Lakers News: Steve Nash Out For Second Half With Back Pain

The Los Angeles Lakers got more of the same from veteran point guard Steve Nash on Sunday night against the Minnesota Timberwolves with the 39-year-old having a poor performance before dealing with back pain.

Nash didn’t come out of the locker room after halftime and will not return according to Lakers Nation reporter Serena Winters via Twitter:

Ever since Nash broke his leg in the second game of the 2012-13 NBA season, the two-time NBA MVP simply hasn’t been the same. The veteran has shown flashes of his former form at times, but it’d be safe to say he’s no longer the player that gave the Lakers so much trouble while with the Phoenix Suns.

Nash will be evaluated by Dr. Robert Watkins tomorrow to determine how much time the veteran may miss or if it’s time to consider retirement.
