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.
