Lakers’ Russell to Start For Remainder of Season


Los Angeles Lakers rookie guard D’Angelo Russell returned to the starting lineup Sunday against the Chicago Bulls after being moved to the bench two and a half months ago.

Russell, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2015 draft, finished with 15 points and 6 assists in a 126-115 loss to the Bulls at the United Center and will start for the remainder of the season, said Lakers coach Byron Scott.
