EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- Los Angeles Lakers guard Steve Nash participated in some on-court activities during practice Monday as he continues to rehabilitate from the fractured fibula in his left leg.
The team will wait and see how his body responds to similar drills in the next several days as they continue to evaluate when the All-Star point guard can return to the lineup. He had suffered the leg injury in the Lakers' second game of the season.

The Lakers canceled an MRI that was scheduled Monday for Nash, opting to put him through a series of drills instead with strength coach Tim DiFrancesco.
"I really don't (know when Nash will return)," Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni said. "It's getting better every day. I know we keep saying that, but it is. Just when he's able to withstand some up-and-down, he'll play."
Steve Blake (strained abdomen) did not practice. He continues to be listed as day to day.
Nash and Blake have been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Indiana Pacers.

Thats like saying I would rather have Helen Hunt in a tub of whipped cream jnstead of Jessica Alba.
