After suffering a lower leg contusion in the loss to the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday, Los Angeles Lakers have listed Steve Nash as doubtful for Friday night’s showdown with the Los Angeles Clippers according to Mike Trudell of Lakers.com via Twitter:

No indication has been given by the Lakers in terms of how much time Nash may miss with the leg contusion. Veteran backup Steve Blake will likely fill in for Nash while he recovers from the leg injury. Darius Morris and Chris Duhon will also see more time on the floor in the absence of the two-time NBA MVP.
