D’Angelo Russell opened up about the struggles the Minnesota Timberwolves are facing early in the season.

Russell and the Wolves have won only twice in the first five games (2-3) ad are still working on chemistry and distribution of roles.

“A lot of positions that we’re put in right now, it’s foreign for us. It’s not something that we’re used to or accustomed to, and then having somebody like KAT not in the game or not playing right now, it’s putting a lot of extra on a lot of us,” Russell said, via Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic.

Russell has been averaging 16.6 points, four assists, and 1.2 steals for Minnesota this season.
