Description: Lakers guard/forward Nick Young (sprained his right ankle) missed Thursday's game against the Bulls and was limited in Friday's shootaround.
Insight: Coach Byron Scott said he did some running but couldn't really cut. That makes him more doubtful than questionable. Wayne Ellington gets to take a lot fo shots when Young and Kobe Bryant aren't around.
 
1/29/2015 2:48:00 PM
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) missed Wednesday's practice making his appearance in Thursday's game against the Bulls questionable.
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 could again be a viable fantasy option.
 
1/27/2015 3:49:00 PM
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 sprained his right ankle in practice Monday and should be considered questionable 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. If he can't run, Wayne Ellington and Wes Johnson would 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.
 
1/24/2015 9:17:00 AM
Description: Lakers guard/forward Nick Young scored a team-high 17 points during Friday's loss against the Spurs.
Insight: It was an unimpressive line. Young did have three 3-pointers, but also no assists and rebounds, along with one turnover.
 
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.
 
1/9/2015 4:50:00 PM
Description: Lakers guard/forward Nick Young missed Wednesday's practice (sore right knee) will play Friday versus Orlando.
Insight: He was questionable heading into the night, but seems good to go. Get Young into your lineup as you normally would.
 
1/9/2015 11:15:00 AM
Description: Lakers guard/forward Nick Young missed Wednesday's practice (sore right knee) and is questionable for Friday's game against Orlando.
Insight: Young was sent to a doctor to have his knee checked out. he can certainly put up shots and points if on the floor, but we have our doubts he'll be ready for Friday's contest.
 
1/5/2015 11:02:00 AM
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.
 
12/13/2014 9:31:00 AM
Description: Lakers guard Nick Young hit the game-winning 3-pointer in overtime, with under 10 seconds left, to lift Los Angeles over the Spurs on Friday night.
Insight: Young went 9-of-14 from the field and 5-of-5 from the line for 29 points. He is averaging 15.7 ppg and is a top-85 option.
 
12/2/2014 10:07:00 PM
Description: Lakers guard Nick Young scored 19 points off the bench on Tuesday.
Insight: He also hit three 3-pointers, but was only 5-of-13 from the field. Young will continue to produce points and 3-pointers for owners.
 
11/19/2014 10:24:00 AM
Description: Lakers guard Nick Young played well in his first game-action of the season.
Insight: He came off the bench and played 28 minutes, going 6-of-10 from the field and 3-of-5 from the line for 17 points, five rebounds, two 3-pointers, and one steal. Young will have a chance to chuck all season long.
 
11/18/2014 11:58:00 AM
Description: Lakers guard Nick Young is expected to return to action Tuesday against Atlanta.
Insight: Young can score, but he doesn't shoot for a high percentage or add much in other fantasy categories.
 
10/25/2014 5:01:00 PM
Description: Lakers guard Nick Young will still be a valuable fantasy player once he returns from his thumb injury.
Insight: He is probably still out the next 5-to-7 weeks, but will see time at small forward and shooting guard upon his return. Owners should target him towards the end of drafts, only if the leagues' rosters are updated weekly. Otherwise, leave Young undrafted, and look to acquire him via waivers, as the season moves on.
 
10/3/2014 10:23:00 PM
Description: Lakers guard Nick Young has a torn ligament in his right thumb.
Insight: He is expected to miss eight weeks with the injury, making him on pace to return a month into the season. Young will be the Lakers' sixth man, and will hold some late-round value in fantasy leagues.
 
7/11/2014 7:57:00 PM
Description: Nick Young has re-signed with the Lakers for four years and $21.5 million, according to Mike Bresnahan of the Los Angeles Times.
Insight: Young averaged 17.9 ppg last season, but he's not going to average 13.9 field-goal attempts, 5.5 3-point attempts and 4.5 free-throw attempts per game again. Because he doesn't offer anything besides scoring, he's not going to be a good fantasy option next season.
 
6/24/2014 9:08:00 PM
Description: Nick Young is opting out of his contract. He'll become a free agent on July 1st. SOURCE: ESPN Los Angeles
Insight: It's a no-brainer for Swaggy P, who will earn much more on the open market. The 29-year-old averaged a career-high 17.9 ppg in 64 appearances for the Lakers last season.
