Los Angeles Lakers To Be Cautious With D'Angelo Russell's Injury

The Los Angeles Lakers will be cautious with D’Angelo Russell’s left foot soreness through the end of the regular season.

Ham on D’Angelo Russell, who’s dealing with the left foot soreness: “Saw an opportunity to give it an extra day’s rest.”

He cited the B2B against the Clippers as a factor. His status for tomorrow, as well as that of LeBron and AD, will be considered after tonight’s game.

Defeating the Utah Jazz on Tuesday night in overtime, the Los Angeles Lakers have now won four straight games and seven of their last eight games overall.

Following this win over the Jazz, the Lakers are heading back to Los Angeles, but for a road game against their in-house rivals, the Los Angeles Clippers.

Having Russell rested and ready to go is key for the Lakers and their chances of winning, which is why they are not pushing things.

Heading into this showdown with the Clippers, Russell will likely show up on the team’s injury report, but the early consensus is that he will be available and play in this crucial game.
