  • Lakers' D'Angelo Russell: Scores 26 in stellar outing

    Russell finished with 26 points (9-17 FG, 5-11 3Pt, 3-5 FT), six rebounds, three assists, one block and four steals across 34 minutes during Monday's 116-104 win over the Thunder.

    Russell drained five three-pointers on the way to his excellent total. He was also key on the defensive end, matching his second-best total of the season with four steals. LeBron James sent the ball back out to Russell often when he was open, allowing for a few easy looks beyond the arc. The Lakers have now won 10 of their last 14 and are humming like a well-oiled machine with Russell at the helm

  • Lakers' D'Angelo Russell: Posts 22 points in OT win

    Russell totaled 22 points (9-21 FG, 4-11 3Pt), six rebounds, five assists, one block and one steal over 44 minutes during Thursday's 134-131 overtime victory over the Wizards.

    Russell contributed in every major category during the narrow win. The veteran guard is executing one of his most accurate shooting years as a pro, and his three-point stroke has enjoyed the most improvement. He's connecting on 41.7 percent beyond the arc this season, which is a career high. Russell is also averaging 2.0 turnovers per game, which marks the lowest percentage of his nine-year career.

  • Lakers' D'Angelo Russell: Strong from deep in 20-point outing

    Russell racked up 20 points (8-14 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 0-1 FT), three rebounds, seven assists, one block and one steal across 37 minutes during Sunday's 123-113 loss to Phoenix.

    Russell led all Lakers in threes while ending as one of three players with 20 or more points and finishing three assists short of the double-digit mark to boost Los Angeles offensively. Russell has connected on four or more threes in 17 games this year, including in three of his last six contests. Over his last 10 appearances, Russell has surpassed the 20-point mark five times.

  • Lakers' D'Angelo Russell: Sniffs double-double in loss

    Russell logged 18 points (6-15 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five rebounds, nine assists and two steals over 34 minutes during Thursday's 128-110 loss to the Warriors.

    Russell had an average shooting night but was able to provide fantasy support with nine assists. Russell collected a season-high 17 assists before the break against Utah, and although the guard has notched double-digit assists six times this season, he depends on shot volume to be truly successful. LeBron James (ankle) has been the primary dime-dropper this season, so fantasy managers should expect a fantasy-point uptick assist-wise when James is absent.

  • Lakers' D'Angelo Russell: Boosts offense in season-high game

    Russell notched 11 points (4-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-3 FT), nine rebounds, 17 assists and one steal across 33 minutes during Wednesday's 138-122 win over Utah.

    Russell led all players in Wednesday's contest in assists while setting a season-high mark in dimes and ending one rebound shy of a triple-double in an impressive offensive showcase. Russell has handed out 10 or more assists in six games this season, recording a double-double in each of those outings. The point guard has been on a tear since the trade deadline, tallying 14 or more assists in two of his last six appearances.

  • Lakers' D'Angelo Russell: Posts 21 points in win

    Russell amassed 21 points (8-18 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 1-2 FT), two rebounds, three assists and one block across 32 minutes during Tuesday's 125-111 victory over the Pistons.

    Although Russell logged 32 minutes, he shared time with Spencer Dinwiddie, who made his debut with the Lakers. Russell's starting gig is safe, but Dinwiddie proved his worth early and often in the win. A potential downtick in output for Russell is a strong possibility, although the differential should be slight.

  • Lakers' D'Angelo Russell: Returns to lead team with 30 points

    Russell supplied 30 points (9-19 FG, 6-13 3Pt, 6-6 FT), two rebounds, five assists and one steal across 40 minutes during Friday's 139-122 victory over the Pelicans.

    Russell was the centerpiece of a dynamic 87-point first half for the Lakers, who were humming on all cylinders with five players scoring 20-plus points in the win. Although Russell's superlative play gives him a firm hold on the starting job, free agent Spencer Dinwiddie was watching from the stands and appears to be on the verge of signing with the team. Although he would serve in the second unit as relief for Russell and Austin Reaves, he's a substantial upgrade in the slot. Russell could lose a minute or two if the signing goes through.

  • Lakers' D'Angelo Russell: Status in doubt after treatment

    Russell underwent an undisclosed treatment Tuesday and didn't practice Wednesday, and he will likely be listed as questionable for Thursday's game against Denver, Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com reports.

    McMenamin reported earlier Wednesday that coach Darvin Ham said Russell underwent a "tune-up procedure," but a team spokesperson later clarified it was a "treatment." It's still unclear exactly what happened, but the fact Russell hasn't been ruled out immediately for Thursday's game suggests his injury is minor. However, it wouldn't be surprising to see the point guard miss both halves of the Lakers' upcoming back-to-back set.

    Coach Darvin Ham said Russell underwent a "tune-up procedure" Tuesday and didn't practice Wednesday, and his availability for Thursday's game against the Nuggets is uncertain, Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com reports.

  • Lakers' D'Angelo Russell: Shines with double-double in win

    Russell logged 16 points (5-20 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 2-4 FT), eight rebounds, 14 assists and two steals in 39 minutes during Thursday's 114-105 win over Boston.

    Russell returned to double-digit scoring figures after his nine-point outing against the Hawks on Jan. 30, and he also registered a season-high mark in assists, which was to be expected given the Lakers were without their two most dominant players in Anthony Davis (Achilles) and LeBron James (ankle). Russell is going through his best stretch of the season, averaging 22.9 points, 6.7 assists and 2.6 rebounds per game across his last 10 outings.
