  • Young (concussion) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Mavericks, Melissa Rohlin of the Mercury News reports. Young suffered a concussion in Monday's game against Portland and wasn't able to practice Wednesday, so his absence for Thursday's contest doesn't come as much of a surprise. He'll need to go through a controlled practice before being cleared for a return, so look for another update once he's done so. Young is averaging just 13.1 minutes per game this season, so his absence shouldn't have a drastic impact on the regular rotation. If anything, look for a guy like Patrick McCaw or Omri Casspi to pick up a few more minutes on the wing.

  • Young (concussion) sat out Wednesday's practice, Anthony Slater of The Athletic reports. Young suffered a concussion during Monday's matchup with the Trail Blazers and is currently going through the league-mandated protocol. Typically, a player needs to go through a controlled practice in order to be cleared, so Young's absence from practice Wednesday is certainly discouraging for his availability heading into Thursday's game against the Mavericks. The Warriors haven't given him an official designation though, so consider Young questionable for now.

  • Young will not return to Monday's game against the Trail Blazers after suffering a concussion. Young suffered a concussion in the third quarter of Monday's game against the Trail Blazers and will need to pass through the concussion protocol before he will be able to return. At this time, he should be considered questionable for the Warriors' game on Thursday as the severity of the concussion is unknown. Updates should come out throughout the week regarding his status. Prior to the injury, Young played 13 minutes and recorded 12 points and two rebounds.

  • Warriors' Nick Young: Scores 17 off bench Friday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Young scored 17 points (7-12 FG, 3-6 3Pt) while adding six rebounds in 19 minutes off the bench during Friday's 143-94 rout of the Bulls. Chicago's defense offered very little resistance against Golden State's shooters, and Young took advantage to post his best scoring total of the season since he dropped 23 in the opener. His bench role has become more consistent lately, but as yet the court time hasn't translated into consistent production, and the veteran guard is averaging 9.1 points, 2.4 boards, 1.9 three-pointers and 1.1 steals in 16.1 minutes over his last eight games.

  • Warriors' Nick Young: Shines in debut with Warriors
    By RotoWire Staff

    Young recorded 23 points (8-9 FG, 6-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT) and two rebounds across 26 minutes in Tuesday's 122-121 loss to the Rockets. Young shot the ball like a man possessed, drilling six three-pointers on the way to shooting 89 percent from the floor. Expectations were tempered for Young after he signed a one-year deal with the Warriors - his four-year stint in Los Angeles was largely a bust until he righted the ship somewhat last year, ultimately starting in 60 games for the Lakers. Coach Steve Kerr saw more gas in the 32-year-old veteran's tank, and though he's buried behind Klay Thompson on the depth chart, he is earning playing time with pure shooting and scrappy defensive play. He's a risky fantasy play as he sets up to be a streaky option, but he could be worth a flier n a GPP. Most seasonal formats are not an ideal fit for him currently.
