Russell has missed the last nine games after spraining his right thumb against the Celtics on Nov. 15.
The 23-year-old is averaging 24.3 points and 6.7 assists per game, while shooting a career-high 45.5 percent from the field.
Russell did not play when Charlotte beat Golden State at Chase Center on Nov. 2.
D'Angelo Russell is likely to return tonight in Charlotte after a 9-game absence. Draymond Green will return after a 1-game rest. That'll give the Warriors 11 healthy bodies. "I don't know what to do," Kerr joked.— Anthony Slater (@anthonyVslater) December 4, 2019
The Warriors (4-18) finish their five-game road trip Friday in Chicago.
