Nick Young (illness) practices Monday for Lakers

Los Angeles Lakers guard/forward Nick Young (illness) was a full participant during Monday's practice. What It Means: Young is on track to return from a one-game absence on Tuesday against the Los Angeles Clippers. David Nwaba and Corey Brewer will see less minutes as a result.
