I divided my russian sage recently, just like I was supposed to, it was end of may, gut this is still spring in the poconos of pennsylvania. Now my plants look a bit wilted and I am worried, do you think they will take.
I agree that patience is your best bet right now. Newly divided plants frequently look a bit scruffy/dicey for awhile until they reestablish themselves. And Russian Sage is a pretty tough customer, so should come back fine.
