Young Injured at Draft Workout

Sam Young got a little banged up in a workout for the Toronto Raptors.

Young, who is preparing for the June 25 NBA Draft, required a brief visit to a Toronto hospital but is expected to return to workouts later this week.

He was hurt while being tested for his vertical leap. He twisted his body as he leapt, and a screw on the vertical-leap pole pierced his left arm. Rather than risk tearing any muscle, the Raptors personnel removed the screw from the pole, left it in Young's arm and took him to the hospital to have it dislodged.


That sounds kind of painful, but it doesn't seem as if the injury is too serious. To me, the ironic part was Sam getting hurt on the vertical leap...if there's anything that he excels at, that's it.
