Lakers' Nick Young: Leaves game Tuesday with Achilles strain

Young suffered a right Achilles strain during the first quarter of Tuesday's game against the Pelicans and will not return, Mark Medina of L.A. Daily News reports.

Young is slated to undergo an MRI on the Achilles Wednesday, which should give us a better indication of a potential absence moving forward. He wasn't able to put any weight on the leg following the injury and was carried to the locker room, so it could be an extended absence for Young. He played just two minutes Tuesday before suffering the injury.
