The injury happened during the Nets' loss to the Jazz on Saturday night, and he returned to MRI with the rest of the team and had an MRI on Sunday, per Wojnarowski.

D'Angelo Russell has come roaring out of the gates during the first four weeks of his first season with the Brooklyn Nets, averaging a career-high 21 points per game. Russell landed awkwardly and hobbled to the bench before going to the locker room.

After starting November with a grueling five-game Western Conference road trip, the Nets play their next three games at home against the Boston Celtics, the Jazz, and the Golden State Warriors.

The Nets and Lakers trade sending D'Angelo Russell to Brooklyn has, to this point, worked out well for both teams.

Jeremy Lin's season-ending patella tendon injury, however, already put a strain on the Nets' backcourt depth.

Russell's prognosis isn't serious, but it will result in the third-year guard missing several games of action. He also missed three games in January with a right knee injury and eventually underwent platelet-rich plasma injections.
