On cue, Mike Bresnahan of the LA Times is reporting that Mike D’Antoni and the rest of the Los Angeles Lakers are hoping that Steve Nash can return to the court, officially, next Tuesday. Nash has been out since late November, battling nerve root irritation, something that he’s been battling since he broke his leg a little over a year ago.

Post from Nov 20:

While many are already putting pen to paper (really finger to keys) to write that we’ve seen the last of Steve Nash, Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni said on Tuesday that his point guard is “going to try and do everything he can to come back” from the back, hamstring and nerve irritation issues that he’s been suffering from.

“He’s 39, almost 40 years old. I think he’s looking at, ‘What am I going to do when I’m 50?’ But no [he's not thinking of retiring],” D’Antoni told ESPN. “Now, whether he can get over this, we’ll see. We think he can. We hope he can. But there’s no talk of him sitting over there eating bon bons the rest of the way. No.”
