MRI exams turned out negative surrounding both Nick Young’s sore left knee and Robert Sacre’s sore left foot, leaving their status as questionable for Wednesday’s game against the Utah Jazz (20-34) at EnergySolutions Arena.
The Lakers do not consider the injury serious and they still have time before Tuesday’s practice to further assess if they will participate.
Young did not practice on Monday after the feeling pain in his left knee during the Lakers’ win on Sunday over Boston. Scott said that Sacre tried to practice before feeling a “sharp pain” in his left foot.
Young has averaged 13.4 points on 36.6 percent shooting in 23.8 minutes off the bench. Sacre has averaged 4.4 points and 3.5 rebounds in 16.2 minutes. He has also averaged 6.8 points and 6.1 rebounds through the past 12 games as a starter.
