Lakers News: Mike Brown Not Rushing Steve Nash’s Return

The Los Angeles Lakers have title aspirations for the 2012-13 season, but injuries can thwart any chances of winning a championship.

—- Kick off the season with your own Lakers Nation t-shirt! —-

The Lakers have only won one game this season, and to make things worse, Steve Nash will be sidelined for a week or more due to a fracture in his left fibula. Even though the Lakers are in urgent need of a victory, coach Mike Brown does not want to rush the rehab process for Steve Nash. Brown spoke SportingNews and talked about how the team is approaching the setback.

“You obviously hope he’s back as soon as possible,” Brown said Sunday. “But the one thing you don’t want to do, you don’t want to compromise his long-term health for him coming back quicker than he should. So, (trainer) Gary Vitti and the staff are on top of it. We’ll just wait and play it out from there.”

Nash will be out for at least a week, but don’t be surprised if the process takes longer than expected. Nash is in his late thirties and his body doesn’t heal as fast as it use to. He injured his left fibula during the Lakers’ game during the Blazers and did not return to the court. Los Angeles ended up losing, but they had bigger concerns heading back to the locker room.

The Lakers are making the right choice in taking their time with the Nash injury. There is no need to risk his future health to break this current losing slump. Los Angeles is capable of winning with Nash out of the lineup, as they proved Sunday night, but some players will have to step up and fill the void. If this team wants to be last one standing in June, it has to be able to fight through injuries and setbacks.

    The LAKERS definitely have an NBA Championship Players in their roster already!!!! Unfortunately, they do NOT have a Championship Coach in Mike Brown!!! I can not see them winning in his system!!! He did not win with Lebron James at Cleveland, that is why Lebron Left to win in MIAMI…I definitely believe Mike Brown will lead them to NBA Title…You put the Star Players when you are up 24 points!!! and the game is already wrapped up. What is the point? He says for them to get in shape and play together…What an IDIOT… you have 82 games to get them all in shape and playing together….How can he find out which players in the bench can play when they are needed when he doesnt play them? HIs Princeton system may work only in college!!! You have a premier point guard and you dont allow him to run the team? Lets get rid of Mike BROWN and hire Jerry Sload instead….find a true coach that can guide this team to NBA Crown…Not BROWN.,…

    Other way is Bring Back Phil Jackson and implement the TRiange Once Again….No Brown will give the LAKERS a title in Los Angeles. Never!!!

    Kobe is supporting Mike Brown because he was in favor of the Princeton offense. I may be wrong, but I don’t really think he wants to put the offense in the hands of Steve Nash. I hope that’s not the case, but Brown needs to realize that he’s the one who’s going to get fired if they can’t make this work. I read that they weren’t planning on bringing in another point guard. Why should they? You don’t really need a great point guard in this offense. I hope this all works out, but I must say I’m not optimistic. They may be able to win, but they will never be what they could be if they would just let Nash run the show and forget the Princeton.
