Mark Medina and J.P. Hoorsnstra of InsideSoCal.com reported on Nick Young's recovery:
Lakers forward Nick Young emerged onto the floor, the removed cast that had supported his surgically repaired thumb for the past five weeks allowing him to complete tasks he once enjoyed. Young dribbled between his legs. He hoisted three pointers. Young flashed his signature smile through it all.
But the Lakers will still have to wait before Young will show that in a game. Lakers coach Byron Scott hopes that Young will begin practicing in full contact scrimmaging next week, which coincides with the Lakers’ original timeline that he’d stay out for eight weeks.

Original Text
Los Angeles Lakers guard Nick Young has suffered a thumb injury that will likely cause him to miss significant time at the start of the 2014-15 season.
The Lakers have released a statement on Young's injury:
Lakers guard Nick Young, who injured his right thumb yesterday in practice, underwent an MRI exam today. Results of the MRI showed that Young has a complete tear of the radial collateral ligament.
Dr. Steven Shin of the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic will perform surgery on Young’s thumb on Monday, and an estimate for Young’s return will be given at that time.
Mark Medina of the Los Angeles Daily News passed along information from Young's agent about surgery and how long Young might be sidelined:
Last year, Young was a bright spot during an otherwise underwhelming season for the Lakers. The 29-year-old averaged 17.9 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game during the 2013-14 season.
