Young will be out indefinitely after the tragic death of his mother, ESPN 1500's Darren Wolfson reports.
It's certainly a terrible situation in Young's personal life, and he will be given all the time he needs to grieve away from the team. Anthony Bennett and Gorgui Dieng figure to see extend run in Young's absence.

Young played his most minutes of the season Friday against the Magic, scoring 13 points (6-15 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 0-2 FT).
Young has now logged a combined 75 minutes in his past two games. Anthony Bennett played in less than a minute Friday while Young pulled down four rebounds and tacked on an assist and a steal. Young owners should feel optimistic about his playing time going forward with the Timberwolves.

Young has passed the baseline concussion testing, Andy Greder of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports
Young suffered a neck strain in Saturday's game against Chicago in a collision with Jimmy Butler. Young appears to be okay, especially with the news that he does not have lingering symptoms for a concussion. He will have a few more days to recover from his neck strain since the Wolves do not play again until Wednesday.
