Nick Young, Julius Randle probable for Lakers on Christmas

Thursday December 24th, 2015

Los Angeles Lakers guard Nick Young and forward Julius Randle are probable to play on Christmas day against the Los Angeles Clippers.

Young missed the Lakers’ loss to Oklahoma City on Wednesday with an upset stomach, but practiced Thursday and is expected to be ready for Christmas, reports Mark Medina of the Los Angeles Daily News. Randle saw a foot specialist for his sore ankle but is listed as probable, the team announced.

Young is averaging nine points and 1.4 rebounds per game for Los Angeles this season. He is shooting 40% from the field. 

Randle, who was recently removed from the starting lineup, has averaged 11.5 points and 9.5 rebounds per game over 28 games.
