Lakers Hope Steve Nash Can Play in the Playoffs

by April 17, 2013

Steve Nash will sit out what could turn out to be a do-or-die season finale for the Los Angeles Lakers, but should they make the Playoffs, the hope is that the 39-year old point guard will be healthy enough to suit up by then: “Los Angeles Lakers guard Steve Nash underwent an MRI exam, which confirmed several preexisting issues related to his hip and back, which are causing nerve irritation and contributing to his hamstring pain and weakness. Nash received an epidural injection [Tuesday] morning, and will not play in [Wednesday] night’s game against the Houston Rockets.”
