Lakers News: Steve Blake Playing Tuesday Labeled A “Possibility”

steve-blake-game-winnerThe Lakers have been decimated by injuries over the course of the season, losing just about every guy that has attempted to play PG for them at one point or another. One of those guys is Steve Blake, who has been out for an extended period of time with an injured elbow.

However, like a gaggle of other Lakers, Blake is hoping to be back in action soon. According to team reporter Mike Trudell of Lakers.com, Blake might be targeting next Tuesday as his return date.

A little pain is better than a lot of it, I suppose. And Blake is hoping that by Tuesday night in Minnesota he’ll be ready to rumble.

If Blake does come back, expect him to get most of the PG minutes that have been going to Kendall Marshall. Even though the former D-Leauger has been playing well in Blake/Nash/Farmar’s absence, Blake will still (theoretically) be the best active guard on the roster when he returns.

As for the rest of the injured Lakers, Farmar is still a ways from coming back while Nash is hoping to be back next week and Xavier Henry is hoping to be re-evaluated soon.
