Lakers News: Steve Nash Still Unable to Jog

The Los Angeles Lakers are still waiting for Steve Nash to return from injury, but with the latest news, it may be a long time before he hits the courts again.

According to ESPN, the Lakers guard cannot jog due to a fracture in his fibula which he injured in an Oct. 31 game against the Portland Trail Blazers.

Los Angeles Lakers guard Steve Nash said Friday that he hasn’t been able to jog yet or do any on-court work without feeling pain his fractured left leg and doubted that he’d be ready to play when the Lakers return home to play Indiana on Tuesday.

“I can’t jog yet so … I don’t think so,” Nash said when asked if he thought there was a chance he could play Tuesday, after being re-evaluated by the Lakers team doctors on Monday.

Nash has been ruled out for the Lakers’ next two games and there is a good chance he will miss more games aside from those two. Los Angeles is in desperate need for an elite point guard, especially with Mike D’Antoni now running the sidelines.

The Lakers are currently relying on Chris Duhon and Darius Morris to anchor the team at that position, and there is no doubt they cannot run the D’Antoni system like Nash can. However, at the end of the day, the Lakers should not rush Nash’s rehab process and they should get him back on the court when he is 100 percent.

    Fish is not a point guard. Kobe can run the team for now until he gets injured again

    D’Antoni was hired because and for Nash. If we have seen the last of Nash, then what? Phil could have filled the void created by the absence of Nash. Too bad too sad.

    Trading Gasol isn’t a bad ideal….he doesn’t have that fire anymore. He can be replaced with a younger J Smith from ATL that don’t mind rough play. Gasol don’t even dunk the ball anymore, he gets his shoot blocked to many times by smaller players. You just can’t give Gasol away but it’s worth looking at….I mean 19 million this year and playing like this…..COM ON MAN!!!!!!!! It’s not all on Gasol, I’m just saying….he isn’t playing like a 19 million dollar a year player. PG, is needed most of all, till SN gets back. With that said I don’t think the Lakers are playing with a sense of urgency…….
