Steve Nash Guesses He Won’t Play for Another 10-14 Days

by December 03, 2012

The Los Angeles Lakers can expect to be without their starting point guard for up to two more weeks, as recovers from a fractured bone in his left leg. 10-14 more days in street clothes is Steve Nash’s best guess. Reports the LA Daily News: “Nash said the non-displaced fracture in his left leg hasn’t healed enough for him to play in at least the Lakers’ three-game trip this week. They have stops in Houston (Tuesday), New Orleans (Wednesday) and Oklahoma City (Friday). The Lakers then have a home game Sunday against Utah. Nash said he plans to fly with the team to receive further treatment, but he hardly sounded optimistic about his return. ‘Another 10 days to two weeks?’ Nash wondered aloud. ‘That’s a total guess. Since I can’t run, I’m not going to play this week.’ Nash has already missed 15 games, his longest span since 1999. He said he’s not currently planned to take another MRI. Nash has participated in various agility and jogging drills in the past week, and shot jumpers during pregame warmups.”
