Steve Nash returned Saturday against Golden State, his first game since Oct. 31.
The Lakers point guard missed 24 games because of a small fracture in his lower left leg.
With Steve Blake also sidelined by injury, the Lakers have had to go with Chris Duhon and Darius Morris as their point guards.
Blake has started shooting after practices but is still out at least four more weeks as he rehabilitates after abdominal surgery.
The Lakers have struggled with their lack of point guard production, part of the reason for their 12-14 start.
Nash was injured when Portland point guard Damian Lillard ran into him as the two turned to go upcourt.
