D’Angelo Russell set to return against the Denver Nuggets

It looks like the Los Angeles Lakers will be getting an added lift to the roster when they take the court against the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday night.

The team announced starting point guard D’Angelo Russell will make his return from a mild MCL and calf strain. The diagnosis came as a blessing with how his fall against the Indiana Pacers looked like it could be serious.

Russell has missed the last four games (excluding the minute that he played against Indiana), and the team finished 1-3 in those games. In those four games, the team only managed to top the century mark in points one time.

Russell missed 13 games earlier this year with a knee issue on his opposite knee. In his first return from that there was a minutes restriction for the first few games but it has yet to be seen if that will be the case again.

With the playoffs looking out of reach at this point and the importance of Russell’s future to the franchise, it shouldn’t be a surprise if they’re cautious.
