Lakers Injury News: Christmas Return ‘Likely’ for Steve Nash

Los Angeles Lakers guard Steve Nash went through his first full-contact practice without any setbacks to his broken left leg on Thursday, and the veteran said it now seems “more likely” that he’ll return to the team on Christmas Day when they take on the New York Knicks, reports Ramona Shelburne of ESPN Los Angeles.


"There's no plan. I just want to get through today, see how I feel in the morning," Nash said. "If I'm able to practice (Friday), see how I feel Saturday, we'll just see how it goes. But I think Christmas is probably the most realistic."

Nash has been sidelined since sustaining a non-displaced fracture in his left leg on Halloween. While he was initially expected to be out six weeks, he’s gone on to miss roughly eight weeks due to the injury. Los Angeles has struggled through Nash’s injury, as the team is only 12-14 on the season.
