Lakers' Nick Young (patella fracture) out at least two weeks

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

The injuries for the Los Angeles Lakers just keep coming. After getting Steve Nash, Steve Blake, and Jordan Farmar recently came back from injuries, shooting guard Nick Young suffered a couple of knee injuries Wednesday night in the Lakers' win over the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The team announced Thursday that Young will be out a minimum of two weeks with a non-displaced fracture of the patella and a bone bruise on his left knee. From the Lakers:

Lakers guard Nick Young, who injured his left knee in last night's game at Cleveland, had an MRI exam today in Philadelphia. Results of the MRI show that Young has been diagnosed with a non-displaced fracture of the patella and a bone bruise. He will be out a minimum of two weeks and will be re-evaluated at that time.

Young joins Pau Gasol, Xavier Henry, Jodie Meeks, and Kobe Bryant as the injured Lakers right now. Farmar left Wednesday's game with a cramp but isn't expected to miss any time due to injury. Nash's return is still in a limited capacity and Blake seems to be fully back.

The Lakers are currently 17-32.
