Lakers G Young sidelined by calf injury
CHICAGO (AP) Los Angeles Lakers guard Nick Young is expected to miss two to four weeks with a strained right calf muscle.
Young was hurt in the first quarter Tuesday night in a 105-88 loss at New Orleans. He had an MRI on Wednesday in Chicago that revealed the injury.
It's another big blow for the Lakers, who already were without guard D'Angelo Russell due to a sore left knee. Forward Julius Randle missed three games with a hip injury before returning against the Pelicans.
Young is averaging 13.3 points in 18 games. He is shooting 41.8 percent (46 for 110) from 3-point range.
