Nick Young needs more time

UPDATE: According to the Los Angeles Times, Young still needs at least another week for the left fractured knee cap to heal. Young has now missed 17 games and with just over two weeks remaining on the 2014-15 regular season schedule, he probably won't return before it ends.


Nick Young has been dealing with a sore left knee since Feb. 22 and Wednesday the Los Angeles Lakers revealed he has a small fracture to the knee cap. The plan is to have him meet with a doctor weekly to have the knee checked out to see how much it is healing. A return to the court for some part of the final four weeks of the season is uncertain.
