NASH SHOWS IMPROVEMENT TO PLAY AGAIN
Tue, 18 Dec 2012 01:30 AM EST

The Los Angeles Lakers lost their 4th straight game, falling 116-107 to the New York Knicks, but help may be on the way in the form of Steve Nash.

Nash, who has been sidelined the past 21 games with a fractured fibula in his left leg, said after the game that he has worked some on-court running into his rehab and plans to practice with the team in L.A when the Lakers return from their 4-game trip.

“Hopefully, I can practice,” Nash asserted. “We’ll see. I am definitely getting better. We’ll see if I continue to improve and there are no setbacks, then I may be able to practice.

“On the court, I have been running the final day and a half, and [my leg] has been replying well. So, I haven’t done a really huge load, big amount, but it’s something.”

Nash declared he does not have a return game circled in his mind. The Lakers play the Bobcats, followed by a road game at Golden State and then another game against the Knicks at Staples Center on Christmas day.

“I’m not really sure how it’ll respond,” Nash said. “I still can’t do certain things. I am just knocking down hurdles, so the 1st one is to be in a position to run, and then you hop the next couple of hurdles and take some contact and see how my body responds.”

Nash’s teammates are crying out for the former 2-time MVP to come back.

“The more time we were given on the floor, the better we intend to be,” Kobe Bryant recounted. “A couple key men have been out of there. Steve is one of the best passers this game has ever seen. He is going to do a great job of getting guys open looks and guys in position to be successful.” Betting lines

Nash was already managing expectations, however.

“If I come back and we take off, by no means am I the savior,” Nash recounted. “If I come back and we struggle with it, it’s not going to be all on me. It’s a team sport. We all got to work. And if people want wish to judge us when I come back, that’s fine. I am not bothered by it. I just need to focus upon getting as fit as I can to try and help the team as much as I can and let the chips fall.”

The 8-time All-Star declared watching the Lakers stumble to a 9-14 record without him has been problematic, but he has avoided rushing back before his leg is fully healed.

“It’s a tough situation to watch the team struggle with myself, Steve Blake and Pau [Gasol] out of the lineup,” Nash said. “The guys are hobbled a little bit [without us]. To watch the guys struggle, the right decision is to come back when you’re 100%, to prevent further problems than to be out for another extended period. On the other hand, there’s the feeling amongst everyone, we all want to get back out and just help.”
