Lakers Injury Update: Nash Will Play, Blake Game-Time Decision

Share on FacebookTweet about this on Twitter

After a bizarre victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Los Angeles Lakers are looking to finish their road trip on a high note against the Philadelphia 76ers tonight. While all three point guards have returned for the Lakers, the team is taking it slow as they are giving each player at least a game off to rest and hopefully avoid any further setbacks.

After finishing the game with 21 points and 8 assists on Wednesday, Jordan Farmar will not be playing tonight. While there were concerns he re-injured himself late in the game, Farmar was fortunately only dealing with cramps.

With Farmar out, Steve Nash will be playing on his 40th birthday while Steve Blake is a game-time decision with a bruised thigh via Los Angeles Times’ Mike Bresnahan:

While the three point guards returned, the injuries have continued to pile on as Nick Young will be out for at least two weeks with a knee fracture and Jodie Meeks out for tonight’s game.

With only eight healthy players, the team decided to re-sign forward Shawne Williams to a 10-day contract.

With the Lakers looking to return home with a successful 2-1 road trip, they can only hope that there aren’t any more injuries and have enough players to finish the game tonight.

    Blake is a warrior

      Apparently, he’s a laker.

    Lakers need to just let us fans know are we rebuilding or a homestead for old players??????????????????Confusing as hell,what direction are the Lakers FO going in???I see no direction and no path to a brighter future.Just old injured players eating up salary cap space and lame duck coach on the verge of a nervous breakdown.Yeah go figure the Lakers are a big mess right now.Hopeless!

    • Nick the Quick

      If we tell the world, then haters like Dan Gilbert will write tattletale emails to the commissioner saying we are tanking to get a high draft pick and we are trying to reduce our payroll to get big star free agents and rebuild our team super fast and win multiple championships

    • Gregory Choa

      Really? Do you need the Lakers “direction” spoon-fed to you? Are you really that confused? It seems to me that some of the mindsets of some of you so-called Lakers Fans are a big mess right now…you’re hopeless Lakers Walton!

      Nash & Kobe are still great players. We have some good young players who were the best bench in the league earlier in the year. We’ll be getting at least one quality player in the draft and have cap space for at least one max contract via free agency this year. D’Antoni is not a lame duck coach and looked pretty happy the last time I saw him. The main problem this season has been injuries. Not all the injured guys are older players. No reason to be so negative. Young, Johnson, Kelly, Sacre, Meeks, Marshall, and Henry are all young players with potential. Yes, we’re rebuilding but we’re not throwing out MVPs who can still play. Blake and Farmar are also good players who aren’t that old. This team could have surprised some people if we hadn’t been slammed by all the injuries. We may not make it to the playoffs this season, but I still like watching these guys play.

    Old fart Nash should retire.

    • hookedonnews

      Not everyone agrees with that opinion. He’s still got the skills if he can stay healthy. They’re not going to bring anyone else in this season anyway, and he gets paid whether he plays or not. Most people appreciate watching a player with his passing and shooting skills. Even at 40 he’s still fun to watch.
