Brooklyn Nets Rumors
D’Angelo Russell moved a step closer to returning from arthroscopic knee surgery when he was assigned to the Long Island Nets for a full practice Monday morning before being recalled after the workout. Coach Kenny Atkinson called it “good news” for Russell and the Nets. “It was a full out practice,” Atkinson said. “So he’s getting close. It’s [Tuesday] and what does it look like? Just get feedback on where he is after a tough practice.”
“Yes, I’d like to see him in some simulated game action,” Atkinson said. “But it’s also when that performance team comes in and the coaches and say, ‘Hey man, this is the day.’ Then we’ll go for it . . . and obviously D’Angelo. That’s an important part of it.”
