Nick Young To Undergo MRI Examination On Swollen Knee

The Los Angeles Lakers were finally healthy last night (kind of, anyway) though there are now two new possible injuries on the horizon.

According to the official Lakers Twitter account, Nick Young will undergo an MRI examination on his swollen knee today.

Additionally, Robert Sacre missed today’s practice session due to an issue with his foot.


While Kobe Bryant, Julius Randle and Steve Nash are all out for the season, the Lakers were relatively healthy on Sunday night as 12 players took to the floor during the purple and gold’s overtime win versus the Boston Celtics.

Young, who scored 19 points on 5-for-9 shooting last night, recently missed a number of games due to an ankle injury.
