Nash is rehabilitating with Lakers strength coach Tim DiFrancesco, testing the leg. Seems unlikely he'd play tonight.
Tonight, the Lakers are most likely without a member of their “Super Team.” With a contusion on Steve Nash’s lower right leg, the starting point guard is still a game time decision for tonight.
“It’s a game-time decision. It doesn’t look good, but they haven’t ruled him out yet.” – Coach Brown
After this morning’s shoot around, Coach Mike Brown expressed the difficulty of tonight’s game with or without Nash. Howard, however, doesn’t sound worried.
“If he doesn’t play tonight, we’ve been going over a lot of film in the back, and I’ve been working on my guard skills. I might be Steve Nash Howard. Tragic Johnson that’s what they’ll call me.”
