Young (ankle) will sit out Wednesday's game against the Knicks.
Coach Brad Stevens indicated that Young was nearing a return, but he'll need at least one more night off for additional recovery. Once healthy, Young will slot in as a deep reserve on the wing, likely struggling to see playing time in competitive contests.
Young (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Hornets, Adam Himmelsbach of The Boston Globe reports.
Young has been dealing with a right ankle sprain in recent weeks and despite making progress over the weekend by taking part in some individual drills, he'll sit out yet again on Monday. There's a chance he's cleared in time for Wednesday's tilt with the Knicks, but even when at full strength, Young shouldn't have a drastic impact on the team's regular rotation.
Young (ankle) was able to do some shooting on the court prior to Sunday's practice, Jay King of MassLive.com reports.
Young has been nursing a right ankle sprain for the past two weeks, but his activity on the court Sunday -- even in a light capacity -- suggests he's making progress. His absence from the contact portion of practice, however, likely means that he'll remain sidelined for Monday's game against the Hornets, though a return later in the week is feasible.
Young (ankle) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Hawks, Scott Souza of the Providence Journal reports.
Young didn't even make the trip to Atlanta for the contest, but the Celtics are holding out hope that he may be able to return at some point next week. Once the ankle injury is behind him, Young isn't likely to be included in coach Brad Stevens' rotation, so his five-game absence thus far hasn't affected the minutes distribution on the wing.
Young (ankle) is expected to miss at least another week.
Young continues to nurse an ankle injury, and this latest update would seem to rule him out for all three of the Celtics' games next week, meaning the earliest he could play would be Tuesday, Jan. 16 versus the Hornets. That said, the Kentucky product has had trouble cracking the rotation and likely wouldn't make an impact, even if he were healthy.
