Steve Nash health update may come todayPosted by Inside Hoops
There’s no one more eager for Steve Nash’s return than Kobe Bryant.
The reasons are obvious.
“I won’t have to bring the ball up as much. I like facilitating, but I like to score a lot more,” Bryant said. “When he comes back, he’ll make my life a lot easier.”
It remains unclear when that will happen.
The Lakers plan to re-evaluate Nash’s fractured left leg sometime today.
Nash has yet to perform any running exercises. The guard also recently expressed doubts he’d play when the Lakers (7-7) host the Indiana Pacers (6-8) on Tuesday at Staples Center. It’s possible Bryant could find some relief since Steve Blake might play against Indiana after a lower abdominal strain kept him out for the past seven games.
