Young (illness) will be active and available to play in Tuesday's game against the Clippers, Serena Winters of LakersNation.com reports. Young was held out of Sunday's game against the Cavaliers with an illness, but it appears he's feeling better after a few extra days off. However, despite being active, coach Luke Walton wouldn't necessarily commit to actually playing Young, so there's a chance he sees very limited minutes, or none at all. With Jordan Clarkson and D'Angelo Russell starting at the two guard spots, Young is slated to come off the bench in his return.
Young (illness) was a full participant in practice Monday. The flu bug appears to be behind Young after he missed Sunday's loss to the Cavaliers with the illness. It sounds like he'll be available Tuesday against the Clippers barring any setbacks, but Young will have to settle for bench duties with coach Luke Walton deciding to stick with D'Angelo Russell as the starting shooting guard for a second straight game after Russell exploded for a career-high 40 points Sunday. As a result, it may be difficult for Young to see more than 20 minutes Tuesday, if he's not held out of the rotation entirely.
Young (illness) will not play during Sunday's tilt against the Cavaliers, Mark Medina of the L.A. Daily News reports. Young has come down with gastroenteritis and will be sidelined for Sunday's tilt. In his absence, David Nwaba and Jordan Clarkson will likely see additional run.
Young has the flu and is questionable for Sunday's tilt against the Clippers. Young has started the past two games -- averaging 8.0 points, 3.0 rebounds, and 1.0 assist across 26.5 minutes per game -- but his status for Sunday's game is in jeopardy due to the flu. If he's unable to go, coach Luke Walton may opt to start David Nwaba at the shooting guard slot.
Young finished with 16 points (6-11 FG, 4-8 3Pt) with three rebounds and two assists across 29 minutes in Friday's 107-103 loss against the Bucks. Young made it back from a sprained left ring finger and the injury did not appear to affect his shooting, as he was solid from behind the arc. Despite the return, be careful with Young. Head coach Luke Walton has said he plans to mix and match lineups down the stretch while likely looking more at younger personnel. That doesn't bode well for Young's fantasy outlook for the remainder of the 2016-17 campaign.
