With Thursday’s news that Nick Young will miss a minimum of two weeks with a non-displaced fracture of the patella and a bone bruise, the Lakers have re-signed former F Shawne Williams to a 10-day contract.

Williams averaged 5.4 pts and 4.5 rebs in 32 games for the Lakers this season.

Williams will rejoin the team late Thursday night in Philadelphia, and be available for the Lakers’ game against the 76ers on Friday.
