Steve Nash still out healing, misses 3rd game
Lakers guard Steve Nash missed his third consecutive game Sunday against the Clippers as he continues to nurse hip and hamstring injuries. Nash has now missed four straight games with his ailments, but remains listed as day to day, according to the team's official website. Steve Blake will continue to run the point in his absence.
Analysis: While the Lakers continue to say Nash is getting closer to getting back on the court, the veteran is running out of time. Fantasy owners who are in leagues that are playing through Fantasy Week 24 (April 8-14) have no choice but to consider Nash an injury risk heading into the upcoming scoring period. While the 39-year-old can be considered a high-end option when healthy, owners should start him at their own peril this week.
