As reported by Brian Robb at Boston.com, at today's first practice for the Celtics summer league team, Young was sidelined because of lingering effects from the accident. At this point there is no word as to whether or not Young will be ready for the summer league opener on Saturday against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Summer league coach Jay Larranaga said the team will be cautious with Young and Danny Ainge and coach Brad Stevens will make the final determination as to when Young will play.
Several prominent names, including Kelly Olynyk, Chris Johnson, Chris Babb, Phil Pressey and rookie Marcus Smart are part of the Celtics summer league roster.
Young played in 40 games during his only season at Kentucky. He averaged 14.3 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.7 assists per game. He shot only 40.7 percent from the floor and 34.9 percent from three-point range, so it's important Young can see some action this summer to work on his shooting.
