While much of the injury watch surrounding the Los AngelesLakers has been focused on center Dwight Howard, the team also received good
news regarding point guard Steve Blake. Steve Nash’s backup practiced
yesterday, rejoining the Lakers much sooner than expected, reports Dave McMenamin of ESPNLosAngeles.com:
"The kid's just tough as nails," Lakers coach Mike Brown said. "I don't know if he'll ever get out of shape. He only knows one way to play, which is hard, and he's worked extremely hard on his game this summer. Watching him, you couldn't tell that this was his first practice. He was Steve Blake."
