Lakers News: Nash Calls Injury Plagued Season “Most Frustrating”

nashtyThe Los Angeles Lakers signed Steve Nash to a three-year contract over the off-season, but the front office did not expect Nash to be sidelined for 29 games due to various injuries.

Nash started his series of injuries in just the second game of the Lakers’ season, something that forced him to miss 24 matches. The Hall of Fame bound point guard is currently dealing with another setback that has caused him to now miss five consecutive games. At this point, it is unclear when Nash will return and he is questionable Friday night when the Lakers host the Warriors.

Nash recently spoke to the Daily News and he called his 2012-13 season perhaps the most frustrating one of his career.

“Right up there, if not the most frustrating,” said Nash, who joined the Lakers this offseason on a three-year, $27 million deal. “I’ve played a long time so I can’t recall all those years. Maybe it’s because of the freshness that it feels.”

The Lakers need Nash on the court to run the offense efficiently and he has a knack for finding his teammates open shots. Even though Kobe Bryant has been playing incredibly over the past several games, Nash would have made his life easier with his passing ability.

Los Angeles just got Metta World Peace back into the lineup after his meniscus tear and it is hoping Nash can come back as soon as he can and help the team in the last three games of the season.
