Steve Nash still can't run without leg pain

Lakers point guard Steve Nash is still recovering from a leg contusion he suffered on Halloween and said he still can't run without pain. The 39-year-old has missed all of November for the injury and expects to be out at least another week.

The Lakers gave up four draft picks to acquire the guard earlier this year and offered him a three-year contract. While a starting lineup of Nash, Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard, Pau Gasol and Metta World Peace looks good on paper, all five have had age or injury concerns.

At the original time of the injury, Nash thought it was a minor issue, saying "Luckily it’s not any major structurally or something. It’s just a contusion in that area."

He will likely have another MRI on Friday, while the struggling 7-8 Lakers continue to wait for his return.
