Los Angeles Lakers guard Steve Nash has small non-displaced fracture in the head of his left fibula and is out for a minimum of a week, the team announced Saturday.

Nash did not play in the Lakers' 105-95 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers Friday night. Nash was injured when he collided with Portland guard Damian Lillard with 2:26 remaining in the second quarter of Wednesday night's loss to the Blazers. Backup Steve Blake is expected to take Nash's place in the starting lineup. Blake started the Clippers game and finished with eight points and two assists before fouling out.

Nash, 38, is averaging 4.5 points and four assists this season for the 0-3 Lakers.
