ESPN Fantasy Projection: Russell is a shooter/scorer lead guard whose production has stayed pretty similar during the past two seasons, when he played for three different teams and averaged 21.8 PPG (43.1 FG%, 79.5 FT%), 6.7 APG, 3.9 RPG, 3.1 3PG and 1.2 SPG. He was traded to the Timberwolves last season to be the star second option to Karl-Anthony Towns, but injuries prevented them from getting much run together. The Timberwolves have added No. 1 overall pick Anthony Edwards and starting point guard Ricky Rubio this offseason, which means that Russell will likely play more off the ball as a finisher and relatively less as a creator this season. Nevertheless, his production and potential make him worthy of fantasy basketball consideration in the late-early rounds of fantasy drafts.
