Lakers News: Nick Young Out Two Weeks With Knee Fracture
Video: Kemba Walker Channels Inner Nick Young With Premature Celebration

The hits keep on coming as the Laker’s injury-filled season continues. The latest victim is the Nick Young, who according to Lakers reporter Mike Trudell, will be out a minimum of two weeks thanks to a non-displaced fracture in his left knee:

This injury now leaves the Lakers without its three leading scorers on the season as Jodie Meeks is out at least another game with his sprained ankle while Pau Gasol is out through the All-Star break with a groin issue.

Young injured his knee in the second quarter of last night’s victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers. Young was one of two Lakers to not finish the game due to injury last night as Jordan Farmar was lost due to leg cramps.

With Meeks and Jordan Hill injured in Tuesday’s loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves, that makes four injuries just as Steve Nash, Steve Blake, and Farmar made their returns to the court.

The team has decided to re-sign Shawne Williams to a 10-day contract in the wake of this latest injury.
