Young (back) is available to play in Sunday's game against the Bulls, Scott Souza of the Providence Journal reports. Young appears to be over the back injury that kept him out of the Celtics' last two games, but it's unclear if he'll be able to claim a rotation spot Sunday. Gerald Green, who previously missed time with a heel injury of his own, reclaimed a spot on the team's second unit while Young was out.
Young (back) is listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Nuggets. Young was sidelined for Wednesday's win over the Warriors with a sore lower back, but he'll have a better shot at suiting up Friday. Even so, Young likely won't be in store for much playing time if he's able to suit up Friday. He's averaging just 8.0 minutes per game over 25 appearances on the season.
Young (back) will not play in Wednesday's game against the Warriors, Jay King of MassLive.com reports. Young is tending to a bruised tailbone. While the severity of which isn't clear, his next chance to play will come Friday against the Nuggets.
Young (coach's decision) scored three points (1-4 FG, 1-4 3Pt) to go with one rebound and one steal in 13 minutes during Monday's 116-102 loss to the Clippers. After failing to play in Sunday's loss to the Suns, Young likely reentered the rotation Monday because Gerald Green didn't suit up for the second half of the back-to-back set following a recent hip injury. Young did little to distinguish himself while Green was out with the injury and has gone 1-of-7 from the field over his last four appearances, so it wouldn't be surprising if he dropped back out of the rotation Wednesday against the Warriors.
Young notched 10 points (4-7 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 0-1 FT) in 15 minutes in Saturday's 112-104 win over the Jazz. After seeing a total of just seven minutes over the previous seven contests, Young received his first double-digit minutes allotment since Jan. 24. He proved highly efficient with the extra playing time, posting only his second double-digit scoring effort of the season, as well his second game with multiple threes. While the extra run was encouraging to see, Young's playing time remains highly volatile, even with Avery Bradley's (Achilles) extended absence.
