Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

Heading into the 2015-16 NBA season, there are high expectations for D’Angelo Russell after being selected second overall by the Los Angeles Lakers. While Russell struggled during the team’s Summer League, it was recently revealed he played through knee and ankle injuries.

With the Lakers set to play their first preseason game tomorrow, head coach Byron Scott was asked about Russell’s performance through the first week of training camp via Mike Bresnahan of the Los Angeles Times:

Being a rookie point guard is the most difficult position to be in and Russell will face the top guards in the league on a nightly basis. While there will be highs and lows, Kobe Bryant has been very complimentary of the rookie who is expected to eventually carry the franchise.

Although Russell is dealing with a bone bruise in his foot, he participated in practice on Saturday. With the first preseason game tomorrow, there will be plenty of excitement for not only Russell, but Julius Randle and Jordan Clarkson.

Well RUSSELL here is hoping your foot feels better and you lead your team to its first victory of the pre-season, like all fans looking for a good beginning .

    Why would the team keep something like this a secret until now is beyond me but I’ve been pointing out in the past Russell’s playing weight in college was 176 pounds; he was naturally very small boned structure and you could see it in his skinny legs until he quickly piled on the weight up to last I’ve known is 193. That’s I was concerned is gonna have some negative impact on his lower body and I was right.

    He should just lower his weight down to his college playing days and relieve some of the pressure off of his ankle and knees.

  • Glad to see that the coach SCOTT likes what he sees. D’ANGELO RUSSEL will definitely have an opportunity to prove himself this year. With RUSSEL, CLARKSON and RANDLE we have players with great potential.
