Nick Young out a few gamesPosted by Inside Hoops
Here’s ESPN Los Angeles with an update on yet another Laker who is banged up. Unlike other injuries that kept key players out for long stretches, this time it’s minor and short-term:
Nick Young still is experiencing pain in his left knee and will not play on the Los Angeles Lakers’ two-game road trip against the Indiana Pacers and Memphis Grizzlies.
Young, who suffered a non-displaced fracture of the patella and a bone bruise in his left knee Feb. 5 against the Cleveland Cavaliers, played 20 minutes against the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday but did not participate in shootaround Tuesday morning in Indianapolis.
“I’d say I was playing through adrenaline,” Young said of the Nets game, when he scored 10 points on 3-for-4 shooting. “[Monday] I felt more pain once I settled down.”
The Lakers are officially listing Young as day to day because of soreness in his knee.
