Young accumulated 16 points (7-9 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 1-3 FT), four rebounds, one assist and one steal across 26 minutes during Sunday's 116-91 loss to the Raptors. Young regained his touch from the field Sunday after going a combined 3-for-10 over the previous two outings. While he isn't known for his scoring -- averaging just 10.7 points across 30.3 points per game on the season -- Young provides a solid combination of rebounds (5.8 per game) and steals (1.7 per game) while nailing 38.9 percent of his 1.9 three-point attempts per game.
Young tallied four points (2-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt), six rebounds, one assist and one steal across 37 minutes in a 87-81 loss to the Knicks on Tuesday. Despite receiving a huge swath of minutes, Young was practically invisible during his time on the court, at least on the offensive end. His four shot attempts were tied for his third-fewest of the season, preventing him from extending his streak of double-digit scoring to four games. Even after the poor showing, it's encouraging to at least see Young surpass 30 minutes for the third time in four games. The forward has largely struggled after returning from a wrist injury following the All-Star break, but his 60 percent mark from the field during this four-game span suggests he's turned a corner.
Young scored 18 points (9-14 FG, 0-2 FT) with eight rebounds and one steal across 34 minutes in Wednesday's 115-98 win against the Pistons. It was Young's most productive outing since he dropped 19 points in Salt Lake City against the Jazz back on Jan. 21. He entered Wednesday's game with just 22 total points over his past five outings. He'll need a lot more games like Wednesday before he re-gains the trust of fantasy owners again.
Young returned from an eight-game absence to provide 10 points (5-7 FG), five rebounds, one assist, one steal, and one block across 26 minutes during Friday's 102-92 victory over the Grizzlies. Young has been a staple for the Pacers at the power forward position this season, averaging 11.5 points on 52.2 percent shooting, 6.1 rebounds, and 1.7 steals across 31.1 minutes per game. He's also been a surprising help stretching the floor for the Pacers, hitting a career-high 39.6 percent of his attempts from three after knocking down only 23.3 percent of his attempts last season with the Nets. While he isn't a premier fantasy option, he provides a nice combination of steals and threes from the power forward slot while getting consistent minutes.
Young (wrist) will start in Friday's tilt against the Grizzlies. After missing the Pacers' last eight games due to a wrist sprain, Young will take the floor Friday. His return will send Kevin Seraphin back to the bench.
