D’Angelo Russell is doubtful with a right knee sprain

NBA: Preseason-Brooklyn Nets at New York Knicks Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

D’Angelo Russell has been listen as doubtful, the Nets announced before Wednesday’s home game against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Russell tweaked his knee in Tuesday night’s game against the Orlando Magic. He stayed in the game and both Russell and Kenny Atkinson downplayed it.

Last year, however, Russell was plagued with injuries to both his right and left knees. He missed 11 games early in the season because of a sore left knee and received a platelet-rich plasma injection to speed the healing. He missed three games in January due to a right knee injury.

The Nets have not given any further details on the severity of the knee sprain.
