The Los Angeles Lakers are certain to be without guard Steve Blake tonight when they take on the San Antonio Spurs. There is also a chance that they'll be without fellow guards Steve Nash and Jodie Meeks, who are both considered doubtful to play in Game 3.
D’Antoni: “Realistically Meeks is more doubtful than Nash, but we’ll see how they feel.” Morris, Goudelock & Duhon expecting to see action.

Yesterday, coach Mike D'Antoni told reporters that Meeks is "more doubtful than Nash." That doesn't seem to be a ringing endorsement for Nash's health, as much as it says Meeks is unlikely to see much, if any, time tonight.
If the trio is unable to suit up, the Lakers will be without their top four guards -- don't forget that Kobe Bryant guy -- against the Spurs. Instead, San Antonio will receive a heavy dose of Darius Morris, Andrew Goudelock and Chris Duhon.
Morris started for Nash earlier in the season. Goudelock was MVP... of the D-League. And Duhon was a solid player... for the Duke Blue Devils.
Good luck Lakers.
