Lakers' Steve Nash injures leg again in loss to the Bulls

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

Last season, Los Angeles Lakers' point guard Steve Nash suffered a fracture in his leg during the second game of the regular season. It's an injury that still bothered him into the early parts of this seasn when he missed weeks with nerve root irritation stemming from the fracture in November of 2012. During the Lakers' Sunday loss to the Chicago Bulls, Nash collided a bit with Kirk Hinrich and immediately felt pain in the same spot where he suffered the fracture.

Nash stayed in the game for a little over four minutes after it happened in the third quarter but didn't return after being subbed out at the 5:00 minute mark of the third. After the game, he said the nerve was "on fire" after Hinrich kneed him in the spot of the previous fracture.

It's bad news for Nash, but hopefully he won't have to miss much, if any time on the floor. This was just the ninth game of the season for him and third in the previous four games since he returned from back issues. He's averaging just 8.2 points and 5.0 assists while shooting 36.6 percent from the field.
