Lakers Injury Update: Steve Nash Gets Treatment, Probable For Tomorrow

The health of Steve Nash is a touchy subject at this time. Nash has played well since returning to the floor last Tuesday, but with the slew of injuries hitting the Lakers this season and Nash’s issues since joining the team, it makes sense for everyone to be worried when he gets hurt.

After leaving yesterday’s game against the Chicago Bulls, all indications seemed to be that it was a minor injury Nash suffered.

This turned out to be the case as Lakers Nation reporter Serena Winters reports that Nash was at practice, though he did not practice fully with the team:

This is good news for a Lakers team that has played reasonably well since the return of Nash and fellow point guard Steve Blake. The team has gone 2-2 since he returned and been relatively competitive in their two losses.

With a day to practice and get treatment, it seems likely that Nash will be able to suit up tomorrow against the Utah Jazz in a battle of struggling teams, and the Lakers are listing him as probable:

Since returning from injury, Nash is averaging 11 points and five assists in three games.

    Following up on Nash’s nerve root irritation which experts advice it’s best to prevent aggravating activities that further irritate. Relating to no stretching, no exercise, no prolong sitting, and limiting leg and arm stretched out positions are just a few?

      He’s been addressing it since November (plus all summer). He’s ready to play basketball. He said today that this is something he’s going to be dealing with the rest of his life. He thinks he can manage it, and that’s his choice. He’s got the rest of his life to rest after he retires. I can’t blame him for wanting to do what he loves to do.

        ?!? smh, yes he took more than half the season too. He’ll likely play 20 games while taking the rest off. The team needs a starting consistent PG. IMO, will get stretch provisioned in the off season. Best thing for the brand given FO’s past bad moves.

          Yes, he took a while to get healthy. Some injuries take more time than others. I don’t know how many games Nash will play. We have 4 PGs once Farmar is back. They are all good players. IMO the team plays better with Nash on the floor. With our injury situation we need all our players. I don’t know what will happen next season. It will probably depend on what happens the rest of this season. The Lakers got rid of Derek Fisher so I’m sure they’ll have no qualms about doing what they believe is best. Personally I hope Nash can manage this injury and play out his contract, but the FO is not calling me for advice. I’m sure you think that’s a good thing.
