Lakers point guard Steve Nash was diagnosed with a "small non-displaced fracture in the head of his fibula," according to a statement released by the team.
Nash underwent an MRI exam on his left leg, which was injured in Wednesday night's game against the Portland Trail Blazers.
Team doctor Steve Lombardo made the diagnosis, which will keep Nash out for at least a week, when he'll then be re-examined.
Nash was acquired over the summer in trade from the Phoenix Suns.
The Lakers have started the season 0-3 after losing all eight of their exhibition games. Steve Blake is the likely starter in Nash's absence.
Coach Mike Brown is still experimenting at backup point guard, going with second-year player Darius Morris on Friday night against the Clippers over veteran Chris Duhon.
Brown noted after the game that he was pleased with Morris' performance, although it was uneven.
Nash may very well be out longer than a week and will miss at least three games -- against the Detroit Pistons, Utah Jazz and Golden State Warriors.
