Dec. 28 9:39 PM PT10:39 PM MT11:39 PM CT12:39 AM ET5:39 GMT13:39 10:39 PM MST12:39 AM EST9:39 UAE06:390:39 ET11:39 PM CT3:39 - Young had another strong offensive game with 21 points on 10-of-17 shooting in Friday's loss to Utah.

Dec. 26 9:16 PM PT10:16 PM MT11:16 PM CT12:16 AM ET5:16 GMT13:16 10:16 PM MST12:16 AM EST9:16 UAE06:160:16 ET11:16 PM CT3:16 - Young scored 20 in Los Angeles' loss to Miami on Christmas.
Analysis: Young continued his scoring uptick, averaging 20.8 points over his last six games, though he's still not the most efficient player in fantasy. He was just 7 of 18 from the floor, marking the third straight game he shot worse than 40 percent.
Dec. 21 9:44 PM PT10:44 PM MT11:44 PM CT12:44 AM ET5:44 GMT13:44 10:44 PM MST12:44 AM EST9:44 UAE06:440:44 ET11:44 PM CT3:44 - Young had 25 points in Friday's 104-91 win over the Wolves.
Analysis: It seems like folly to say that a solid fantasy pick-up could be Young. Yet you may make your holidays jolly by nabbing him if such a trade could be swung. The Lakers are just looking for healthy bodies and Young fits the bill.

Analysis: Pretty soon, Kobe Bryant will be back. Young will be an afterthought then but for one night, he was a star in Brooklyn against the hyped-up Nets.
