Lakers forward Nick Young will get a CT scan on Monday after experiencing minimal improvement in the swelling in his his left knee.

The procedure will definitely keep him sidelined for both when the Lakers (17-47) host the Atlanta Hawks (51-14) on Sunday at Staples Center as well as when the Lakers play Monday in Golden State. Young had originally planned to travel with the Lakers to receive treatment. But Young will stay in Los Angeles because of his latest appointment.

Young has missed the past nine games because of his latest injury. He has averaged 13.4 points on a career-low 36.6 shooting percent clip, a mark that dipped in January (32.2 percent) and February (32.4 percent).
