The Los Angeles Lakers got their preseason underway on Sunday night with rookie point guard D’Angelo Russell making his debut playing alongside Kobe Bryant and company.

Russell recently suffered a foot injury during training camp that was a concern and something the team was closely monitoring heading into the matchup with the Utah Jazz.

According to Sam Amick of USA Today, Russell wasn’t bothered by the bone bruise in his foot during his preseason debut:

With so many injuries ripping this team apart over the last few years, including a season-ending injury for Julius Randle last season, the Lakers brass want to make sure they can start the 2015-16 NBA season healthy. Russell entering his rookie season with an injury would be more of the same for this team, but it appears that may not be an issue with Russell seemingly being able to play through it.

In 21 minutes against the Jazz, Russell finished with five points, three assists and three rebounds while shooting 2-for-8 from the floor. Although Russell’s numbers aren’t going to blow anyone away, the rookie showed some of those incredible passing skills and his range in the loss to Utah.

The Lakers will be back in action on against the Jazz for a second time in Hawaii on Weds. Oct. 7.

Hibbert looks to be the single player most impactful to the game tonight with his defensive intensity at the rim; the weight in which he shed in the off season really made a difference and you can see he is motivated to play and make an impact.

People are not going to like what I’m about to propose but if Cousin is still disgruntled early into the season I think we can pull off a trade that include Hibbert and Russell; the salaries makes sense and we would be locked in on his salaries for two more years after this year.

  • You’re right, don’t like. Russ and JC are keepers, but the rest are accessible.

  • The problem with all of Russell fans (I am actually one of them, just not as a pg) is you fall in love with the “pretty girl syndrome”; you fall in love with the pretty no look passes and the pretty silky looking jump shot but ignore some of the more obvious weaknesses such as slow mechanical release on his shot and lack of speed/gear to keep up with the premier pgs in the nba. IMO, I’m not surprise at all that he broke down with sore knees and ankles in SL because I knew him putting all that weight so quickly from 176 to 195 was going to have a negative effect on his scrawny bone structure.

    You can see yesterday his adjustments to release on his shot still need a lot of work as besides one layup all of jumpers were way off clanking off the rim. HIs overall adjustments will improve if he moved to sg where he doesn’t need to expend too much energy fighting off the on ball defender. Some of the smarter basketball higher ups know this and it is why they are making JC share some of the ball handling duties but if they’re wise they would recognize eventually Russell is better overall and will be more productive at the 2 than 1.
