Lakers News: Steve Nash Won’t Be With Team On Upcoming Road Trip

The waiting game continues for Steve Nash’s return with there still no telling when the two-time NBA MVP will be back in the lineup for the Los Angeles Lakers. Nash may have returned to practice recently, but won’t travel with the team on the upcoming road trip according to Lakers Nation reporter Serena Winters:

Back on Nov. 1o, Nash suffered a setback in his attempt to get back to 100 percent with nerve root irritation in his back. The injury was such a setback for the 39-year-old point guard that many believed it would be the end of the future Hall of Famer’s career in the NBA. Although retirement seemed to be a likely scenario for Nash, it never came to fruition with the Canada native reluctant to call it a career.

Nash has never been the same since suffering a leg fracture in the second game of the 2012-13 NBA season against the Portland Trail Blazers. The leg injury turned out to be a reality check for the veteran guard as it became clear the end of his playing days was closer than expected.

With Nash still trying to get his body right after the latest setback and not ready to return, the floor general sitting out the upcoming four-game road trip comes as no surprise and might be exactly what’s needed to take the next step in the rehab process.

    SMH…

    It doesn’t even matter anymore this franchise has went through so much crap lately it just really doesn’t mean crap anymore.Whatever is clever.It’s just more bad news pile on.Nothing can change lady luck,she has a mind of her own.Sad for Nash!

  • Leo

    Nash is (and was) a false hope. MDA offense is built around a PG and dribble penetration. After having Nash signed, MDA seemed to be a reasonable option. But it was a false hope from the beginning. Nash is too old anyway to run such kind of an offense. In his last years with the Suns Dragic played better than he did… Just rememer it. He was laying on the ground behind the basket with his towel around his neck and cheered for Dragic. I remember. He is a total waste of money.

    • KBSN

      Nash was fine until moving to the Lakers – he was an All-Star in 2011-12 (Dragic was not). He was still arguably the best point guard in the game and a viable option when the Lakers signed him but has simply had horrible luck since.

      • Laker Realist

        arguably one of the best point guards in 2012 are u blind..tht dude was no longer elite when the Lakers acquired him…sure we thought he still had something left but to call him “arguably the best is a huge stretch

  • J Taylor

    No loss. Farmar & Blake absorb the loss of Nash.

    I see win/win. Nash will not play next year and will most certainly retire. This makes him a bonus to trade or keep as his $9M in salary will be off the books either way.

    • hookedonnews

      In case you haven’t noticed, Farmar isn’t playing, and this is his second injury this season (calf injury in preseason). Yes, it is a loss, and the team needs Nash back. What happens if Blake gets injured? He missed more games last season than Nash. The Lakers need all their players. It’s a long season.

  • hookedonnews

    No reason for him to make that trip. Better to stay home and rehab.

  • Jose

    I always loved watching Steve Nash play even though he use to burn the Lakers but IMO he really should hang it up. It would be a good situation for him and the team. He gets healthy without trying to rush and the team knows where they stand and what direction they should go. Additionally that would put the lakers about 4 million below the cap and they would be in better position to go after 2 big names instead of the guy that should stay in New York. There are really no players that are going to be free agents that are must haves for the Lakers. It would be nice to sign a player Like Monroe but not a must have you can find a better option than Pau for 4 or 6 million. You still have the ability to resign Hill and he has been the better defender this year. It’s all just a shame that we all have to get old. Cause Kobe, Nash and Pau in their primes were awesome players and though at least one can put up points he’s not the same player he was when he scored 81 on Toronto.

    Everybody stop trying to militantly force Steve Nash to retire

    The Lakers won’t do bad this year no matter how crazy everybody gets to try to fuckforce all of our shortcomings

    I surely know this: I keep getting personally suck anti jettisoned as a scapegoat to our losses anymore somebody other than me for once is gonna reap it for all trangressions done to me

    WEST COAST

    Believe in your team for once and bleed the purple and gold
