is a valuable fantasy asset for his contributions as a scorer, three-point shooter and passer, but his value is dinged somewhat by a 41.5 percent field-goal rate.

  • Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Drops nine dimes Saturday

    Russell provided 16 points (6-12 FG, 4-8 3Pt), three rebounds and nine assists over 30 minutes during Saturday's 138-119 win over Milwaukee.

    It was another solid performance from the 26-year-old guard. Russell's scoring has been erratic lately, as he's scored in single digits in two of his last six games, but he's dished at least six assists in nine straight contests, with averages of 14.1 points, 8.7 assists, 2.8 boards, 2.2 threes and 1.2 steals over that stretch.

  • Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Lethargic in victory Wednesday

    Russell ended Wednesday's 124-104 win over the Lakers with six points (2-11 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 1-3 FT), one rebound and six assists in 30 minutes.

    Russell was a no-show in the victory, turning in arguably his worst performance of the season. It mattered little as the Timberwolves easily accounted for Lakers, demonstrating just how far they have come this season in terms of overall productivity. Over the past two weeks, Russell has averaged only 12.7 points per game, well down on his season average of 18.6. Outside of a couple of minor injury concerns, he has managed to stay relatively healthy thus far and has the team poised to make the playoffs for just the second time in the past 18 years.
