D’Angelo Russell’s leg injury isn’t as bad as the team first feared, but the Lakers point guard is still expected to miss one to two weeks.
The team announced Saturday that an MRI revealed a mild MCL sprain in Russell’s right knee, a right calf strain and a bone bruise. The Lakers said he will be re-evaluated in a week, but he could miss up to two weeks.
Authentic Youth Orlando Cepeda Jersey We got to come out better, man, Butler said, via ESPN.com. We got to start playing better from the jump. Forty-eight minutes, man. It’s terrible basketball. That’s not the way we’re supposed to play.
It’s so disappointing because the way we practice isn’t the way that we play in the game. Don’t ask me why, I don’t know. Starting from me going all the way down the line, we’ve got to be better as a whole, as a team. Otherwise, we’re just going to keep getting our asses beat. It’s bad.
Brent Burns Mens Jersey Butler, who played well, scoring 19 points on 6 of 8 shooting made sure to include himself among the players in need of fine-tuning to help the team. Robin Lopez (10 points) was the only other starter in double figures Friday.
The candid remarks from Butler 鈥?the team’s unquestioned leader 鈥?will only further fuel Fred Hoiberg’s already flammable hot seat. I’d just feel better if somebody was in that position that showed the maturity and psychological and emotional level of somebody that was his age. It’s dangerous and it doesn’t do us any good. I hope he does a great job but there’s a difference between respecting the office of the presidency and who occupies it. And that respect has to be earned. But it’s hard to be respectful of someone when we all have kids and we’re watching him be misogynistic and xenophobic and racist and make fun of handicapped people.
