Steve Nash out at least 2 weeks

The injury-riddled tenure of Steve Nash with the Lakers has taken another bad twist. After spending much of the off-season rehabbing an ailing back, it all seems for naught as Nash will again miss time with a nerve injury in his back.



Recovery from the injury will include Nash receiving an epidural block, which he received multiple times last season with no success.



Nash will be re-evaluated in 10 days and either Nash will be cleared to play or a new timetable will be released. In the meantime, Mike D’Antoni said he’d stick with the backcourt of Steve Blake and Jodie Meeks.
