Everyone keeps talking about Bynum and Amare, but what about Nash? This Lakers team will never work unless Nash comes back to run the show. It seems like something that will linger for months.

They will be in the playoffs without him, they just need him to be healthy for the playoffs.

He'll be back in January at the latest imo. Not season ending. January, Feb, March, April. Lot of time to come back ready.

Bonus is he already knows the offense, and he's better than Morris, Blake, and Duhon combined

why? nash will pick up the offense no problem when he's back, and he will be back well before the playoffs. don't get me wrong, i don't really think its a great hire. but its ok and this isn't a reason against it since its not like nash's season is over.

Did anybody read the article? He is going to be re-evaluated on Friday (like they have said all along) and its day to day after that. This is not news. He's recovering from a small break in his leg. Pretty standard stuff. :rolleyes:

Gibby23

He has a broken leg. It takes about 4 to 6 weeks to fully heal. He will be back in 2 to 3 weeks. 1st week od december. Do you guys really think the Lakers would let him back before he is 100%? It gives the backups a chance to play, they need it big time.

Gibby23
11-21-2012, 12:39 PM

Who said that? It is a non-displaced fracture in the head of his fibula. It isn't a weight bearing bone and you can play on it after 2 weeks. Do you think the Lakers would put him on the court before the fracture is healed up? Bone bruse? lol.

JNoel
11-21-2012, 12:39 PM
Hate to think it, but this is going to be Nash's last year. Once injuries start to take a toll on a 40 year old after he basically stayed relatively healthy his whole career, you know he sees the light approaching.

Its worse than a bone bruse but better than a regular fracture or broken bone.

It's actually been three weeks now, possibly to the day, that he fractured it. That surpasses the day-to-day, one week and 2-3 week timetable.

Now he's indefinitely out.

Lakers would've gotten Phil over D'antoni if Nash weren't to come back. He'll be back before xmas. No need to rush his recovery in the 1st place, he knows the offense and we'll need him when it really matters, the playoffs.

Nash's game is so much different than the point guards on the bench behind him.
It kind of makes you wonder wtf were they thinking? He'll be fine though, I can see him getting back probably last week of December.

This kid is way to worried. He gets mad when baseball games are postponed due to rain. "But, they said they were playing today, see, they have the time on ESPN, and now it says postponed... They are never going to play."

Lol, what? :facepalm: The drama on these message boards. Its a tiny fracture that the Lakers are making sure completely heals before he plays game. Darrel Arthur (young guy) had the same thing and he is going to be out longer than Nash.

The kind of injury it is, is very reminiscent of when billups came to ny. He was injured 3 times in not even half a season the same way nash was. Hasn't stayed healthy since.

I would be worried about Nash if I was an la fan.

they are winning without him and their defense is better than if he was there.

That's true, but you can only do so much with Blake, Morris, and Duhon as your PG's for so long.....

People are acting as if this injury had something to do with his age. It really didn't in any way. Freak play where he collided with another player at an awkward angle.

Over how many games?

Is SNash not the catalsyt to a chip?

Will they sustain without a superstar PG under MD?

Can Blake/Duhon get the job done?

I say no...

Gibby23

thats what Im saying, atleast our D is better and it gives us time to find a backup and lets the backup PG's learn the PG dependant system.

Kobe is playing the PG role in the offense until Nash is out. When Nash comes back, they will both run it from time to time. Kobe has been great with it.

But he's very old for b-ball at this point though, and because of that it's going to be a lingering issue for him throughout the season.

Unless they let him take extra time to come back and save the old mans legs. I think they should let him sit for another 3 weeks. 50 to 60 games is a good number for him to play.

Agreed. Nash doesn't have the same 75-80 game player he used to be playing for this Laker team. I agree with what you said about Kobe filling the distributor role and how that's working out fine for now, so it's safe for Nash for miss time now. It's only November.

Hes getting assists is he truly running the offense

school me

Ive watched point forwards and offguards, not the same as a PG that completely holds the offense within their grasp

make sense?

Its not the same...

not for long term longevity/success just in spurts...

The offense is a P&R system or running and getting an early shot. The main play is the Kobe and Gasol P&R, they run that and Kobe either passes, or drives and finds another option. Gasol is a great passer also. Yes he is truly running the offense, even with a PG next to him. Kobe, Gasol, and Metta are used to not playing with a PG that runs the offense, Kobe has been doing it for years.

Thats not MD fully that works in spurts you need a true PG Kobe needs to be Kobe

Gasol will be great in this system tailor made

Metta needs to be that Marion clone lock down perimeter player

Long term success Im looking at not just get you over short term
