Laker nation is finally receiving some good news after a season full of ups and downs — mostly downs. Mike D’Antoni expects all three of his point guards, Steve Nash, Jordan Farmar, and Steve Blake to return on Tuesday against Minnesota. Steve Nash will start. Riddled with injuries the three have only played a combined 49 games this season.
D’Antoni said he expects Nash, Blake and Farmar all to play against MIN.

D’Antoni says Nash will play the first 6-8 minutes of the first half, rest and then do the same thing the 2nd half.

Nash has been plagued with back issues since he signed with the Lakers in 2012, consistently using epidurals to ease his pain. At this point D’Antoni is just trying to ease him back into the line up so that he doesn’t stress his back out too much.
