Wolves guard D’Angelo Russell to play Monday against Kings
D’Angelo Russell is back.
The Minnesota Timberwolves point guard will return to the floor Monday for the Timberwolves’ game against Sacramento, according to Stadium’s Shams Charania.
Russell has missed Wolves’ last 26 contests after undergoing knee surgery in early February. He last played Feb. 8, scoring six points in five minutes.
On the season, Russell is averaging 19.3 points, 5.1 assists and 2.6 rebounds in 20 contests. He’s shooting 39.9% from 3-point range and 42.6% from the field.
Karl-Anthony Towns and Russell have shared the floor in just five full games since the guard was traded to the Wolves last season. They’ll get their sixth chance Monday night.
The game will be televised on Bally Sports North PLUS, with “Wolves Live” beginning at 5:30 p.m.
