Lakers News: Steve Nash And Steve Blake To Start Against T’Wolves

NBA: Sacramento Kings at Los Angeles Lakers

After a few months of injuries ripping this team to shreds, the Los Angeles Lakers are starting to get some of their veterans back healthy.

On Tuesday night, Steve Nash and Steve Blake will be back in the starting lineup according to Mike Bresnahan of the L.A. Times:

Nash has only played in six games this season as the result of numerous injuries that he’s struggled to bounce back from. The last time the two-time NBA MVP was on the floor was against the Timberwolves back on Nov. 11. Nash was diagnosed with nerve root irritation in his back after the game and had an uncertain timetable for a return as a result.

As for Blake, the veteran point guard has also missed considerable time this season. Blake played in 21 games before going down with an elbow injury that’s kept him out since early December.

Over the past few weeks, Blake has been practicing using only his left arm while participating and is finally ready to get back on the floor after a 26-game absence.

Along with Blake and Nash, Jodie Meeks will get the start at small forward with rookie Ryan Kelly at power forward and Robert Sacre taking over at center for the injured Pau Gasol.
