Description: Lakers guard/forward Nick Young (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game versus Dallas.
Insight: Young did not work out on Saturday, and is up in the air for Sunday. He is still day-to-day, and should return soon, if he cannot suit up against Dallas.

Description: Lakers guard/forward Nick Young (knee) will not play Friday.
Insight: Young will have missed five straight games. He's averaging 13.4 ppg, but that's the only area he contributes to so his fantasy value is limited.

Description: Lakers guard/forward Nick Young will not play on Wednesday against the Jazz according to the Salt Lake Tribune.
Insight: Young scored 19 points in his last game, so it's too bad he won't get a chance to build upon that. The good new is an MRI didn't find anything wrong with Young's knee. Just make sure he is out of the fantasy lineup on Wednesday.
 
2/4/2015 12:28:00 PM
Description: Lakers guard/forward Nick Young (sprained his right ankle) was actually a DNP-CD on Sunday which didn't sit well with the player.
Insight: Young and Byron Scott got together and may now be on the same page. Expect Young on the floor Wednesday versus Milwaukee. He's a scorer and a three-point shooter, but adds little else for fantasy owners.

Description: Lakers guard/forward Nick Young (sprained his right ankle) missed Thursday's game against the Bulls and was limited in Friday's shootaround.

Description: Lakers guard/forward Nick Young (sprained his right ankle) missed Wednesday's practice and has been downgraded to out for Thursday's game against the Bulls.
Insight: Wayne Ellington certainly enjoyed not having to share shot attempts with Young or Kobe Bryant as he went off for 28 points Tuesday night on 20 shots. Ellington is again a viable fantasy option.

Description: Lakers guard/forward Nick Young sprained his right ankle in practice Monday and has been downgraded to out for Tuesday against Washington.
Insight: After posting 17 points Friday night, Young looked like he didn't want to be out there on Sunday going 0-for 2 with three turnovers in eight minutes. Wayne Ellington and Wes Johnson will see an increase in fantasy value.

Description: Lakers guard/forward Nick Young disappeared Sunday night and played just eight ugly minutes.
Insight: After posting 17 points Friday night, Young looked like he didn't want to be out there going 0-for 2 with three turnovers. To his credit, Byron Scott quickly looked to other guys to perform. Young is a boom or bust fantasy option.

1/23/2015 11:26:00 AM
Description: Lakers guard/forward Nick Young is probable for Friday's game against San Antonio while dealing with a sprained right thumb.
Insight: Young has never met a shot he didn't like and with Kobe Bryant sidelined he should pick up a lot of the workload at the offensive end. He's averaging 17.5 ppg over his last four contests, but doesn't offer much other than scopring for fantasy owners.
 
1/17/2015 9:22:00 AM
Description: Lakers guard/forward Nick Young came off the bench and scored 23 points to lead the Lakers in scoring on Friday.
Insight: Young only took nine shots, making four of them, but he hit 13-of-13 from the free-throw line. Young didn't do much else with just two rebounds, however, anyone who rolled the dice with him on Friday should be very happy with his points and free throw percentage.

Description: Lakers guard/forward Nick Young missed Wednesday's practice (sore right knee) and is questionable for Friday's game against Orlando.

Description: Lakers guard/forward Nick Young could be in for another big game Monday versus Portland.
Insight: Young is coming off a 22-point performance Sunday night and with Wesley Johnson and Kobe Bryant sidelined for Monday's game should see plenty of minutes and shot attempts.
