Lakers hit with yet another injury blow

Published Add your comment

Things just don’t want to get any better for the LA Lakers this year, or so it would seem.

Not only have they been missing star man Kobe Bryant for all but a tiny segment of this campaign, but it appears that Steve Nash’s injury woes aren’t going anywhere anytime soon.

The 40-year-old point-guard declared himself fit to play during the Lakers’ trip to play the Utah Jazz last night, but was forced off by his recurring nerve irritation after only 16 minutes and 35 seconds of the first-half.

Nash also went off injured during the Lakers loss to the Bulls on Sunday and, given the fact that he’s only played 10 games this season - including last night’s outing - things aren’t looking good the NBA’s oldest current player.

Despite insisting that he is not considering retirement just yet, the odds on Nash returning to play regularly for the Lakers aren’t looking likely.

One might predict that his franchise would be disheartened but, in truth, it’s simply the latest in a string of disappointments they’ve had to endure this year.
