Nick Young jokes that he wants to egg C.J. Miles' home

PHILADELPHIA -- Nick Young wants to sponsor an egging raid.

He's unhappy that Cleveland guard C.J. Miles fouled him Wednesday, causing a knee injury that will cost Young at least two weeks.

"We need to go find C.J. Miles, man, and do something to him," Young said Friday, smiling. "We've got to go throw some eggs, do something at his house. I've got to do something. He's got to feel my pain."

Young was then reminded that singer Justin Bieber could face felony charges for allegedly causing $20,000 in damage by egging a neighbor's house in Calabasas.

"I forgot, I forgot," Young said, telling a reporter that he should egg Miles' house instead of Young.

Miles grabbed Young from behind while the Lakers forward was going in for a fastbreak layup attempt in the second quarter of the Lakers' 119-108 victory Wednesday.

A foul was called and the injury occurred when Young landed unsteadily under the basket. A day later, an MRI exam revealed a non-displaced patellar fracture and bone bruise in his left knee.

Young's knee will be reevaluated later this month. He was the Lakers' second-leading scorer, averaging 16.9 points a game.

The Lakers (17-32) will again be short-handed for their game Friday against Philadelphia.

Steve Nash is scheduled to play on the day he turns 40, but Jordan Farmar is to sit out because of soreness stemming from leg cramps Wednesday against Cleveland.

Steve Blake might not play because he sustained a bruised thigh against Cleveland.

Jordan Hill will play against Philadelphia after sitting out Wednesday's game because of a strained neck.

Nash said he realized the novelty of an NBA point guard still playing at age 40.

"It's great to be known for being old," he said.
