Swaggy (Uncle?) P had been having the comeback season of the century, right up there with Arrow Season 5. Much like Season 4 of Arrow, Young’s previous campaigns had been disappointing. But this season has been different.
With a 13 PPG average and 41.4% from 3, Young has been great offensively as a scorer. In fact the points average would be higher if he did not leave his last game early. But the biggest surprise is Young playing consistent defense. This is why his loss was huge to the team, evidenced the Lakers 1-4 record without him. However he told Mark Medina of the OC Registrar, that he will return to on court work today, do a full practice Saturday, and will attempt a return next Monday, against Sacramento .
Getting Young back will be huge, and with D’Angelo Russell’s return imminent, the Lakers will have a lot more fire power, bringing some swag back.
