D’Angelo Russell injury status vs. Bulls
As per the official NBA injury report, Russell was listed as questionable to play as he continues to deal with soreness in his right hip. The point guard was then ruled out of the lineup leading up to the game, but there was good news in the form of LeBron James’ return to the lineup. The King will be coming off the bench Sunday against the Bulls, who are also jockeying for postseason position.
Dennis Schroder deputized for Russell against the Thunder and had a fine game, finishing with 21 points, three rebounds and six assists. As things stand, the Lakers have won three in a row and could move to seventh with a win over Chicago — something that seemed unfathomable given their 2-10 start to the regular season.
So, to answer our initial question: Is D’Angelo Russell playing vs. the Bulls? He is not, but the return of LeBron James brings plenty of joy to the Lakers as they look to continue their surge.
