D’Angelo Russell (ankle) scored 28 points (10-17 FG, 5-8 3Pt, 3-3 FT) and added 9 assists, 5 rebounds, and 1 steal in 31 minutes of action as the Lakers defeated the Raptors 122-112.
Although he had missed the Lakers’ previous six games with a sprained right ankle, Russell made a strong return in his first game action.
UPDATE (Mar. 10):
Mike Bresnahan of Spectrum SportsNet says that Russell is officially listed as probable for Friday’s game against the Raptors.
Coach Darvin Ham said earlier Thursday that Russell will be back on the court and will start Friday, so the likely designation seems more like a formality than anything else.
If nothing goes wrong in the next 24 hours, Russell will likely get back to being the starting point guard and Dennis Schroder will go back to being a reserve.

The Lakers point guard, D’Angelo Russell, has been out with a sprained right ankle and won’t play for the fourth game in a row.

UPDATE (Feb. 28):
The Lakers reported that starting point guard D’Angelo Russell is questionable for Tuesday’s game against the Grizzlies due to the right ankle sprain that forced him to miss Saturday’s game against Dallas.
