Los Angeles Lakers guard Steve Nash underwent an MRI exam, which confirmed several preexisting issues related to his hip and back, which are causing nerve irritation and contributing to his hamstring pain and weakness. Nash received an epidural injection this morning, and will not play in tomorrow night’s game against the Houston Rockets. It is hopeful that he will be able to return to play in the next several days.

Why?


Cause Nash has been injured all year & probably won't play in the playoffs.

That's why we should have kept Sessions LOL, Steve is breaking down quick! We already had a solid 26 year old PG why would we let him go? Sure he was terrible at times vs OKC but don't forget Mike Brown slowed him down. He would be perfect for this offense.

First Gasol with his ultrasound, now Nash with an epidural? Am I reading this right? These are guys we are talking about right?

The best case scenario for the Lakers is if he retires, but he isn't walking away from $20 mil. I dont think he can get through a full season anymore. Hell look at Ginobili, hes much younger than Nash and he cant get through a season, he hasn't played in 10 games

Such a waste of assets.. But I can't blame the FO, a good PG was needed for this team, they just chose the wrong fit.

I was thrilled to bring in Nash, he's a great teammate, shooter, clutch player, but the guy is old. I don't see this improving next season, he's still going to be old and he's away from the miracle workers on the Phoenix medical staff. Look what's happened to him and Grant Hill since they left, Hill has played 40 games, Nash has played 50. At this point, combining his injuries and he and Kobe really never figuring out how to play great together, I'm ready to call Nash a failed experiment/gamble. What can be done I have no idea, but I see him missing some games next season as well at 40 years old.

They should just fire D'Antoni and make Nash the coach. I think Steve's playing days are behind him, unless you want him to join the team midway through the season and play like 35 games other than that I think its safe to say hes done playing an 82 game season + playoffs. No wonder he didnt want to leave Phoenix the last few years their medical staff are geniuses

That's some more bad news. I don't want to speculate but it doesn't sound good for seeing him in the playoffs if we make it.

So, basically, he's not coming back.

I should get an assist for that. It's an intentional pass to oneself, so it's an assist. That way people can't say all I do is shoot.

When you hear the word epidural it means there is nerve inflammation. It means you are talking about treating the nerve at it's originSPINE!

There r 2 things that primarily cause thigh pain. Either the problem stems from the structures there or the pain is referred from the spine.

Steve Nash won't play WED night. Getting an epidural for nerve inflammation is most troubling. When structural injury lead to nerve=concern

If it's that serious he needs to shut it down. And the disappointment with him has escalated quickly, but it's been on my mind for a while now, he hasn't looked like the same old Nash the entire season. He gets the ball stolen a lot by quicker guards, he stumbles and falls way more than I ever remember, he's looked old and like the league has passed him up a lot of the time, other than his ability to shoot that age can't take away. I don't think it's crazy to think out loud that if he's having this many health issues that retirement has to at least be brought up.

Yeah he's had chronic back issues and if there's nerve damage right now originating from his spine...

He might be forced to retire this summer after all.

So what? Even then he changed his offense from last year & it doesn't make Sessions any older. He was a good fit for our team, more than we can say for Nash who has basically been out all year.

Would he walk away from $20 mil though? How can he retire while another teammate is right there trying to come back from a serious injury. Im just thinking out loud here playing devil's advocate, not taking sides either way

Sessions was pretty much gone the 1st week of free agency he wanted no part of Mike Brown, we didnt have Howard, Jamison, Meeks, etc etc and there was talk about Pau getting traded. And lets face it we had Sessions last year and instead Steve Blake was playing 4th Q minutes ahead of him vs DEN and OKC series, it just wasnt working out as the year progressed, there was no reason for him to return to the team on 1st week of July or for the team to beg for his services

I think he still gets paid part of it even if he retires, though I'm not sure exactly how it works.

I dont think he even gets paid 50%. I remember there was a huge controversy regarding this with Portland Darius Miles and then Portland/Brandon Roy last year
