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.
