Lakers News: Steve Blake Playing Tuesday Labeled A “Possibility”

steve-blake-game-winnerThe Lakers have been decimated by injuries over the course of the season, losing just about every guy that has attempted to play PG for them at one point or another. One of those guys is Steve Blake, who has been out for an extended period of time with an injured elbow.

However, like a gaggle of other Lakers, Blake is hoping to be back in action soon. According to team reporter Mike Trudell of Lakers.com, Blake might be targeting next Tuesday as his return date.

A little pain is better than a lot of it, I suppose. And Blake is hoping that by Tuesday night in Minnesota he’ll be ready to rumble.

If Blake does come back, expect him to get most of the PG minutes that have been going to Kendall Marshall. Even though the former D-Leauger has been playing well in Blake/Nash/Farmar’s absence, Blake will still (theoretically) be the best active guard on the roster when he returns.

As for the rest of the injured Lakers, Farmar is still a ways from coming back while Nash is hoping to be back next week and Xavier Henry is hoping to be re-evaluated soon.

    It’ll be great news when its a reality.

    I’d prefer that when he does comeback, he does so in limited minutes to minimize any chance of re-injury.
    Marshall’s done well holding down the fort in the meantime and we obviously aren’t in a push for the playoffs.

    It’s time for the team to take stock of what we have and plan for next season.

    At the beginning of the season i actually thought this group would go as far as the second round if healthy and used properly. If we used a slow tempo offence where we would go to the post or use some pick and rolls here and there instead of just jacking up shots as fast as you can, we could have been good even last year. But it is what it is at this point and as long as mike dantoni is coach this team will never win a chip. I mean what was going thru jim buss head when he hired mike dantoni??? Phil Jackson proven winner with 11 rings and then theres mike dantoni and his fast paced offence which made it only to the conference finals and got beat by phil jackson.

    PG: Nash, Blake, Farmar
    SG: Kobe, Meeks
