The Lakers injury woes continue this season, with Ronnie Price and Nick Young the latest Lakers to miss time. Nick Young will miss tonight's game vs Utah, the team announced.

Averaging 13.4 points in 23.8 minutes, Young's absence leaves the team down to just Jordan Clarkson, Jeremy Lin, and Wayne Ellington in the backcourt, all of whom will likely now see major minutes tonight and going forward. The team also announced Ronnie Price's surgery for his elbow injury was...

Portland Imitates Dolphins, Attacks Nick Young

Between fines, poor shooting, and dolphin attacks, Nick Young has had a rough few days. So it's nice to see him break through with an And-1 here: He has scored 7 consecutive points now, so this might be one of those nights for him.

Nick Young not worried about foot injury

PORTLAND -- No injury is timely, but Nick Young was at least glad that he'll have some time to rest. The Los Angeles Lakers reserve guard suffered what the team called a "peroneal tendon strain" in his left foot -- meaning he strained a tendon near his ankle -- Wednesday in his team's 102-86 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers here at the Moda Center. Neither Young nor Lakers coach Byron Scott said they were sure how long Young would be sidelined, but Young didn't think the injury was all that serious.
