Lakers Injury Update: Blake, Farmar, Nash All Ruled Out Tomorrow

The slew of injuries to Lakers point guards has been unlike anything that has ever happened in the history of the NBA. Kendall Marshall has been the Lakers lone true point guard for the last month, but he may finally be receiving some help.

Steve Nash, Steve Blake, and Jordan Farmar all practiced for the Lakers today, and Lakers Nation reporter Serena Winters gave an update to the three point guards’ status:

This was to be expected as getting on the floor for practice is not a sign of immediate return. It is encouraging to see them on floor, however, and the team looks like they are finally getting some positive news on the injury front.

Just as there were hopes that Nash could return tomorrow, he quickly quieted those rumors as ESPN’s Dave McMenamin reported:

The Lakers could very quickly go from not enough point guards, to too many in just one week. It will be interesting to see how the rotation will work out when everyone is healthy. Marshall has done an excellent job in running the show, but Nash and Farmar are sure to get their minutes. Blake could see more time at the shooting guard position as a result.

Either way, it will be good to see these guys back on the floor when they finally return.
