The injury happened during the Nets' loss to the Jazz on Saturday night, and he returned to MRI with the rest of the team and had an MRI on Sunday, per Wojnarowski.

A report from ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski indicated that Russell is expected to miss at least three games with this knee injury, but the Nets' haven't yet offered up an official timetable for his return. Russell landed awkwardly and hobbled to the bench before going to the locker room.

D'Angelo Russell (left knee) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Celtics.

Russell has been very impressive so far in the early season since being traded from Los Angeles to Brooklyn.

Russell missed Brooklyn's win over Cleveland on October 25 with a right knee sprain and Spencer Dinwiddie scored 22 points in his place.

Russell, acquired in an offseason trade with the Los Angeles Lakers, has been an integral piece of the team's offensive attack, averaging almost 21 points and six assists in 12 games since his arrival.

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