Mike D’Antoni Not Interested in Talking About Nash’s Return

Steve Nash 11 11 13The Los Angeles Lakers are dealing with some difficult injuries and without Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash in the lineup, it is hard for the team to stay competitive.

Bryant’s return date is still up in the air and at this point, so is Steve Nash’s. The point guard is currently dealing with nerve damage in his back and a rough estimate has him being sidelined for at least two more weeks.

Coach Mike D’Antoni spoke to the Los Angeles Times and he has no interest is talking about how Nash is doing or when he will be able to return the court.

“There’s always going to be a debate but we’re not going to debate it, talk about it,” Mike D’Antoni said Tuesday. “He’s going to try to get ready, he’s going to try to play and we’re going to try to win. It’s really simple for us. It’s not real difficult.”

Steve Nash has not had a very productive season as he has only averaged 6.7 points and 4.8 assists per game. The Lakers have been able to perform well without Nash, but no one really knows how long Steve Blake and Jordan Farmar can keep up their level of play.
