Lakers guard Nick Young is out at least 2 weeks after MRI shows he has a non-displaced fracture and bone bruise in left knee.
The Lakers have resigned Shawne Williams to a 10-day contract who will back up Wes Johnson at the small forward position in place of the injured Nick Young. Williams contributions will likely be inconsistent with Johnson getting the biggest bump in value, enough that he should now be owned in 12 team or deeper leagues. Young will be re-evaluated in two weeks, so this does not mean he will necessarily be back at the two week mark, but if you can at least stash Young until then.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Gary Neal will start Monday against the Clippers.
Neal will be starting in place of Kevin Martin, who is dealing with some sort of bug that has been going around. With the added minutes, Neal should be able to bring his nine point per game production up to more helpful levels, so give him a shot on Monday night, if you feel so inclined. Analysis: Dom Murtha
