Apr. 2 10:14 PM PT11:14 PM MT12:14 AM CT1:14 AM ET5:14 GMT13:14 10:14 PM MST12:14 AM EST9:14 UAE07:141:14 ET12:14 AM CT4:14 - Young caught fire early and never stopped, making his first eight shots en route to a season-high 40 points on Tuesday night for Los Angeles. It was in a losing cause, however, as Portland won 124-112.
Analysis: Young was the last reserve off of coach Mike D'Antoni's bench. He made up for lost time, finishing 15 for 26 from the field.
Mar. 26 10:00 PM PT11:00 PM MT12:00 AM CT1:00 AM ET5:00 GMT13:00 10:00 PM MST12:00 AM EST9:00 UAE06:001:00 ET11:00 PM CT4:00 - Young scored 20 points as the Los Angeles Lakers dropped a franchise-record 51 points in the third quarter of their 127-96 victory over the New York Knicks on Tuesday night.
Analysis: Young had a solid game after his house was robbed during the Lakers' previous contest so it didn't affect his focus.
Mar. 10 9:39 PM PT10:39 PM MT11:39 PM CT12:39 AM ET4:39 GMT12:39 9:39 PM MST11:39 PM EST8:39 UAE05:390:39 ET10:39 PM CT3:39 - Young scored 21 points in his return from a knee injury Friday, a 117-107 home loss to Washington.

Jan. 19 8:57 PM PT9:57 PM MT10:57 PM CT11:57 PM ET4:57 GMT12:57 9:57 PM MST11:57 PM EST8:57 UAE05:5723:57 ET10:57 PM CT2:57 - Young scored a season-high 29 points Sunday in a win at Toronto.

Jan. 16 1:34 PM PT2:34 PM MT3:34 PM CT4:34 PM ET21:34 GMT5:34 2:34 PM MST4:34 PM EST1:34 UAE (+1)22:3416:34 ET3:34 PM CT19:34 - Young was suspended one game without pay by the NBA on Thursday for throwing a punch at Phoenix's Goran Dragic in the first half the previous night.
Analysis: Young, who threw the punch with 7:33 left in the second quarter of the Suns' 121-114 win, will miss the Lakers' game at Boston on Friday night.
Jan. 1 9:50 PM PT10:50 PM MT11:50 PM CT12:50 AM ET5:50 GMT13:50 10:50 PM MST12:50 AM EST9:50 UAE06:500:50 ET11:50 PM CT3:50 - Young scored 25 as the Los Angeles Lakers fell to the Milwaukee Bucks 94-79 Tuesday night.
Analysis: Young is a shining light in a terrible season as the LA native is averaging 16.5 points - his highest since three seasons ago for the Wizards.
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.
Dec. 16 8:16 PM PT9:16 PM MT10:16 PM CT11:16 PM ET4:16 GMT12:16 9:16 PM MST11:16 PM EST8:16 UAE05:1623:16 ET10:16 PM CT2:16 - Young had 23 points off the bench in Monday's 114-100 loss at Atlanta.
Analysis: While Young is averaging 17.1 points over the last nine games, he doesn't offer much in other categories. He remains a lackluster fantasy option.
Nov. 27 8:03 PM PT9:03 PM MT10:03 PM CT11:03 PM ET4:03 GMT12:03 9:03 PM MST11:03 PM EST8:03 UAE05:0323:03 ET10:03 PM CT2:03 - Young scored a season-high 26 points as Los Angeles beat the Brooklyn Nets 99-94 on Wednesday night.
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.
Nov. 23 10:45 PM PT11:45 PM MT12:45 AM CT1:45 AM ET6:45 GMT14:45 11:45 PM MST1:45 AM EST10:45 UAE07:451:45 ET12:45 AM CT4:45 - Young continues to play well for the Lakers, finishing with 21 points and three 3-pointers in a 103-95 win over Golden State on Friday.
