Lakers News: Nick Young Suffers Knee Injury; Out For Rest Of Game
[new_royalslider id=”137″]

The Los Angeles Lakers had eight available players heading into the matchup with the Cleveland Cavaliers in the second game of a three-game road trip, but that didn’t last long with Nick Young going down with a knee injury.

Young twisted his left knee against the Cavs toward the end of the first half and will not return according to Bill Oram of the OC Register:

Before Young went down with the knee, the Lakers had only Kendall Marshall and Chris Kaman along with Young to come off the bench. Losing Young takes the Lakers down to two players off the bench and extremely limited options if the team gets into foul trouble.

Young finished with six points, four assists and four rebounds in 18 minutes off the bench.
