However, the Laker faithful and the Lakers themselves were finally handed a small bit of good news on Sunday morning as it appears D’Angelo Russell will suit up for the team for Sunday night’s contest against the New York Knicks.
Walton on D'Angelo Russell. "If all goes accordingly from now until to gametime he’ll be out there tonight." Lakers 3-9 without their PG.
