Russell went down with a left knee injury late in the game, and on Sunday, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported he will miss "several games" at least, with further evaluation needed. Now, the Nets will likely be without D'Angelo Russell for a bit. The replay didn't look that bad, but Russell immediately hobbled to the bench, and looked to be in real pain.

Jeremy Lin's season-ending patella tendon injury, however, already put a strain on the Nets' backcourt depth.

Justice League will reveal the 'true' Superman
"There are certain characters who hold a special place in the hearts of millions", Affleck said in a statement in January. While he ponders his own future as the Dark Knight, the actor does see a timeliness in Justice League's arrival now.

Last season with the Los Angeles Lakers, Russell missed 11 games with left knee soreness in November and December. The 2015 No. 2 overall pick averaged 15.6 points and 4.8 assists per game and shot 35.2 percent from three-point range. Spencer Dinwiddie, now second on the point guard depth chart after Lin's injury, is also dealing with a wonky hamstring, which could force Brooklyn to get creative moving forward. Spencer Dinwiddie (hamstring) is expected to start on Tuesday night sans Russell, so he could be an option in DFS, and there will also be more opportunity for guys like Sean Kilpatrick and Caris LeVert.
