D'Angelo Russell's injury leaves hole at point guard for Brooklyn Nets

However, while the rookie who replaced him in Los Angeles was putting the finishing touches on a record-breaking triple-double Saturday night, Russell limped off the court in the final moments of Brooklyn's 114-106 loss to the Utah Jazz.

Nets guard D'Angelo Russell watches from the bench during the second half against the Nuggets on Tuesday, Nov. 7, 2017, in Denver.

Russell, acquired in an offseason trade with the Los Angeles Lakers, has been an integral piece of the team's offensive attack, averaging almost 21 points and six assists in 12 games since his arrival. He also missed three games in January with a right knee injury and eventually underwent platelet-rich plasma injections. However, he had looked much better during his last handful of outings.

The news is the latest injury blow for the Nets, who lost point guard Jeremy Lin for the season with a ruptured patella tendon in the season opener.
