Swaggy P sprained his finger on a layup attempt during the Lakers' victory over the Nets.

Nick Young suffered a sprained left ring finger during the Los Angeles Lakers 99-94 victory over the Brooklyn Nets Wednesday. The injury occurred during the fourth quarter when Young drove in for a layup against Paul Pierce. Young immediately underwent x-rays after the game and was officially diagnosed with a sprained proximal inter phalangeal joint, per Lakers reporter Mike Trudell.

Young will try to play through the injury, but will be required to wear a splint on his hand:

On the bright side, at least it's his non-shooting hand. Here's the play which clearly shows Young grabbing his hand after missing the attempt:

Young has been playing well off the bench for the Lakers and is the team's second-leading scorer with 14.1 points per game. He scored a season-high (and game-high) 26 points against the Nets, shooting 50 percent from the field and making four of his six three-point attempts.
