I'd really like to see what the training/medical staff thinks of his return. If they're agreeing with him, then I don't think it's crazy to think he can be back in two weeks.


From what I've gathered attempting to play or work through any type of nerve issue can affect that body part long term. There are also extreme cases where surgery is needed in order to move the nerve to a location where less stress will be placed upon it, however this is information I've received regarding nerves in your arm such as an ulnar nerve. I'm not sure whether the same applies but regardless it's a very annoying and time consuming injury.

Oh I agree. But I think that's been the hold up here so far. He's complained about pain like that for a while now.

My personal feeling is that this nerve issue is the last one and since it's progressed (he can at least run now although not full speed) it's just taking a while to get there. Fractures can put pressure on a nerve that wasn't there before. I think that the nerve issue though isn't so new that it'll be added time, I think it's been part of the time so far (if that makes sense).

management needs to waive or trade a player for cash or 2nd round picks or sumthin and sign delonte west... that seems like the most realistic option

Why? Once we heal up, we've got guards coming out of our ears. Unless we can get someone to bite on Blake (I have no idea how...), we don't need West.

Duhon has earned the chance to make that spot his for a while. Nash/Duhon actually looks great from a depth standpoint. Meeks has looked fantastic.

West isn't really necessary anymore since the emergence of those two.

duhon i have accepted should be our backup pg.. even when blake comes back... once blake comes back then duhon starting and blake back up until nash comes back... i was suggesting for them to try to get west if nash is out for long period of time or hell if it gets to that... the rest of the season... to sumhow get rid of or even waive say morris and djo and sign west... but its more of a wait till the last minute type of thing to do

He really will help this team. They're not playing together on both ends and i think Nash can fix that for the most part. On O its just gunna look so much more fluid for everyone especially out bigs who will have more PnR ball movement and less post ups which are inefficient. Him running the offense means less turnovers and a more calm offense then this chaotic-no one knows what to do-offense.

On defense it will be better from our backcourt with him in it. Obviously not on a physical or speed level but on an intelligence level. He knows HOW to defend and what to do in certain situations where Duhon or Morris make those mental mistakes. But more importantly I think it comes down to Nash ability to unite teams and build chemistry with them on the court. Its hard when hes not playing.

This team needs to unite together and play as an actual team. They need to feel the sense of urgency and need some better leadership. Kobe is always gunna be Kobe and do it his way which works for some and mostly not for others. Dantoni seems to not be able to get these guys going as EVERY game they come out slow lethargic and without a sense of care. Almost as if they think they're better than everyone and dont need to try. Nash is a leader and with his ability to make offense smoother it will intern help the D and the guy's mental state about it.

As for possible PG acquisition, that makes sense. D'Antoni's offense chugs on good point guard play dominating the ball. Duhon and Morris ain't gonna cut it. Delonte West time?

It just feels that way.

What's really a downer about these setbacks is that it prolongs the wait to see if Nash can revive Gasol's career. I think we need to know asap because if he can't then we need to trade Pau and mesh in the new pieces to salvage any hopes for a playoff run.


Only way to revive Gasol is put him in the post...not sure that will happen in this system

Nash is probably going to try and sit out the entire season so he can escape the pressure these idiots are placing on him to go and save them.

We expect a 38 year old with a bum leg (whose best game is to run and gun) to help us? What about point guard on defense? We're in trouble! The Lakers need to seriously upgrade the point guard spot.

Were not getting rid of Pau without seeing him with Nash. What we need is a good PG who can defend,create for himself aswell as others, and shoot well.

Delonte would be perfect. Keep Duhon, cut your losses with Morris, and play Delonte until Nash is back. All we need is someone who can defend well enough and do something that the defense has to react to. If i were defending Duhon or Morris all you have to do it stay in front of them. Dont need to expend ANY energy bc everytime they'll give up the ball or turn it over after barely any pressure. Then blow buy them on the other end everytime. Delonte could fix that and really play well with Jamison and Meeks when you think of the big picture down the road this season

delonte west should have been signed the minute he was cut. morris is never going to be anything and duhon is ok in rotation not starting.

what's sessions up to, he'd succeed in this system

hill for sessions, sign delonte west, slide kobe to SF, start west at SG. now we are talking

sessions is too valuable to the bobcats. hes playing very well there. Delonte seems to be the only guy bc were not trading Pau yet (without seeing him with nash) and have no other assets to give up

We're at a 15 man roster, right? So, somebody has to be cut. I wouldn't mind if Morris was cut and we signed Delonte. Delonte can backup Nash and we can place Duhon as the third string. That would make more sense from a depth standpoint.

The good thing about Delonte is he can play the 1/2, guard both positions effectively, and I think play an MDA system effectively. He's a solid backup.

I don't see Delonte as possible. One of the main problems with this team is chemistry.. The pieces don't work together at all.. Bringing in new players isn't going to help at all in that regard. The only way I see us really shaking up the roster is if it's a no brainer. If Pau for Love or Granger or West becomes possible, sure, we'll shake things up. Maybe a small deal for bench players that's also cuts dead weight ala the Ariza trade etc. Their focus is going to be on getting the guys playing together, & rightfully so. 2 more weeks with no Nash isn't going to kill our season. Remember, this is his system. D'antoni has already said he's putting the ball in his hands when he gets back.. This is why the guy got the job. It certainly wasn't because of his great fit with the rest of the roster. Nash will figure it out, have faith people.

Put it this way. Even Smush was better than Morris. I really wanted to like Morris but I have given up. Way too stupid to play PG in the NBA. Dump Morris & Ebanks and sign West and CDR.
