Lakers' Young leaves vs. Pelicans with apparent leg injury

Despite all the production and heroics of Davis thus far this season the Pelicans are one of the worst teams in the National Basketball Association thus far with a record of 6-12. Prior to Holiday's arrival November 18, Davis was shooting 48.5 percent.

"I just planted and tried to jump and I just felt like a sharp pain", Young said. "It doesn't really matter". Young's injury happened the same day that Julius Randle returned to the lineup after missing three games with a hip injury.

The Lakers determined Young has a strain in his right Achilles tendon, an injury that preceded the team's listless play in a 105-88 loss to the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday at Smoothie King Center.

The best players are either impossible to distract or, at the very least, they never let you know that they can hear them.

Young is averaging 14.1 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game. He's scored 36 or more in four of his last six games, breaking 40 twice in that span.

After meeting through most of the previous night, negotiators for baseball owners and players tried to reach an agreement Wednesday before their labor contract expires.

And when he has help, New Orleans can be tough to beat.


You would think I could take a picture like this every game of the season but it's the first time I've seen it.

Pelicans: Host the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday night. "Having him out there, it's just a calming effect and obviously having him out there with A.D. - that combination is really good for us". Holiday adds a whole new dimension to this team as a point guard who does a great job of running an offense while being disruptive on the other end of the court.

The 23-year-old forward is now averaging 32.1 points per game for the season, and leads the league's scoring standings from Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook (30.9 points per game). He posted 12 points on 6-of-9 shooting and 10 rebounds in what marked his fifth double-double of the season. One somewhat common denominator has been a stingier defense, with New Orleans holding four of the last seven opponents overall under 100 points. Lakers coach Luke Walton said the training staff has not ruled out Young playing against the Bulls.

Randle dominated the boards, hauling in a career-high 20 rebounds to go along with 13 points, two assists and two steals.

Notes: Lou Williams led the Lakers with 16 points off the bench.

"We'll take it night to night depending on who we're playing", Walton said.
