Lakers forward Nick Young only completed treadmill work during Wednesday’s practice, leading coach Byron Scott to provide a factual albeit biting assessment on how much Young’s sprained right ankle has healed. What is Young’s status for when the Lakers (12-34) host the Chicago Bulls (30-17) at Staples Center?
“Questionable,” Scott said. “Like everything regarding Nick Young, it’s questionable.”
Young missed the Lakers’ 98-92 loss on Tuesday to the Washington Wizards after spraining his right ankle during Monday’s practice. Before that, Young played only nine minutes in Sunday’s loss to Houston after Scott became upset with his effort and body language. Young has averaged 14.1 points per game, but he has shot at only a 37.3 percent clip.
