Steve Nash's timetable for return keeps getting pushed out.  His injury has been strange since it happened.  At first, he was diagnosed with a shin contusion.  He was expected back possibly the next night.  Then the diagnosis suddenly jumped to a fractured fibula.  Nash was then expected to miss about a week and a half to two weeks.  Now, over a month later, Nash still isn't playing, and he needs more time to heal.According to a USA Today report, Nash expects to be out at least another two weeks.  His leg has not healed to the point of allowing him to play at full speed.  To play his style, Nash needs to be able to run and cut at full speed, and he can't do that."I think it will be at least another two weeks," Nash told the newspaper late Monday night. "I can move. I can shoot. I just can't run full speed. And I'm not even in shape. I'll probably need at least a week of practice once I start running."The frustration in Los Angeles surrounding Nash's injury has been magnified by the team's performance.  They fired Mike Brown, hired Mike D'Antoni, and they are still playing sub-.500 ball.  D'Antoni hopes that getting Nash back in the mix will help things, but he's going to have to wait for that to happen.Nash and D'Antoni have a good relationship.  D'Antoni coached Nash in Phoenix where the two of them thrived.  Nash has averaged 14.4 points per game and 8.6 assists per game in his career.  He only played in two games this season for the Lakers.
