Nick Young returns to first practice since suffering injury

On first glance, Nick Young appeared his usual self shooting on the court. Except that was shooting and dribbling with his left hand as his right hand was in a sling.

It was Young’s first appearance since tearing the radial collateral ligament in his thumb guarding Kobe Bryant. He later joined the team for sprints at the end of practice as Byron Scott said it was encouraging to see him run despite the sling.

“It’s tough but I’m just fighting through it,”  said Young, who was wearing a noticeable cast on his hand. ”

Young is expected to miss 6 to 8 weeks and said the cast would not come off for at least five weeks.
