James Young (back) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game vs. the Bulls.

Young has missed two consecutive contests due to the bad back. Even if he is active on Sunday, the fantasy impact will be minimal, as he is averaging just 8.0 minutes per game this season.
Mar 11 - 1:12 PM

James Young (back) will not play against the Nuggets on Friday.

He's still out with his sore lower back. Young has been better than expected this year and get minutes on occasion, but he's still not on the fantasy radar.

James Young (sore lower back) is listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Nuggets.

Young did not play Wednesday vs. Golden State due to the back injury. There is only minimal fantasy impact related to Young's availability, as he has appeared in just 25 games all season, averaging 8.0 minutes per contest.

James Young (bruised tailbone) will not play vs. Golden State on Wednesday.

Jaylen Brown, Jae Crowder and Gerald Green stand to pick up a few extra minutes in Young's absence, but he doesn't typically play enough for this to have a big impact.
Mar 8 - 9:04 PM

James Young scored five points with one rebound and one 3-pointer in nine minutes against the Bulls on Thursday.

He continues to get some crunch-time minutes. Yeah, this is due to some injuries, but Young was the likely the last player to make the roster back in October. He's always been on thin ice with the Celtics fan base, especially when fellow shooting guard Rodney Hood was picked after him. While Young gets some props, he has almost no fantasy value.
Feb 16 - 10:29 PM

James Young scored a season-high 10 points on 4-of-7 shooting with a pair of triples in 15 minutes vs. the Jazz on Saturday.

The Celtics were missing Avery Bradley (Achilles) and Jae Crowder (personal), while Jaylen Brown left the game after the first half with a hip injury. Young made the most of his opportunity, but he had scored a total of 26 points on the season prior to tonight which sums up his fantasy value. Ignore this.
Feb 12 - 12:28 AM

James Young played through an ankle injury and had five points and two rebounds on 1-of-4 shooting in 13 minutes on Tuesday.

This was his first action since way back on Nov. 18 and his fantasy outlook isn't great. He belongs on waivers in even the deepest of leagues.

Jan 15 - 1:55 PM

James Young didn't travel with the Celtics for Friday's game against the Hawks

He's dealing with an ankle injury and the fact he's not traveling could be a sign that he's still a few days away from playing. Not that most of you would have noticed if he were actually healthy.
