Nets' D'Angelo Russell likely to miss several games with knee injury

Brooklyn Nets guard D'Angelo Russell will miss several games with a left knee contusion, league sources told ESPN.

Russell scored 26 points in Saturday's 114-106 loss at Utah but injured his left knee with 2:57 remaining after making contact with a defender.

Russell's injury won't hurt the Nets too much in the short term. Russell grimaced as he hobbled to the bench.

After starting November with a grueling five-game Western Conference road trip, the Nets play their next three games at home against the Boston Celtics, the Jazz, and the Golden State Warriors. Russell is scheduled to undergo further evaluation on Sunday afternoon, so hopefully we'll know more later this evening.

Russell was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2015 National Basketball Association draft, averaging 14.8 points and 4.1 assists in his two-plus-year National Basketball Association career.

The Nets and Lakers trade sending D'Angelo Russell to Brooklyn has, to this point, worked out well for both teams. For a franchise that dealt with Jeremy Lin's ruptured patellar tendon on opening night, that image gave Nets fans a scare.
