Last week the Lakers said Steve Nash would be out for at least one more week and this week they’ve extended it to at least another week. Nash seems to be having issues in his recovery from a non displaced leg fracture. Read more after the jump.
Nash will miss games against Houston and Brooklyn, and at Sacramento, Memphis and Dallas, before being re-evaluated once again by Dr. Steve Lombardo.
It’s the same update we received last week, and Nash admitted his frustration as he just can’t tough out an injury of that kind to get on the floor. Of course, the big picture concern for the Lakers is that Nash be fully healthy as the season goes on, so the team certainly can’t rush his return.
Nash will miss the debut of his former coach Mike D’Antoni but as they said it’s important for him to be fully healthy, especially with the type of offense D’Antoni likes to run.
