The Nets' point guard injury woes continue, and this time it's to D'Angelo Russell, who is in the midst of a breakout season.

Russell was injured late in Saturday's (Sunday, PHL time) 114-106 loss in Utah, and is likely to miss several games with what the Nets are calling a "left knee contusion,” according to a report from ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Russell is having a career season, averaging 20.7 points and 5.7 assists on 46.3 percent shooting while leading the Nets to a 5-8 start.

The Nets have already lost Jeremy Lin for the season (ruptured patellar tendon) and Spencer Dinwiddie is dealing with a hamstring injury.
