The Lakers concluded their fourth day of training camp today, and by far the most alarming news to come out of it was yet another injury, this time to Nick Young.

For those wondering how he did it, or if you should ever attempt to steal the ball from Kobe Bryant, here are your answers to both:

It appears the Mamba's venom can even strike his own teammates. This adds to the rapidly cascading injury report for the Lakers, with Ryan Kelly's hamstring and Xavier Henry still waiting to begin practicing.

UPDATE:

Welp. Those hoping the Lakers would have better injury luck this year appear to be out of said luck.

Aside from that dose of doom and gloom, there were some positives to come out of camp today:

Lin and Randle playing well is good news at least! And for those hoping for some good things from Jordan Clarkson this year, Mike Trudell has got you covered there as well:

Hopefully for Lakers fans, the rookie can continue to drain from distance like that when the real games start.

Windsprint Update:

Were there windsprints today? It was a Byron Scott practice, so you know there were.

And finally, our first Mambacopter sighting of the season. Kobe is really back guys!

Have yourself a nice refreshing body armor in a helicopter to beat the heat, and have a good weekend everyone.
