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.
