D'Angelo Russell reflects on NBA journey and feeling 'at home' in Minnesota

In an interview with senior writer Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic, Timberwolves G D'Angelo Russell stated, “this is where I’m supposed to be.” Russell was referring to the warm reception he received from fans and the Timberwolves organization upon arriving at the Minnesota airport after being traded by the Golden State Warriors on February 6, 2020.

Fantasy Impact

Russell expanded on his feelings, revealing that, “for me to come here, this feels more at home to me... like I could settle down, raise my family and unpack my bags.” The article provided great insight into Russell's yearn for stability after being on four teams (Lakers, Nets, Warriors, and T'Wolves) within the first five years of his career. Interestingly enough, he is one of only 14 active all-stars to have played for four or more franchises. D-Lo inked a 4-yr $117M contract with the Nets in July 2019, as part of a sign-and-trade with the Warriors so Minnesota will be his home for the foreseeable future. He's only scratched the surface with his new-look team, averaging 21.7 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 6.6 assists in 12 games for the Timberwolves this season.

D'Angelo Russell drops 28 points Tuesday

D'Angelo Russell put up 28 points (8-15 FG, 5-12 3PT, 7-9 FT), six rebounds, five assists, and four steals across 33 minutes of play Tuesday night.

Fantasy Impact

Russell put up one of his better games since joining the Wolves at the trade deadline. He's easily their best player with Karl-Anthony Towns sidelined but Minnesota probably won't push him too hard down the stretch since they're not competing for a playoff spot.

D'Angelo Russell has typical game, goes 19/6/5 w/ five turnovers

D'Angelo Russell scored 19 points (6-18 FG, 0-7 3PT, 7-7 FT), with six rebounds, five assists, one steal, one block, and five turnovers in 35 minutes in Sunday's 120-107 loss to New Orleans.

Fantasy Impact

Russel's numbers haven't been as good in Minnesota as they were in Golden State, but he's still putting up a respectable 21.1 points, 3.7 rebounds, 6.7 assists, and 1.2 steals in 32 minutes a game for the Timberwolves. His FG% is down from 43 percent to 40.3 percent, but he's still giving fantasy owners solid production all around on any given night. Russell is a cornerstone for this Minnesota team, and he should continue to have success down the stretch.

D'Angelo Russell has dreadful night in loss Friday

D'Angelo Russell mustered just five points (2-14 FG, 0-4 3PT, 1-2 FT), five rebounds, and three assists over 23 minutes of play Friday.

Fantasy Impact

It was a season-low output in what's been a trying season for Russell. He's far too talented to be ignored in fantasy and has better days ahead, but it's a tough situation for him on the lowly Timberwolves for his right now.

D’Angelo Russell has 26th straight double-digit scoring performance in win

D’Angelo Russell totaled 19 points (6-13 FG, 4-10 3PT, 3-3 FT), three rebounds, four assists, and one steal in 31 minutes in the Timberwolves’ 115-108 victory over the Bulls on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Wasting no time to pick up where he left off, Russell has been stellar in his play since joining the Timberwolves. His 19-point game against the Bulls this past Wednesday marked his 26th straight double-digit scoring performance, a streak that began during his previous play with the Warriors. In his nine games with the Timberwolves Russell has averaged 33.1 minutes played, 18 field goals taken, 9.6 three-points taken, 4.2 rebounds, 7.3 assists, and 23.1 points per game. His volume, usage, and opportunity continue to make him a must-start in all formats, as long as he maintains a healthy number of minutes. If the Timberwolves, for some reason, begin to rest him more due to the loss season, it would be best to monitor how that will impact the value stream of your team.
