Mike D'Antoni 'doubts' Steve Nash will play again this year
Los Angeles Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni "doubts" that point guard Steve Nash will see the court again this year after reaggravating a nerve injury in his leg, but he has not ruled the former MVP out completely, according to ESPN Los Angeles reporter Dave McMenamin.
Nash has had difficulties with injuries throughout his time in Los Angeles. He suffered a fracture in his leg in his second game with the team in 2012 and then missed significant time due to nerve root irritation caused by the injury.
This season saw Nash sidelined with pain in his leg in November. He returned for four games in February but was sent back to the bench when a collision intensified the injury.
