Brooklyn Nets guard D’Angelo Russell will miss several games with a left knee contusion, league sources told ESPN.
The Nets’ backcourt has been hit hard by injuries, with Jeremy Lin out for the season with a ruptured patellar tendon and backup Spencer Dinwiddie out with a sore hamstring.
Russell joined Brooklyn, along with Timofey Mozgov, in a trade with the Los Angeles Lakers in June for Brook Lopez and a first-round draft pick.
