What exactly is wrong with him? haven't been on twitter much these past few days and I must've missed the diagnosis

He was having muscle spasms in his hips, but tonight it was his hamstring - a strain. Depends upon how serious it is. He is supposed to be examined in LA today. So I'll keep my eyes open for an update.

He's not playing tonight because of the hip injury.

I'm sorry but he needs to go in the offseason. His health is going downhill fast & he's not going to play up to his potential as long as Kobe is in a Lakers jersey. Kobe demands more defensive attention when he handles the ball & it's easier for him to make plays. Hopefully we can send him home to Canada for Lowry + pieces. If we can't get a younger athletic PG for him maybe we package him with Metta & land a starting SF.

Yep with Kobe being the PG and the way Blake has shot the 3 , unfortunately Nash isn't that needed ...

Blake isn't a great defender but he's feisty and never gives up while Nash would get owned by any backup PG ...

No, he's not, but we'll keep him for next year and trade his expiring. Nothing wrong with that.

If we manage to win the 'ship next season, I think he'll hang it up.

I thought all along that he'll retire with Kobe. With increased talks of next year being Kobe's last, I think it will be Nash's finale as well.

Anyone think he might hang 'em up this summer?

He's had nothing but injuries to go along with what is probably his worst season in a long time. Or does he hold on one more year and either risk hurting the team more or himself?

I'd rather he retire than go through another season like this. Was hoping he'd at least have a chance to compete for a ring after joining this team, but to see him go out like this is sad.

I see nothing sad about it, he got his money, he got his preference of playing close to home/family and chance to compete (at least to start off with). Its us who should be sad, I fore one questionned the excitement since day 1 of his signing. Yea he's better than anything we had over the years but giving a 39yr old nearly 10mill/yr with a well document back problem was questionnable. Neither of the two other options on his radar would've been any better (NY/Tor). NY is at a better record than us but IMO he would not have fit that team any better then what current Felton is doing. Beside's playing off ball, Nash didn't have to sacrifice anything of sorts to come here, pretty much got his cake and ate it too. Now Jamison on the other hand actually gave up a whole bunch more in monetary compensation to come here.

You wouldn't rather have a younger, quicker PG who plays defense? Nash is still a huge name we can get good value for him. I just don't think he fits our needs as well as a player like I described.

People who think we're trading Nash are out of their mind.

Not unless Nash and Phoenix want to hook up again. He came here to win first, but also because it is near his kids. We're not going to be the jerks that trade a guy like Nash away from his kids.

He's either a Laker or he retires.

Maybe he wants to retire in Canada.. I'd be happy with Lowry. Maybe Mitch can get us glass ankles Curry & keep Nash in Cali close to his kids.

Lakers are not trading Nash, and he will be around until the contract ends.

I don't think Nash has been that big of a factor one way or the other this year, and that should be shocking. He isn't so bad that you laugh and turn off the game. He also isn't what we thought we were getting. Turns out Steve Nash on the Lakers is a streaky shooter with good ball handling who gets screened really easily. I don't think LA is better without him, I just don't think they're very much better WITH him either.

I don't know what he would look like running the team without Kobe, but it doesn't matter. Much of what made Nash a legend is NOT on display in LA. It isn't his fault, and he's doing his best but...

...It didn't up being the right move. Bummer.

Then again, if we make the playoffs? Maybe that's where Sessions folds and Nash rises. It's a pressure cooker, and Mitch build a veteran squad.

Are his kids in Canada or Phoenix?

And the difference between Phoenix and LA and Phoenix and Oakland is pretty damn far.

D'Antoni after Sat. practice on Nash: "I don't think he's going to go tomorrow." Would (essentially) be his 4th straight game out.

F***... This is putting so much pressure on the team... Especially Kobe.

I don't understand how a team can have this many injuries...

because our team D and the others positions were solid enough on D to counter Fish weakness which clearly isn't the case today ... plus NBA style of play has changed a lot these latest 3 seasons
