With Nash missing the second half of the loss to the Portland Trail Blazers and sitting out Friday’s loss to the Los Angeles Clippers, Lakers fans have been anxiously awaiting the results of an MRI on Nash’s left leg injury.
Unfortunately, the results of the MRI showed a small fracture in Nash’s leg that will force him to miss at least a week.
According to the Lakers Press Release on Nash’s injury:
EL SEGUNDO- Los Angeles Lakers guard Steve Nash was examined by team doctor Steve Lombardo and had an MRI exam. Results of the MRI showed a small non-displaced fracture in the head of his fibula (left leg).
The injury occurred in the second quarter of Wednesday night’s game in Portland against the Trail Blazers. Nash is expected to be out a minimum of a week. He will be re-examined and an update on his condition will be given at that time.
