In a report by ESPN LA, Lakers point guard Steve Nash hopes to return back to the court soon. He was able to participate during the Lakers practice at their facility in El Segundo, California. Nash was to go through an MRI on Monday, but the Lakers decided to just have the Canadian point guard go through some drills with the Lakers strength coach. As for a return date, the...
Lakers guard Steve Nash will be sidelined until at least next week, still unable to run without pain in his lower left leg, he said Tuesday.
Nash took part in some agility drills Monday and tried to do some jogging but couldn't complete it symptom-free. He will probably undergo an MRI exam to get a fresh update on the small fracture in his lower left leg.
Nash said he would...
EL SEGUNDO Lakers guard Steve Blake was examined today by Dr. Steven Yoon and had an MRI exam.
The exam confirmed that Blake still has an abdominal strain. As a result, he will be out at least another two weeks.
Blake was originally diagnosed with the abdominal strain on November 12 and has missed the last eight games with the injury.
Both the starting point guard and the back-up point guard will still be out today against the Indiana Pacers. The Los Angeles Lakers have ruled out Steve Nash and Steve Blake for Tuesday night's game. Both are battling injury and are not quite ready to return to the court. Mike Trudell of TWC SportsNet said yesterday that both point guards will be unable to play Tuesday...
Los Angeles Lakers guard Steve Blake will be sidelined at least two more weeks with an abdominal strain.
The backup point guard had an MRI exam Wednesday.
Blake has missed eight games with the injury, which sidelined him in the first half Nov. 11 at Sacramento. He will miss at least seven more games.
Blake's injury occurred at a particularly inopportune time for the Lakers...

After losing Steve Nash this offseason, the Phoenix Suns must have figured that they would have to take a step back this season. They made some nice moves in the offseason, adding players like Goran Dragic, Luis Scola, and Michael Beasley, but nobody really expects much of them.
Mike D’Antoni was never able to get over the hump with the Phoenix Suns. He had a few teams that looked like they could win a championship, but his offensive mindset never translated to a title. When he left Phoenix for the bright lights of New York, with the talent the Knicks had, it looked like D’Antoni might have the chance to be successful there. But things were much...
LOS ANGELES Our record is 7-8 right now, said Laker forward Metta World Peace. That means right now were a 7-8 team.
Leave it to MWP to say what most of us are thinking.
Fact is, they are a game under .500, and most of the time this season they have absolutely played down to their record. Sometimes, even lower, like the rancid offensive performance against Indiana last Tuesday...
Los Angeles Lakers center was challenged by Los Angeles Kings mascot "Bailey" to a free throw and three-point shooting contest.
Bailey won both challenges.
"Sometimes you have to lose to win," joked Howard afterwards.
Howard's free throw average this season is 47.8 percent while his three-point average is 0.00 percent as it should be.
Now that the rust is coming off the season (except for you Steve Nash), we’ll be splitting the Wednesday posts into morning (for recaps) and afternoon (for the tiers). Check out the previous Centers, Forwards, and Guards tiers. This week we’ll jump right into the guards.
There’s been some movement on the PG front mainly because I had to move Kyrie Irving down due to his...
It hasn't been the most pleasant 2-day break for the Lakers (7-8) after falling back to sub .500 last Tuesday thanks to their most lackluster performance of the season against Indiana.
There were plenty of reasons as to why and how the purple and gold lost that game, but it's obvious the Lakers can't establish their identity without having everybody back, especially...
That was a question that was asked in a Hoopsworld article.
Pau Gasol has been a great fit so far in Mike D'Antoni's Lakers' "Run-N-Gun Lite" (since Steve Nash isn't running things) version of his old Phoenix Suns offense from years ago. You can understand Gasol's frustration with that system since it's a purely offensive heavy system with that...
Is it too early to start the campaign for Rajon Rondo as MVP of the 2012-2013 NBA season? Never too early to try…. It’s been almost ten years since Steve Nash or anyone won the MVP with stats similar to Rondo. I’m going to break down Rondo’s season so far stat wise vs. Steve Nash’s 2004-2005 season to make my point because you can always find stats to make your argument...
