Los Angeles Lakers Rumors: Will Steve Nash Miss Two More Weeks?

By Brian Ethridge, Posted: 12/03/12 11:32AM EST

As far as rumors go, fans of the Los Angeles Lakers will not like hearing this one. The team has been without Steve Nash for several games already and they may have to get used to not having him on the court for several more games. His leg injury is still hampering him and he remains out indefinitely. Keep reading to find out when he will likely return.

The Los Angeles Lakers brought in Steve Nash to be their main ball disturber. Unfortunately, he has been their main bench warmer because he has been unable to play. It was initially believed that Nash will be ready to return by Christmas time. Now, only God knows when he will finally return to the hardwood.

"Since I can't run, I'm not going to play this week," Nash said. "The recovery time is getting better. But it's a small improvement."

The good news is, Nash is finally feeling a little improvement in his leg injury. The bad news is, he clearly is not very confident in setting a return date. And make no mistake about it, there is absolutely no way that the Los Angeles Lakers play Steve Nash if he is not 100% healthy. With that said, we would not be a bit surprised if Steve Nash is out until January.

Hopefully our prediction is wrong and Steve Nash will return to the basketball court much sooner that we expect. But if we were fans of the Los Angeles Lakers, we would not hold our breath. That ultimately means that Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard, Metta World Peace, Pau Gasol and the rest of the Lakers will all continue to struggle to win games until Steve Nash is able to return.

Hopefully the Los Angeles Lakers will be able to get a few more wins under their belt so there isn't too much pressure on Nash when he finally is able to return.
