Lakers Practice VIDEOS: Farmar, Blake Eye Return, Nash Is Setback

Share on FacebookTweet about this on Twitter

The Los Angeles Lakers resumed practice at the Toyota Sports Center on Monday, after almost a full two weeks away from home. The intention was to practice as many guys as possible who were due back from injury, the biggest one being Steve Nash. Unfortunately, Nash “tweaked” his back while at home, in a manner unrelated to any of his previous injuries and was unable to practice. Lakers PR also noted that Nash’s time in Vancouver spent rehabbing “went well,” and they expect him to be back at practice this Thursday.

Jordan Farmar and Steve Blake are inching closer to a return. Both were finally cleared to ramp up basketball-related activities, though neither was given the green light to participate in full practices. Both Xavier Henry and Jodie Meeks had MRIs today as well. Check out our practice videos below and don’t forget to subscribe to our Lakers Nation YouTube Channel.

    I wonder if everyone complaining about Nash’s durability realizes Kobe has missed way more games than Nash due to injury since 2000?

    Prior to his Lakers tenure Nash had not missed more than 8 games in a season since 99. Kobe has missed over 8 games in a season due to injury 4 times in that same span. Dig that? The much older Nash has been more durable than Kobe.

      There are a lot of misconceptions about Steve Nash. He was healthy his last season in Phoenix and came into camp in LA in great shape (according to him). Then the broken leg and all that followed from it. A lousy break for him and the team.

      I can’t disagree with that… but we may also consider that Kobe plays extended games deep into June… and also the FIBA and Olympic basketball… and Kobe’s style of play on both side of the court can’t be compared to Nash…way too different.

        Solid points but the backlash is an argument in D’Antoni’s favor that’s contrary to what the MDA hater spew…. Nash as the two time MVP superstar of the Suns always played less minutes than Kobe.

        MDA is said to run his players into the dirt causing these injuries, but how could Nash have been so much more durable under those circumstances?!? It’s comical how so many twist things to fit a public perception.

          agree with you Daryl on people trying to do anything imaginable to lend credit to that argument… the MDA Suns team had always been healthy… this is the only MDA team that has suffered such magnitude of an injury, team wise. Given the right players, to run his system, he is actually a good coach… my beef with his style is the ageing and non-agile Pau Gasol… Pau has got to go if MDA is retained. If not, play Pau shorter minutes, so too with Kobe.

          • Daryl Peek

            My only argument in that is Pau is playing the least amount of minutes of his career this season. Of course he’s being leaned on heavily now due to all of the injuries. MDA kept many players minutes low this season up til the injuries. Remember Pau complained about the low minutes earlier in the season citing not being able to get in rhythm because of it.

            I agree Pau has got to go if MDA stays. Not because he can’t play in the system but because of the bad blood between them coupled with he and Kobe constantly usurping his system because they don’t like up tempo basketball. Kobe would be more likely to fit in if Pau was gone IMO.

            daryl, the bottom line is that MD is not a winner, never will be, his coaching style just does not fit this team, period. Whether Pau goes or stays, MD is the jinx of this team.

          • Daryl Peek

            His coaching style was a perfect fit for this team when they were healthy. Remember when we actually had a bench that was leading the NBA is scoring while the team was over .500 and starting to come together?

            Jinx WOW! I’m not superstitious at all so I can’t roll with that silliness. Plenty of teams are dealing with injures also, just not the sheer volume as we are.

    If Nash tweaked his back at home, what’s going to happen when he returns? He’ll tweak his back again after the first minute of the first quarter. Why not just hang it up? He is diminishing his legacy.
