Nick Young Not Playing In Goodman League Vs. Drew League Game, According To Report

The week-long confusion involving Nick Young's status in Saturday's Goodman League vs. Drew League summer exhibition has finally been cleared up. The Washington Wizards' guard will not play in the game due to "family stuff," according to Michael Lee of the Washington Post.

A source close to Young said on Friday that he would not be able to compete for the Drew League, along with Wizards teammate JaVale McGee, because of "family stuff."

"He's not going to make it," the source said.

Young's status had been up in the air ever since he skipped a Drew League scrimmage in Los Angeles earlier in the week. Following the scrimmage, Drew League commissioner Dino Smiley told several reporters that Young had been replaced by Minnesota Timberwolves rookie Derrick Williams. Smiley also said that Young was still upset that he didn't win Drew League MVP and was not returning his calls. Later, though, Young said he was not upset about that and was still on the roster as far as he knew.

However, now it appears he won't be. That leaves John Wall (Goodman League) and JaVale McGee (Drew League) as the only Wizards playing in the game.
