Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Well-rounded line in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell chipped in 28 points (8-15 FG, 5-12 3Pt, 7-9 FT), six rebounds, five assists and four steals in 34 minutes during Tuesday's 117-111 loss at Houston.

This was Russell's second-highest scoring output since he Joined the Timberwolves, and the point guard should remain as Minnesota's main scoring threat while Karl-Anthony Towns remains sidelined. That said, Russell has struggled with efficiency and is shooting just 36.6 percent from the field and 28.6 percent from three-point range during his last five games. Those poor shooting percentages conspire against his upside even if he's regularly nearing or topping the 20-point mark.

Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Puts up 19 in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell had 19 points (6-18 FG, 0-7 3PT, 7-7 FT), six rebounds and five assists in Sunday's loss to New Orleans.

It was another forgettable shooting night for Russell, who missed all seven of his attempts from beyond the arc. He did provide decent supplementary stats, however, including a block and a steal on the defensive end.

Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Forgettable night Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell ended with five points (2-14 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds and three assists in 23 minutes during Friday's 132-118 loss to Orlando.

Russell had his worst game as a member of the Timberwolves, basically missing everything he took aim at. Those invested in Russell will simply need to give him a pass here and hope that he can turn things around in what should be a fast-paced game against the Pelicans on Sunday.

Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Mediocre in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell scored 19 points (6-13 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 3-3 FT), while adding four assists, three rebounds and a steal in 31 minutes Wednesday, as Minnesota beat Chicago 115-108. He also had six turnovers.

Russell has opened March in a bit of a cold spell from beyond the arc (9-of-28). It is worth noting that Wednesday marked the second half of a back-to-back following a 139-134 win on Tuesday, so he probably wasn't the freshest. Nonetheless, Russell currently resides in an offense barren of other stars once again, yielding plenty of usage and opportunity. Minnesota will play Orlando on Friday.

Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Nears double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell notched 23 points (8-21 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 4-4 FT), eight assists, three rebounds and one steal in 31 minutes during Tuesday's 139-134 win at the Pelicans.

Russell has looked impressive since joining the Timberwolves, as he has topped the 20-point mark in six of eight games with the franchise while also dishing out at least five assists in each of those contests. Through eight games with Minnesota, the former Warrior is averaging 23.6 points and 7.8 assists per game. He should benefit from Andrew Wiggins' departure and Karl-Anthony Towns' wrist injury to remain the team's main scoring threat for the foreseeable future, thus resulting in a likely spike of his overall numbers.

Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Set to play back-to-back games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell is expected to play in Wednesday's game against the Bulls on the second night of a back-to-back, Chris Hine of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Head coach Ryan Saunders said he anticipates the 24-year-old will play on Wednesday against Chicago. It comes after the NBA fined the Timberwolves for resting a healthy Russell on Feb. 23 against Denver, the first game of a back-to-back set. The former All-Star's last back-to-back was a little over two months ago as a member of the Warriors.

Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Pops for team-high 28 in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell scored a team-high 28 points (11-22 FG, 5-11 3Pt, 1-2 FT) while adding seven assists, three rebounds, a steal and a block in 36 minutes during Friday's 136-125 loss to the Magic.

While the 24-year-old guard put together another strong line, it could have been even better as Russell went cold down the stretch and failed to score a point in the fourth quarter. He's now averaging 25.0 points, 7.8 assists, 4.0 threes, 3.8 boards and 1.3 steals over six games since coming over to Minnesota.

Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Scores team-high 27
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell had 27 points (9-18 FG, 7-14 3PT, 2-3 FT), six assists, five rebounds and three steals in Wednesday's win over Miami.

Coming off of a 29-point effort against Dallas on Monday, Russell has now scored at least 22 points in four of five games with the Timberwolves. His three steals were his most in a Wolves uniform, and Russell's seven made threes were his second-highest total of the season.

Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Hot from field in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell (knee) finished with 29 points (10-20 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 6-6 FT), five assists, three rebounds and one steal across 31 minutes Monday in the Timberwolves' 139-123 loss to the Mavericks.

After resting in the front end of the back-to-back set Monday in Denver, Russell faced no limitations in his return to action and delivered a quality night on the offensive end. Through his first four games with Minnesota, Russell has topped 20 points on three occasions while chipping in 8.5 assists, 3.8 rebounds, 3.0 three-pointers and 1.0 steal per outing.

Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Not on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell is not listed on the injury report ahead of Monday's game against Dallas.

Russell missed Sunday's loss to Denver for maintenance purposes, but he'll be back in the lineup Monday for the second night of a back-to-back. In three games since joining the Timberwolves, Russell is averaging 22.0 points, 9.7 assists, 2.0 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 33.7 minutes.

Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Should play Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Ryan Saunders said Russell (knee) is expected to play Monday at Dallas, Dane Moore of ZoneCoverage.com reports.

Russell was already officially ruled out for Sunday's game versus the Nuggets due to planned rest, though he also sat out Saturday's practice due to knee soreness. It doesn't appear to be a serious issue, but he may need to manage the injury for the near future. Jordan McLaughlin and Jarrett Culver figure to see increased run at the point in Russell's absence.

Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Will miss Sunday's contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell will sit Sunday against Denver due to knee soreness, Jace Frederick of St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

The Wolves sit 11 games out of a playoff spot, so it's no surprise that they're being cautious with their point guard's knee. Jordan McLaughlin will likely man the position in Russell's absence. Whether or not Russell will return Monday in Dallas remains to be seen.

Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Managing sore knee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell didn't practice Saturday due to knee soreness, Chris Hine of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Coach Ryan Saunders said the absence from practice was precautionary, but he wouldn't commit to Russell suiting up Sunday. The Timberwolves have a back-to-back set Sunday and Monday in Denver and Dallas, respectively, so it wouldn't be surprising to see the team express additional caution in managing the point guard's workload, if he's even available..

Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Big double-double despite loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell posted 18 points (5-16 FG, 1-9 3Pt, 7-8 FT), 13 assists and six rebounds in 34 minutes during Friday's 127-117 loss against the Celtics.

Russell's 13 assists were a season-high mark for the star point guard, who is averaging 9.7 dimes in his first three games with the club. Russell should carve a similar role to the one he had been playing for the Warriors, as he'll be one of the team's biggest scoring threats for the Timberwolves considering Karl-Anthony Towns (wrist) will be sidelined for the next few weeks.

Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Full line in second game with club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell compiled 26 points (9-23 FG, 4-12 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 11 assists, six rebounds, two steals and one block across 35 minutes Wednesday in the Timberwolves' 115-108 loss to the Hornets.

In his second game as a member of the Timberwolves, Russell didn't have running mate Karl-Anthony Towns (wrist) by his side, but the point guard still stuffed the stat sheet nicely. The double-double was the second of the season for Russell, who is averaging career highs in points (23.6 per game) and triples (3.7 per game) and should continue offering most of his value in those two areas.

Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Drops 22 in Wolves debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell scored 22 points (7-12 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT) while adding five assists and a steal in 32 minutes during Monday's 137-126 loss to the Raptors.

He also committed six turnovers, but overall it was a solid Minnesota debut for Russell. Going from an injury-ravaged Warriors roster to a depleted Timberwolves club shouldn't impact his production, and as Russell develops his chemistry with Karl-Anthony Towns, it's possible his numbers could tick up down the stretch.

Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Cleared for Minnesota debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell (quadriceps) will play Monday against the Raptors, Eric Koreen of The Athletic reports.

Russell, who was acquired from the Warriors in a blockbuster deal earlier in the month, has been cleared to make his Minnesota debut after missing Saturday's game against the Nets with a quad contusion. The soon-to-be 24-year-old will immediately join the starting five, which will likely push Jordan McLaughlin back to a reserve role. Across 33 games this season, Russell is averaging 23.6 points, 6.2 assists and 3.7 rebounds in 32.1 minutes.

February 10, 2020 03:44 PM
Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Still questionable for Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell (quadriceps) will go through shootaround Monday before Minnesota decides on his availability for its game later in the day against Toronto, Alan Horton of the Timberwolves Radio Network reports.

Coach Ryan Saunders said that the team will have a better idea about Russell's status once shootaround concludes. The star point guard is battling a bruised right quadriceps and was unable to make his team debut in Saturday's 142-115 win over the Clippers. If Russell remains out again Monday, Jordan McLaughlin would likely be in line for a second consecutive start.

Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Listed as questionable for Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell (quad) is considered questionable for Monday's game against the Raptors.

Russell was technically available to make his debut Saturday night, but a bruised right quad ended up keeping him sidelined. The hope is that another day of rest will enable the guard to play Monday night, though the Wolves will wait until Monday to issue an update.

Timberwolves' D'Angelo Russell: Won't debut Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Russell (quad) is out Saturday against the Clippers.

We'll have to wait for Russell to make his debut, as he's dealing with a bruised right quad and will sit out Saturday. His next opportunity to play arrives Monday against the Raptors. With Russell out, Jordan McLaughlin and Jarrett Culver should do much of the ballhandling from the backcourt.
