If you can forecast how much snow the Eastern Sierra will get between now and then, you can get a decent idea. You may want crampons/ice axes for part of the approach, or you may not need them at all. Who knows? Check back a month or two before your trip and you'll get a much better idea of what kind of snow/ice conditions to expect.

I have similar plans for the summer, with Whitney also added to the tic list. Which route on Russel are you planning on doing?

I would think that most years you would be ok by the 3 week of July.
