Los Angeles Lakers guard Nick Young, aka, Swaggy P, has suffered a torn thumb ligament that will most likely cause him to miss out a large part of the 2014-15 season.

The Lakers have released the following statement:



Lakers guard Nick Young, who injured his right thumb yesterday in practice, underwent an MRI exam today. Results of the MRI showed that Young has a complete tear of the radial collateral ligament.

Dr. Steven Shin of the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic will perform surgery on Young’s thumb on Monday, and an estimate for Young’s return will be given at that time.
