Guard Nick Young Returns to Lineup for Lakers


Lakers starting guard Nick Young returned after missing seven games with a strained calf. Young finished with 15 points on 6-of-11 shooting in about 20 minutes.

“It felt good,” Young said, “but I got a little winded, felt a little achy, body-wise, but I think I’ll be all right.” Like Russell, Young also played on a minutes restriction, but Lakers coach Luke Walton said each player will play more in the coming days. The Lakers (10-16) have lost six straight and begin a seven-game road trip Monday in Sacramento.
