The Los Angeles Lakers were hoping that point guard Steve Nash would be a big part of the team moving forward, however, it looks like the star could be out of action indefinitely. Unfortunately for the team, the Lakers have announced that Nash will be out indefinitely with a non-displaced fracture in his left leg.
Los Angeles Lakers guard Steve Nash was examined by team doctor Steve Lombardo and had an MRI exam. Results of the MRI showed a small non-displaced fracture in the head of his fibula (left leg).
The injury occurred in the second quarter of Wednesday night’s game in Portland against the Trail Blazers. Nash is expected to be out a minimum of a week. He will be re-examined and an update on his condition will be given at that time.
It is just the latest setback for the Lakers as their roster is looking to gel early in the season.
Here is a video of ESPN announcing the impact of the injury:
