Lakers News: Steve Nash Staying In Game Shape; May Return This Season


[new_royalslider id=”135″]

Last week, it was reported that Steve Nash was done for the season. Head coach Mike D’Antoni let it be known that Nash wouldn’t play the rest of the way, but now it appears that the veteran point guard might get back on the floor.

According to Mike Trudell of, Nash is staying in game shape and might return this season:

The nerve issues have completely derailed Nash’s efforts to return this season and prove his worth. The 40-year-old hasn’t given up on the prospect of contributing to this team, but simply hasn’t been able to stay healthy.

With Jordan Farmar going down with a groin injury in practice on Monday, the window of opportunity has opened for Nash. Although many believe he’s done for the season and could be released by the Lakers in this summer, the two-time NBA MVP has been reluctant to admit defeat.

Recently, Nash admitted that one of the main motivations to prolong his career is to get paid in Bill Simmons’ Grantland series, The Finish Line. The series has followed Nash during this trying time as he deals with his body breaking down and his NBA career coming to an end.

Obviously, Nash wants to get back on the floor badly, but it remains to be seen if that will be this season, next season or ever again.

    I think anyone who knows anything about Steve Nash understands that the money is not his main motivation. He said he wanted the money. Not exactly a shocking revelation. He has made it clear that his primary motivation is to play while he has the opportunity. I hope MDA will let him get back on the court. If that’s what he wants, he should be able to do it.

      Childsupport makes him play even when he starring end of a shotgun he still goota pay his baby mamma

        Shouldn’t you be on TMZ commenting? I don’t think he’s worried about having enough money to take care of his kids. Just because he doesn’t want to walk away from $9 million doesn’t mean he’s out of money. He won that lawsuit in CA in case you didn’t know.

          Informative with regards to his off the court issues (hmm?). But I’m surprised he’s staying put and not going back to the Southwest. Since he believes that LA is not a good place to raise a family. But being that he’s in the South Bay and near the beach it’s not a pretty bad area.

          • hookedonnews

            Evidently he changed his mind about raising his kids in California and doesn’t plan to go back to Phoenix when he retires.
