Updated: In what he’s described as a “horrible 18 months for me,” Steve Nash offered no clarity on when that will all end.
The 39-year-old point guard revealed he had hoped earlier this week that he would return when the Lakers (9-9) visit the Sacramento Kings (4-11) tonight at Sleep Train Arena. But Nash said “calmer heads prevailed” and opted a more conservative approach to ensure he wouldn’t “risk this kind of yo-yo season.”
The persisting nerve issues in Nash’s back prompted Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni to practice him for three consecutive days for only about 15 minutes each. Nash also sounds unsure whether he can play when the Lakers host the Toronto Raptors Sunday at Staples Center in what will mark Kobe Bryant’s arrival after rehabbing his left torn left Achilles tendon for the past eight months.
Based on Nash's lingering injury issues and the fact that he has not been very productive for sometime, you may be better off letting someone else deal with this headache.
