A Steve Nash injury update from the LA Lakers reveals the point guard is still in pain. The fracture to his left leg has still not allowed him to even return to jogging, showing that he might be even further from returning than originally anticipated.
This is definitely not good news to the Lakers, who have been without Nash’s services since he was injured back on October 31. Missing a point guard that they signed in free agency to run this team has slowed down the development of the Lakers and could be partially to blame for their current record of 6-7.
Nash has tried to get back on the court and do stationary drills, but even that has caused him too much pain to sustain. Now he is just waiting for the injury to heal and hoping that doctors will give him a better prognosis when he gets it checked out again next week.
With backup point guard Steve Blake also injured, the Lakers have had to try out Darius Morris and Chris Duhon at the position. That hasn’t been found with a lot of success, leading to Kobe Bryant bringing up the ball for the Lakers a lot of the time. That’s certainly something the team wants to continue because it is going to wear him down.
Do you think that the LA Lakers made a mistake with the Nash signing? Could this Steve Nash injury be something that slows down the team for the rest of the season?
