Fantasy Impact:

Although he’s confident he’ll be ready once the games start to be played, Young admitted it could take some time to get back into basketball shape. “Right now, I'm gonna say I'm not necessarily prepared because I haven't run, I haven't played. I haven't touched the ball or been able to," Young said. "But one thing I'll say is I will be prepared. That's something that I know for a fact. If we do end up coming back, there's gonna be some time where we get kind of like a mini-training camp started where we can get back in shape, play, and just kind of get back into the game flow. So if I'm not prepared right now, I will be when it returns." Young was averaging a whopping 29.6 points, 4.3 rebounds, 9.3 assists, and 1.1 steals in 35 minutes per game. He’s easily a top-5 point guard option in all fantasy league formats.
