Lakers News: Nick Young Suspended For Friday’s Game Against Celtics

Nick YoungAfter an altercation last night with Phoenix Suns players Alex Len and Goran Dragic, Los Angeles Lakers guard Nick Young will be suspended one game without pay.

Young was fouled hard on his way to the basket and was hit across the face by Len, causing him to hit the ground hard. The USC product got up off the floor and retaliated, throwing a punch at Dragic and causing friction within the Lakers locker room. According to the Lakers official Twitter account, Young won’t play tomorrow night in Boston against the Celtics:

Already shorthanded without guards Steve Blake, Steve Nash, Kobe Bryant and Jordan Farmar, the Lakers called up Manny Harris from the D-League in time for tomorrow nights game. In his short time with the Lakers, Young has instantly become a fan favorite and he’s backing it up as their leading scorer.

After the game, Young was upset that none of his teammates came to his aid as he was surrounded by five Suns players. Kendall Marshall thought Young should’ve used more restraint as the Lakers lost their sixth game in a row and 12 of their last 13 games.

Len was fined $15,000 for his Flagrant 2 foul while Marcus Morris was fined $25,000 for escalating the situation.
