Sixth man Nick Young returned to the lineup for the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday night pouring in 21 points off the bench in a losing effort against the Washington Wizards. Although Young’s spark and presence off the bench was a welcome sight, the fiery veteran got into another altercation on the floor, but was not ejected this time around.

In an attempt to box out Young, Drew Gooden locked arms with Young and yanked him violently from the key. Young reacted as most would by trying to get in the face of Gooden, but before he could get too heated with the veteran forward, Jordan Hill went after Marcin Gortat to get him out of the altercation.

Young spoke to the media after the game and was asked about the altercation with Gooden. Young said the following according to Lakers Nation reporter Serena Winters:

As a result of their actions, Hill and Gooden were ejected from the game and might be disciplined by the league. Young was able to continue playing and will more than likely avoid any punishment from the NBA unlike the first time when he was suspended for one game after an altercation against the Phoenix Suns.
