Lakers Injury News: Nick Young Out Two Weeks With Knee Fracture

The hits keep on coming as the Lakers injury-filled season continues. The latest victim is the Nick Young, who according to Lakers Reporter Mike Trudell, will be out a minimum of two weeks thanks to a non-displaced fracture in his left knee:

This injury now leaves the Lakers without its three leading scorers on the season as Jodie Meeks is out at least another game with his sprained ankle while Pau Gasol is out through the All-Star break with a groin issue.

Young injured his knee in the second quarter of last night’s victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers. Young was one of two Lakers to not finish the game due to injury last night as Jordan Farmar was lost due to leg cramps.

With Meeks and Jordan Hill injured in Tuesday’s loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves, that makes four injuries just as Steve Nash, Steve Blake, and Farmar made their returns to the court.

The team has decided to re-sign Shawne Williams to a 10-day contract in the wake of this latest injury.

    Didn’t they say the same about Xavier? Damn!!!

    Per Mike Bresnahan: Lakers sign Shawne Williams to 10-day contract

    • Daryl Peek

      Haven’t been able to confirm this but I figured Williams would be brought back like this.

      • Jim213

        No diss to S Williams but I’ve would’ve gone with Manny Harris but he would’ve needed to be signed for the rest of the season given the max of two 10 day contracts allowed for a player.

        • Gregory Choa

          Yeah, believe it or not, I think the Lakers are out of roster spots…right? Signing Williams (over say another G/F type) kinda makes sense given how thin we are up front with Pau out. I mean, seriously, I saw Ryan Kelly playing center for much of the game last night…and thought he did pretty well down there all things considered.

          • Daryl Peek

            Couple that with the possible Gasol trade. I liked Manny but we will have a super log jam at guard/SF when Young, X and Kobe come back. Williams makes way more sense and this was likely the plan given the Gasol talks.

          • e3bonz

            Pau is going nowhere…

        • Daryl Peek

          Think about it? Meeks will be back next week. No need for Harris at all. I like Manny too.

  • LakersHeatBeef

    What a bad nightmare this season is,in the voice of MDA run run run!SMFH!

  • Daryl Peek

    WOW! Wouldn’t be so bad if Meeks was still playing or we still had Manny Harris. This mess is ridiculous!

  • Fozzy Chicas

    Wow!! what a season!! and let me guess farmar is out for another 2 to 3 weeks

  • Osvaldo Monge

    Blame MD’A system…

    • Danny E. Pagan

      lol that’s sarcasm right?

      • Osvaldo Monge

        Pure”s

  • Lakers Fan

    The only glimmer of hope we have is to look forward to a high draft pick and a nice amount of cap space.

  • LakersHeatBeef

    Hey i find myself watching lots of 2009 and 2010 Lakers playoffs and championship games,what a hell of a time to backtrack my DVD 4 years back to watch Game 7 of the Lakers beating the hated Celtics.Yeah it’s rock bottom i am stuck living in the past since this season has been so injury hit and awful.SMH!

  • LakersHeatBeef

    Yeap i hit backtrack on the DVR to watch the Lakers playoffs,saved the games since the Lakers 2009 and 2010 playoffs and championships i still watch those games on my old DVR.Yeah this is crazy and a bad season my DVR has all those games on it from the glory days of the Lakers.SMH!

    • e3bonz

      Nothing wrong with watching some older games..

  • LakersHeatBeef

    This is just sad new frankly.Get well soon Nick Young.

  • hookedonnews

    Off subject but did anyone see that 6th foul by Kaman last night? That had to be one of the dumbest 6th fouls I have ever seen, especially considering the roster situation. That foul called on Sacre where MDA went postal was ridiculous. He didn’t even touch the guy. Thought there were a lot of bad calls.

  • Johnnyboy

    Did Mike dantoni have the same injury problems with the suns and knicks? If not then it’s something deeper than MDT’s system
