Top D'Angelo Russell News

  • Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Out Friday

    Russell (shin) will not play in Friday's game against the Suns, Dane Moore of BringMeTheNews.com reports.

    Russell drew a questionable designation after injuring his shin in Thursday's victory over the Lakers. With Friday being the second night of a back-to-back set, the Timberwolves will err on the side of caution with their starting point guard. As a result, Malik Beasley and Jaylen Nowell figure to see increased roles.

  • Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Questionable Friday

    Russell (shin) is questionable for Friday's game at Phoenix.

    Russell suffered the injury during Thursday's matchup with the Warriors, and his availability for the second half of the back-to-back set is now up in the air. Malik Beasley and Jaylen Nowell should see increased run Friday should Russell ultimately be ruled out.

  • Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Exits early Thursday

    Russell suffered a left shin contusion during Thursday's contest against the Warriors.

    Russell suffered an injury to his shin at the beginning of the third quarter. The guard was quickly ruled out, finishing the game with eight points, five assists, four rebounds and a steal in 20 minutes of action. Expect Jaylen Nowell and Malik Beasley to see an abundance of playing time in Minnesota's backcourt if Russell is forced to miss Friday's contest against the Suns.

  • Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Posts game-winner

    Russell posted 22 points (7-16 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 5-6 FT), two rebounds and four assists over 35 minutes during Tuesday's 109-107 victory over the Trail Blazers.

    Russell got lucky with a borderline goaltending call on Anfernee Simons, who appeared to block Russell's game-winning shot attempt. In the final seconds, the call went Minnesota's way, yielding the narrow victory. After posting a double-double in the previous game, Russell's assist total suffered due to an excellent performance by Anthony Edwards, who is adept at creating his own opportunities.

  • Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Posts double-double in victory

    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.

  • Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Hits for 31 in loss

    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.

  • Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Stays hot from three

    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.

  • Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Posts double-double in win

    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.

  • Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Misses just one shot Friday

    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.

  • Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Struggles in return

    Russell totaled six points (3-12 FG, 0-5 3Pt), two rebounds, three assists and one steal across 30 minutes during Wednesday's 98-90 victory over the Thunder.

    Russell missed five straight games due to COVID-19 and conditioning, but this wasn't the return he would've liked since he made just 25 percent of his field-goal attempts while missing all five of his treys. The speedy point guard has been struggling in terms of efficiency, though, as he's averaging 15.9 points per game but shooting a meager 33.1 percent from the field and 29.9 percent from deep across nine games since the beginning of December.

  • Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Playing Wednesday

    Russell (conditioning) will play Wednesday against the Thunder, Kent Youngblood of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Both Russell and Karl-Anthony Towns are returning from health and safety protocols -- Russell's absence being five games. In December, Russell averaged 17.1 points, 8.4 assists and 4.3 rebounds in 35.0 minutes.

  • Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Participates in shootaround

    Russell (conditioning) went through shootaround ahead of Wednesday's contest against the Thunder, Kent Youngblood of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Youngblood reports that coach Chris Finch said he's optimistic Russell will play Wednesday. However, Finch also said Tuesday that Russell will be a game-time decision, so while there is optimism, there likely won't be a definitive update to the point guard's status until closer to the 8:00 PM ET tipoff.

  • Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Game-time call Wednesday

    Russell (conditioning) will be a game-time call for Wednesday's contest against the Thunder, Jace Crederick of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Russell cleared the league's health and safety protocols Monday morning but was still held out of the night's matchup against the Clippers due to conditioning concerns. After practice Tuesday, coach Chris Finch told the media that both Russell and Karl-Anthony Towns -- who also sat out Monday -- will be game-time calls Wednesday, with their status dependent on their conditioning levels. Russell has not played since Dec. 23 at Utah, so if he does play Wednesday it would be his first action in nearly two full weeks.

  • Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Still out Monday

    Russell has cleared the league's health and safety protocols but is out Monday against the Clippers for conditioning purposes.

    Russell will remain sidelined for a fifth consecutive game, but it appears as though he's trending toward a return in the near future. His next chance to return will be Wednesday against Oklahoma City, but he could be on a minutes restriction once he's cleared to play.

  • Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Won't return Friday

    Russell (COVID-19) is out for Friday's game against the Jazz, Dane Moore of BringMeTheNews.com reports.

    Russell entered the league's health and safety protocols on Christmas Day and will continue to be sidelined Friday. He's technically eligible to return after the NBA shortened the mandatory isolation period from 10 days to six, but he must be asymptomatic and meet other testing standards. Malik Beasley should continue to start in his place. His next chance to return will be Sunday against the Lakers.

  • Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Enters COVID protocols

    Russell has entered the NBA's health and safety protocols, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Russell is Minnesota's eighth player to enter the league's COVID protocols. He will join the likes of Karl-Anthony Towns and Anthony Edwards on the list. As a result, Jaylen Nowell and Malik Beasley figure to handle the starting backcourt duties for the immediate future.

  • Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Thrives as distributor Thursday

    Russell ended Thursday's 128-116 loss to the Jazz with 19 points (7-20 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven rebounds and 14 assists in 41 minutes.

    Russell's 19 points and seven boards were certainly valuable for his fantasy managers, but his biggest contribution came as a distributor. The veteran point guard tied his career high with 14 dimes after dishing a then-season-best 12 assists his last time out. Russell is averaging 6.7 dimes per contest on the campaign, which is on pace for his highest mark since 2018-19.

  • Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Solid scoring output Sunday

    Russell racked up 22 points (8-16 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds and three assists in 35 minutes during Sunday's 111-105 win over Dallas.

    Russell hadn't been able to reach the 20-point mark in any of his last three games following a three-game absence earlier this month, but he bounced back admirably here and delivered when his team needed him the most. This might be the spark Russell has been needing to turn things around, as his performances in recent weeks have been a bit subpar. He's averaging 17.3 points but shooting a meager 35.8 percent from the field across six December games.
