Steve Nash is "100 percent healthy" right now. He's not having nerve pain for the first time in a long time.
100 percent healthy for a 40-year-old and a 22-year-old are two completely different things. Nash still has the ability to play at a high level, but you cannot expect him to be anything close to what he was when he played in Phoenix.ANALYST: David Kerr
It's nice to hear that the 40 year old guard is healthy. His $10 million salary this season is part of the handcuff that keeps the Lakers from being able to update their roster. Hopefully, for Lakers fans, Nash can stay uninjured this season. But don't count on a statistical resurgence from the aging ballplayer, he has played in 65 games over the last two seasons.ANALYST:
Addison Russell was 1-for-4 with a solo home run on Sunday.
Top prospect Addison Russell had his timetable to the majors sped up this season with the Cubs and has responded admirably. Russell has played 87 games with 33 runs, seven home runs, 27 RBI and two stolen bases with a .237 average. Signs point to a better year in 2016 but for this year, Russell will put up stats but is a batting average risk. Analysis: Greg Jewett
Adam Morgan tossed five innings in Sunday’s 6-2 loss to the Braves, surrendering four runs on seven hits and three walks while recording just one strikeout.
After holding the struggling Braves scoreless over the first four frames of Sundays outing, Morgan ran into big trouble in the fifth. The young lefty did finish out the inning, but not before being tagged for four runs. Morgans first two starts in the bigs, which came on June 21st and July 3rd respectively, were impressive and left some fantasy players feeling that he could become a deep-league option for the second half, especially in N.L.-only formats. However, over his last five turns in the Phillies rotation Morgan has provided a mixed bag of results. ultimately pitching to a 5.61 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and 3.5 K/9 across 25 2/3 innings. He is expected to be back on the bump Saturday night in San Diego. Analysis: Nate Miller
