Lakers News: Steve Nash Out For Two Weeks With Nerve Pain In Back


Steve Nash

In the Lakers’ 113-90 loss to the Timberwolves on Sunday night, Steve Nash was seen limping on the court and did not return in the second half. While many thought it was a precaution since the Lakers were down by so much, Nash revealed that his injuries are getting worse and would seek medical advice from Dr. Robert Watkins on Monday afternoon.

After the visit this afternoon, Nash was diagnosed with nerve root irritation in his back. He will receive an epidural tomorrow and is expected to be out at least two weeks. Nash will be re-evaluated in 10 days where the Lakers will have another update on the 39-year-old’s condition. Steve Blake and Jordan Farmar are expected to play major minutes at point guard until the former two-time Most Valuable Player returns.

Here is the press release of Steve Nash’s injury via Lakers:
