The Los Angeles Lakers will have Nick "Swaggy P" Young back in the lineup for the first time during the 2014-15 NBA season when the team opens up a three-game road trip on Tuesday against the Atlanta Hawks.

Young tore a ligament in his right thumb during training camp while guarding Kobe Bryant. The injury required surgery, bringing with it a six-to-eight week recovery time.
