Steve Nash Out At Least One Week With Fractured Fibula

As if an 0-3 start wasn’t bad enough, the Lakers were given even more unfortunate news yesterday, when the team learned point guard Steve Nash will be out at least a week with a fractured fibula. More via ESPN Los Angeles: “Steve Nash has a small fracture in his left leg and will be out of the Los Angeles Lakers’ lineup for at least another week. The Lakers announced the results of the point guard’s MRI exam Saturday. Nash suffered a small fracture to his fibula in a collision with Portland rookie Damian Lillard on Wednesday night. He missed the Lakers’ 105-95 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday night, when the Lakers dropped to 0-3 for the first time in 34 years. Nash, 38, said he was ‘hopeful’ to play in the Clippers game, and Lakers coach Mike Brown said the point guard had ‘made progress’ in the days following his injury. That was before the team knew about the non-displaced fracture at the head of Nash’s fibula.”
