      Lakers' Nick Young: Scores 22 off the bench Sunday

      Young scored a season-high 22 points (8-17 FG, 6-14 3Pt, 0-2 FT) while adding two rebounds in 28 minutes off the bench during Sunday's loss to the Pacers. Perhaps not surprisingly, Swaggy P celebrated Kobe Bryant's retirement announcement with his best game of the season, draining as many three-pointers Sunday as he had in the previous five games combined. Young's minutes and production will be limited as long as he's coming off the bench behind Kobe, but the starting two guard job should be his next season, making him a little more interesting in dynasty formats if you can stash him away on your bench.

      Lakers' Nick Young: Continues to come off bench Monday

      Young managed 11 points (4-9 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT) in his 25 bench minutes Monday against Phoenix. Young is starting the year out shooting the ball very well (43.5% FG, 43.4% 3Pt,) which are both above his career averages, and he's also perfect from the charity stripe through 11 games. Though he continues to shine in his bench role shooting the ball, his average is down to 10.3 points per game which is the lowest it's been in the past five seasons.

      Lakers' Nick Young: Scores team-high 17 points in Tuesday's loss

      Young scored 17 points (6-13 FG, 5-9 3Pt) over a season-high 26 minutes in Tuesday's 101-88 loss to the Heat. Swaggy P saw increased minutes with Kobe Bryant sitting Tuesday and was able to tie his season high point total of 17. Bryant just needed some rest, so Young's value will likely revert back to being low moving forward.

      Lakers' Nick Young: Pours in 17 points Friday

      Young amassed 17 points (5-11 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT), three assists, and two rebounds over 22 minutes in Friday's 132-114 loss to the Kings. Young has posted encouraging performances over the season's first two games, demonstrating that he can be a consistent scoring option off the bench. Before a fractured kneecap ended his 2014-15 campaign prematurely in late February, Young suffered through some inconsistent shooting performances while offering little else in the way of counting stats the majority of the time. Albeit in a small sample size, Young is scoring at a 53 percent clip on 10-of-19 shooting over the first pair of contests this season.
