D'Angelo Russell has lost the trust of some teammates after a video surfaced of a conversation he had with Nick Young.
The video, which is believed to have come to light last week via the Twitter account of a celebrity gossip site, shows Russell filming Young while asking questions about Young being with other women. In the video, Young does not appear to realize he's being taped.
Young got engaged to Australian rapper Iggy Azalea last summer.
Various Lakers officials are aware of the issue and are dismayed with Russell, sources say, but to this point they have chosen not to intervene.
"Right now," one source said, "they're handling it by isolating him."
Said one team insider: "This was a prank gone wrong and a mistake by [Russell], and he has to be held accountable, but I would hope he isn't overly criticized for it."
At a recent breakfast meeting, one source said, no Laker would sit with Russell at his table. The source added that, in another instance, Russell came into the locker room and sat next to Lou Williams, who got up and walked away.
"It's bad," one team source told ESPN.com's Ramona Shelburne. "It's about as bad as it can get. There were trust issues already. Now there's no trust."
Later in the conversation, while apparently still recording, Russell is heard telling Young, "I'm glad you told my video all that."
"Huh?" Young says, turning his face toward Russell before the video cuts off.
