    Warriors' Nick Young: Practices Saturday

    Nick Young (concussion) went through practice Saturday, Mark Medina of The San Jose Mercury News reports.Young missed Thursday's contest against the Mavericks due to a concussion, which he suffered during Monday's game against the Trail Blazers. While he has not yet been cleared to return to game action, going through a practice is a big step in the NBA's concussion protocol. The Golden State Warriors' next contest is Monday against the Lakers. Young should be considered questionable for the matchup until further notice.

    Warriors' Nick Young: Out Thursday vs. Mavericks

    Nick 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.

    Warriors' Nick Young: Doesn't practice Wednesday

    Nick 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 Golden State Warriors haven't given him an official designation though, so consider Young questionable for now.

    Warriors' Nick Young: Scores 17 off bench Friday

    Nick 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

    Nick 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 Golden State 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.

    Warriors' Nick Young: Pours in 15 in preseason finale

    Nick Young poured in 15 points (5-14 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 0-2 FT) and added two rebounds and one assist across 30 minutes in Friday's 117-106 preseason win over the Kings.It was a prototypical stat line for Young, who drew the start in place of Kevin Durant (illness). The 11-year veteran posted a preseason-high scoring total but did so solely on the strength of three-pointers, as he came up empty of five shot attempts from two-point range. Young shot not better than 37.5 percent in any of his three exhibitions, but he should still see a consistent role off the bench behind starting two-guard Klay Thompson this coming season.

    Nick Young will start at small forward for Friday's preseason finale against the Kings.Young, who has been quiet so far during during the preseason, will fill in for Kevin Durant (illness).

    Warriors' Nick Young: Sees first action as Warrior

    Nick Young scored six points (2-7 FG, 2-5 3Pt) and had one assist in 19 minutes Saturday in a preseason loss to the Nuggets.Young played a similar role Saturday to what his role will likely be during the regular season, a potential spark coming off the bench who is constantly hunting his shot. Barring injury, if Young is able to convert his threes at a fairly efficient clip, his role shouldn't change much throughout the season.

    Warriors' Nick Young: Agrees to deal with Warriors

    Nick Young and the Golden State Warriors came to terms Wednesday on a one-year, $5.2 million contract, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports.The Warriors were rumored to be among the suitors for Young, who experienced somewhat of a renaissance in Los Angeles last season, starting 60 games and shooting better than 40 percent from three for the first time in four seasons. The 32-year-old will slide in as a bench piece for the defending champions and should see his fair share of open looks from three on the best passing team in the league.
