His return went from a week or 2 to now almost 2 months


I've said this before, but the whole week thing was an extreme best case scenario.

A fracture like Nash's is 4-6 weeks. We just passed the 3 week mark of the injury on Wednesday.

This is kind of reminding me of Bynum's situation in 2008. Hopefully, the same thing doesn't happen.

bynum's injury was to his knee and involved a great deal of cartilage

steve nash's injury is a crack to the smallest bone in the leg, he'll come back from this and will never be bothered by it again

The two aren't related so comparison is pointless, Nash is ready to go as this couldn't be better for his style of play. Tougher game tonite

John Ireland just said to his knowledge the injury Nash has takes 4-6 weeks to heal. When they left Staples center after the Brooklyn game he said Steve is still in pain and limping. A realistic date for Steve's return would be Christmas. Anything before that would be higly optitmistic and a bonus

yeah honestly Blake's injury at this point is hurting us more than Nash's is.

Blake in this system seems to be D'antoni's most anticipated addition aside from when Nash comes back so I'd like to see how Blake is implemented. If Blake comes back and plays great in D'antoni's system then that means that Nash can rest even longer.

6 weeks will take us to two weeks before Christmas. I say the week of the 16th is when we'll see him back.

4-6 weeks and take the upper limit because he's in his late thirties and injuries always take longer when you're this old.

Late thirties? You're too kind. Try early forties.

On a side note, we need to hire the Suns medical staff, Im sure cheapazz Suns owner doesnt pay them well. They resurrected Michael Redd's career last year and now Jermaine O'Neal is killing it off the bench...8points, 5.3 rebounds. 1.8 blocks in 18 minutes

Nothing you can do about these iinjurys. They happen. Anyone can get a leg fracture. You can be extremely fit and young still be in nash's situation. Just got to remember at least he didnt get this in the playoffs.

we've had gary vitti for close to 30 years and pay him top dollar to do his job. if we could have had a better medical staff, i'm sure we would've had one by now.

The injury is painful (almost every bone injury/fracture/break is) but if this were the playoffs, he could "theoretically" play with it.

I have no problem with him sitting out until he's 100%. It happened at the perfect time in the season with him not needing the crash course on the new offense.

He'll be back by January and he'll be perfectly fine.


The other thing people are forgetting is this gives him LOTS of time to have his back re-evaluated also...and lets him rest it...also be fresh for the bulk of the season playing minutes with the starters AND the bench...with him at the helm, the same bench that can't buy a bucket may become one of the league's best.

He should be fine...not even the Lakers staff can screw up a small fracture in the fibula...

Quick question: It was a non-displaced fracture right? If that were the case, patients are normally put in a cast or boot (depending on which bone) to immobilize it to give the bone time to heal (usually 1-4 weeks depending on the bone), then soft cast and crutches (until next re-eval) and then short rehab to rebuild strength in the (slightly) atrophied muscles...

1-3 months is pretty standard...depending on the bone and evaluations...but if he HAD to play with the injury he has, he could...it would be painful and he wouldn't be nearly as fast or mobile as he is but he could play...just like Kobe's played with all of the avulsion fractures in his fingers and wrist (IIRC). Not sure if Nash has been out a month yet so I don't see where panic could be coming from...
