The last time you saw Los Angeles Lakers point guard Steve Nash was back in early November. That of course assumes you actually saw him as Nash has only played in six games for the Lakers this season.
But that is set to change on Tuesday evening as Nash is scheduled to play in his first game in over three months when the Minnesota Timberwolves host the Lakers.
Of course, when you tune in, you may struggle find the two-time NBA MVP consider he looks as if he aged about fifteen years.
Nash, 39, was doing his typical media round this morning and had his picture taken by Dave McMenamin – a picture which featured Nash rocking a salt and pepper beard.

The 17-year-veteran looks a lot different than many likely remember him.
If he stopped shaving for a few more days and got himself a Wilson volleyball, he might actually be a ringing doppelganger for Tom Hanks in the film Castaway.
Hopefully it’s not something in the water and Kobe Bryant returns looking normal.
