Speed was an issue, but injury and recovery was definitely a worry as well.

Steve Nash proved this when he went down against the Sacramento Kings/ The team revealed that it is a “small non-displaced fracture in the head of his fibula (left leg).”

At first, it was thought that it was a contusion, but an MRI revealed different.

Nash will be out for at least a week, and will be reevaluated then. No doubt he's a tough player, but it's the beginning of the season, and he'll be desperately needed in the post-season. If he plays before it's fully healed, then it will be a lingering injury all year long.

It's also been speculated that Nash could be out for four weeks. In that time they'll play ten western conference games and two in the eastern conference.

Luckily the Lakers were able to get their first win without Nash which should at least give them some confidence going into these next weeks.

The Lakers' organization is being vague, as always, so hopefully it really is only as bad as they're making it sound.

Optimistic for now, but his age is a big big problem.
