Nick Young Out Approx. 8 Weeks

According to the LA Times, Nick Young is expected to miss approximately 6-8 weeks due to a torn ligament in his right thumb. Report has it that Young was playing defense on Kobe and suffered the injury while trying to steal the ball. The injury could sideline Young for as much as the first 17 regular season games, plus the preseason of course. Rough start for the purp & gold.
