Young accrued eight points (3-6 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, three assists and one steal in 21 minutes during Tuesday's 108-103 victory over the Cavaliers. After averaging over 31 minutes per game over the last month, Young's playing time has dipped to under 25 minutes per contest over his last three outings. Nevertheless, Young has maintained a standard league-relevant position over those games, and a top 70 spot over the last two weeks of play. However, the recent returns of Lauri Markkanen (pelvis), Otto Porter (foot) and Wendell Carter (ankle) will likely continue to complicate this situation for the veteran.
Young posted six points (3-10 FG, 0-5 3Pt), seven rebounds, four steals, three assists and one block across 26 minutes during Friday's 108-102 loss to the Pacers. Young was ice cold shooting the rock, but he was able to contribute in other areas, notably swiping four steals -- his fourth time reaching that mark this season. Maybe more notably was his 26 minutes, which represented his smallest workload since Jan. 22. With Wendell Carter, Lauri Markkanen and Otto Porter all back from extended absences, Young's role may be reduced heading into the final stretch of the season, especially once their minutes restrictions are lifted.
Young contributed 13 points (6-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt), six rebounds, four assists, three steals and two blocks in 29 minutes during the Bulls' 115-108 loss to the T-Wolves on Wednesday. He has now recorded a steal in 13 straight games. Young returned to the bench, but put up nearly identical numbers to what he had been providing in a starting role. Young still possesses some short-term value with Zach LaVine (quad) out and multiple Bulls on minute restrictions.
Young isn't in the starting lineup Wednesday at Minnesota, K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago reports. The 31-year-old started the last 15 games but will return to the bench with Lauri Markkanen (pelvis) retaking the court Wednesday. Young averaged 13.9 points and 5.9 rebounds in 32.4 minutes during that stretch, but he could still see decent run while Markkanen remains on a minutes restriction.
Young accumulated 15 points (6-12 FG, 3-7 3Pt), five steals, three rebounds and two assists in 32 minutes during Saturday's 125-115 loss to the Knicks. Young secured a season-high five steals during Saturday's game, though it didn't result in a victory for the Bulls. He finished the month of February with averages of 14.8 points, 6.2 rebounds, 2.7 steals and 1.6 assists in 32.2 minutes.
