Lakers News: Nash Says Tonight’s Game Could Be Last Of The Season

This season has been a disastrous one for the Lakers in general and Steve Nash in particular. Nash has played in only 13 games this season and his 14th could be his last.

According to ESPN’s Dave McMenamin, tonight’s game against the Dallas Mavericks could be Nash’s final game of the season:

Nash’s season was destroyed because of injuries. He has dealt with nerve root irritation stemming from a leg injury he suffered at the beginning of last season.

He has played sparingly this season, and has shown flashes of the two-time MVP the Lakers thought they were getting. Unfortunately, he has been unable to sustain a high level of play.

There are sure to be a number of questions on whether or not Nash will play next season. There have been reports that Nash could retire at the end of this season, but Nash himself has said he plans on returning next year.

Nash is due to make $9.7 million next season, and the possibility of getting that money off their books is probably attractive to the Lakers. But Nash has shown he can play at a high level in spurts.

Nash also needs only 12 assists to pass Mark Jackson for 3rd on the all-time list. He has hit double-digits in two of the last three games, so passing Jackson could be a possibility tonight.

Nash is now the third Laker this week who could miss the rest of the season joining Xavier Henry and potentially Pau Gasol.
