The Los Angeles Lakers announced Wednesday that swingman Nick Young has a small fracture of his left kneecap.

Young is expected to recover completely through rest, and there’s a chance he returns to action this season (Young hasn’t played since Feb. 22).

In other Swaggy P news, he rocked a new hairstyle at practice Wednesday, and Lakers head coach Byron Scott gave it a thumbs down.

Per the LA Times:

“It looks like a bunch of worms,” said Scott. “When I first saw him, I just started cracking up laughing. I said, ‘You must have lost a bet.'”

 

“People with no hair wouldn’t understand,” retorted Young, who has a small fracture on his left kneecap that will not require surgery. “I would be mad at somebody that had hair, if I didn’t have hair.” […] “I just felt like it was time for a change,” said Young, who skirted questions about his balky knee. “I was watching ‘Kid and Play,’ then I was sitting home and watching ‘Booty Call’ — I was like ‘Jamie Foxx has a nice haircut I want to try. That’s the inspiration behind it.”

 

Jeremy Lin had no words to offer on Young’s look, although he did sigh and shake his head.
