Nick Young busted out of his slump in the second half on Wednesday, scoring all 18 of his points over the final two frames of a win over the Lakers.
Young went 6-for-13 from the floor and knocked down three triples, and he makes some sense as a short-term add for anyone in need of threes. Klay Thompson’s injury will keep him out for a week at least and the Dubs don’t have any other alternatives at shooting guard. It led to 31 minutes tonight and that kind of workload could sustain fantasy value if he gets even moderately hot from the field. Swaggy P’s potentially harmful percentages suggest that he’s better served for deeper leagues but if you really, really need triples Young might be worth an add regardless of league size.
