Lakers News: D’Angelo Russell Refuses To Speak With Reporters After Beating Clips.

Russell made his return to the lineup against the Clippers.

Los Angeles Lakers point guard D’Angelo Russell returned to the lineup against the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday after missing the past three games. The guard scored 13 points in 31 minutes but refused to speak with reporters after the game.

It was a strange decline from Russell, especially after a win.

His presence was needed against the Clippers, but he did seem a little rusty. Russell shot 5-14 from the field, 3-9 from the three-point line and added in six assists.

These next few weeks will be very interesting for the veteran point guard, as he is likely to be moved at the trade deadline. Russell knows this and will do what he can to help this team going forward.

There is a chance that he won’t be moved if the team can’t find the right deal, but his contract is prime for a trade to be made. He is making a little over $17 million this season and has a player option for $18 million next year.

He has been subject to much criticism.

Russell has been subject to much criticism during his time back with the Lakers, and every move he makes has been broken down. This decline to speak with the media is another decision of his that is interesting, and likely won’t be met well.

The Lakers at least got the win, so maybe he just wanted to focus on celebrating with his teammates. L.A. is in the midst of a tough stretch, so any win is huge at this point.

Getting the win over the Clippers takes a weight off the Lakers back, even for one day. They will try to use this as a springboard for more success going forward, and hopefully, will get back to being the team everyone knows they can be.
