Nick Young cleared to play against Lakers

OAKLAND Nick Young will be able to play against the Lakers in Los Angeles on Monday.

Young sustained a concussion in a game last Monday against the Portland Trail Blazers, and went through the NBAs concussion protocol before being cleared Sunday.

The shooting guard, who is in his first season with the Warriors, played for the Lakers from 2013-2017, including playing alongside Kobe Bryant before he retired following a 20-season career in 2016.

Bryants jerseys (No. 8 and 24) will be retired during a ceremony at halftime Monday.
