Los Angeles Lakers point guards D'Angelo Russell and Nick Young were ejected from Friday's game against the Milwaukee Bucks with 36.0 seconds left in the third quarter. What It Means: Young took exception to a hard foul from Milwaukee guard Malcolm Brogdon and pushed him after his missed layup. Russell got caught up in a minor scuffle and was ejected after receiving his second technical. Bucks forward/center Greg Monroe was also ejected after coming over and aggressively shoving Young in the neck area. While a suspension isn't likely, it wouldn't hurt to confirm Monroe's status for...

D'Angelo Russell will remain in the Lakers starting lineup on Tuesday

Los Angeles Lakers guard D'Angelo Russell will remain in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Los Angeles Clippers. What It Means: Coach Luke Walton is spending the remaining games of this season trying to figure out what he has in his young players. He will trot out the same starting lineup as he did on Sunday but said he would use a different starting five at another point this season. Russell should continue to get a bulk of the backcourt minutes, even if he were to shift to the bench for a game or two. Russell has had a disappointing sophomore season but has...

Russell scored a career-high 40 points starting at shooting guard while Jordan Clarkson manned the point on Sunday, and he will likely continue to see plenty of minutes alongside Clarkson in the back-court moving forward. Russell has averaged 15.3 points, 3.6 rebounds, 4.7...

D'Angelo Russell proved it doesn't matter which guard position he starts at

Los Angeles’ young guard defied labels in a historic performance. For all the hemming and hawing about whether or not D’Angelo Russell is a true point guard (whatever that means), the modern game has at least in part rendered positional designations like that pointless. Russell may have returned to the Los Angeles Lakers’ starting lineup as a nominal shooting guard, but his career-high 40 point, six assist performance in the Lakers’ 125-120 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers made it clear he can’t quite be pigeonholed. "I’m a basketball player, not a point guard or a shooting...
