Lakers Point Guard D’Angelo Russell Returns


After missing 11 straight games with a sore left knee, Los Angeles Lakers point guard D’Angelo Russell returned to the starting lineup Sunday in his team’s 118-112 loss to the New York Knicks.

Russell, who was on a minutes restriction, finished with three points on 1-of-8 shooting in about 17 minutes and said he “felt good” afterward. He added that he’s trying to shake the rust off after being sidelined. “I feel like I took the shots I usually take, made the passes I usually make,” Russell said. “The turnovers were the turnovers I know I could do better at. It’s just finding that rhythm.”
