Steve Nash has long been battling injuries in his short Lakers career, and another flared up on Sunday evening. After a lackluster first half, Nash stayed in the locker room for the second half due to back pain.
Nash wasn’t too eager to discuss his injury post game, which could be a sign of the seriousness of it. Nevertheless, the oft-injured point guard is 39 years old, as we know, and is far from someone who can make positive contributions on a nightly basis anymore. What the Lakers and Nash decide at this point will be key in how the final two seasons of Nash’s contract play out.
