Nick Young (ankle) said he was healthy enough to play on Sunday, but head coach Byron Scott elected to keep him on the bench.
The Scoop: Young was clearly disappointed with being benched, and it appears there's some tension between him and Scott. When Young was asked about his relationship with Scott, he simply responded: "I don't know." For what it's worth, Young said that if up to him, he will play on Wednesday when the Lakers take on the Bucks, so we'll be monitoring his status closely. His return to the lineup will likely hurt the limited value of Jeremy Lin.
