Lakers News: Nick Young Says He ‘Could Be Out A While’
[new_royalslider id=”137″]

The Los Angeles Lakers have dealt with injury problems all season long and it appears that those problems will continue with Nick Young possibly set to miss more time.

Along with Young missing the next two games on the road, the leading scorer off the bench may miss even more time according to Bill Oram of OC Register:

Before going down with the knee injury against the Cleveland Cavaliers earlier this month, Young was arguably the best player on the team outside of Pau Gasol. Young has proven to be a valuable asset off the bench for head coach Mike D’Antoni providing instant offense.

With Young potentially on the shelf longer than two games, the Lakers will continue to lean on Gasol and newcomers Kent Bazemore and MarShon Brooks offensively. Jodie Meeks and Wes Johnson have also provided a boost for the Lakers offensively at times, but Young has been the go-to guy with Kobe Bryant still recovering from his knee injury.
