Report: Steve Nash Could Miss Up to 4 Weeks With Leg Injury


When the first reports came out that Nash would only miss a week with his fracture in his left leg, most had a raised eyebrow.

Now that a few days have passed, it is looking more like Nash will be out much longer. Here is what Mike Brown had to say.

“You obviously hope he’s back as soon as possible,” Brown said Sunday after the team’s shootaround. “But the one thing you don’t want to do, you don’t want to compromise his long-term health for him coming back quicker than he should. So, (trainer) Gary Vitti and the staff are on top of it. We’ll just wait and play it out from there.”

A Lakers source is saying Nash will be out closer to four weeks than one. I would imagine the Lakers will have won a game by then.
