They said at least a week, and up to 4 weeks. Well today was officially a week. And I saw him practicing drills at shootaround. I think he may play on friday. I'm hoping he does, because we need the pnr. Every team crushes us with yet, and we'll probably be the best at it but we dont even try. Hopefully nash just ditches the princeton. Just for one game...

Good Lord, you guys scared the hell out of me coming into this thread reading those MCL tear comments.

The fact that he was doing basketball related drills today is a good sign.

I think they should keep him out for another week just to be safe and get him some rest.

Is that why athletes miss entire seasons with torn mcls


I think you are confusing MCL with ACL. An MCL is a collateral ligament, the knee is still stable when you damage it. Not so for an ACL or a PCL.

haven't heard anything.

fwiw, a few days ago on am710, dr. klapper said with that type of injury, on average he would expect a comeback in 3 weeks...7-10 days he thought was really really really optimistic.

Based on comments he made recently, I wouldn't be surprised if Phil (as coach) gave Nash similar instructions that Brown did, to to go away from the triangle when he saw it fit, especially earlier in the season when the offense was new, eventually developing into diverse offense where everyone is comfortable and there are a million ways to attack the defense.

These instructions to Nash is the main reason I liked them using the Princeton and one of the few correct decisions that Brown made, yet ironically it blew up in his face because Nash decided to get the offense down quickly by focusing on the Princeton alot more frequently than most anticipated. When Kobe basically ran the offense he mixed it up more than Nash did.

The reasons I believe Nash would be fine in the triangle are the same as why I thought he'd eventually be fine in the Princeton.....great passer and shooter, high IQ and he'd have the freedom to do his own thing when he saw fit.

The key would be to not get so caught up in the offense at first, stick with what you know mostly and gradually blend as you learn the triangle over time.

i like what you are saying. once we get the rebound, push the ball, beat everyone to the rim.. and if all 5 of the defenders are back already.. lets play the triangle..

I dont think they'll do much running personally, they just dont have the players for that style of play,but the offense will look alot more "free".

Phil's instructions would probably be alot similar to Brown's, learn and run the offense, but feel free to deviate and call your own plays whenever you want to.

I think Brown's annoying micro-management style probably made Nash feel pressure to run Princeton plays often and so he wound up placing too much focus on the new offense instead of doing what he should have done, and had the green light to do as well.

By Pincus
Point guard Steve Nash would welcome Phil Jackson if he's hired by the Lakers to replace Mike Brown as head coach.

"It'd be a coup for the franchise," said Nash. "His history with this club, with Pau [Gasol] and Kobe [Bryant] in particular, is fantastic. For me personally it would be a terrific experience."

Brown was fired by the Lakers on Friday. In the interim, assistant Bernie Bickerstaff has been running the team.

The Lakers and Jackson have already met to discuss the position and will continue to do so over the coming week.

Nash is intrigued by the possibility of playing in Jackson's triangle offense.

"It's won a lot of championships. It's hard to argue against that," said Nash. "I look at it as a great opportunity for me to try something new at a different stage of my career."

Nash was open-minded with Brown's hybrid Princeton offense. The dismissal caught him off guard.

"You're never used to it," said Nash. "It's a difficult part of our business. It's a very competitive business. It can be very cold-hearted in some ways, but that's the nature of it."

The Lakers are considering other candidates, in case a deal with Jackson cannot be reached. Former Phoenix Suns coach Mike D'Antoni still has strong bond with his former player.

"Obviously I think everyone knows how much I love Mike," said Nash. "If [D'Antoni] were to coach, it would be seamless and terrific for me, and I think the team as well."

Nash suffered a non-displaced leg fracture against the Portland Trail Blazers in the Lakers' second game of the season. He's out for another week with no clear timetable for his return.

"Mother Nature is a big component of this, no matter how terrific our staff's work is," said Nash.

I can't wait until he returns, at times I almost forget we even have him on our team. Hopefully when he does return he makes his presence more significant and does what Nash does best, pick and roll.
