Steve Nash was getting ready to practice with the Los Angeles Lakers on Monday when he tweaked his back before hitting the court. The bad news is that it’s unrelated to the nerve injury he’s been dealing with all season.

The team said that he’d try to practice again on Thursday, so it doesn’t sound like it’s too bad.

In the six games Nash played in, the team was 3-3, with the veteran point guard averaging only 6.7 points and 4.8 assists.
