Russell suffered the injury around the midpoint of the third quarter of Golden State's matchup with Boston. He went to the locker room and never returned, finishing with 12 points, seven assists and nine turnovers in 25 minutes of action.
As ESPN's Bobby Marks tweeted, the Warriors are now down to nine healthy players. In addition to Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Russell, Kevon Looney, Jacob Evans, Alen Smailagic and Damion Lee are each dealing with injuries.
