Young has struggled all year long in his second season with the Lakers, but had a solid performance in the win over the Celtics. Young finished with 19 points on 5-of-9 shooting helping lead the team to victory in overtime.

Although the swelling in Young’s knee is concerning for obvious reasons, Lakers trainer Gary Vitti isn’t overly concerned, according to Lakers Nation reporter Serena Winters:
