Steve Nash out of game with shin injury

Los Angeles Lakers point guard Steve Nash left Wednesday's game a second time after injuring his shin in the second quarter. Nash has a contusion in his lower left leg and will not return on Wednesday.

Nash injured his shin late in the second quarter when he collided with Portland's Damian Lillard. He limped off the court and met with the training staff before spending the rest of the first half in the locker room. He came out to start the third quarter wearing a protective sleeve over his shin and appeared ready to play the second half. After re-entering the game, Nash was clearly bothered by the injury and once again exited for the locker room.

Nash joins a long list of Lakers nursing injuries, including Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard. The injury comes at a tough time for the Lakers as Los Angeles is scheduled to play the Clippers on Friday. Playing a third game in three days and attempting to guard Chris Paul would already be a tough situation for Nash. Attempting to do that at less than 100 percent will be a serious challenge for the 38-year-old Nash.

Steve Nash limps to locker room after collission

Los Angeles Lakers point guard Steve Nash left Wednesday's game against the Portland Trail Blazers during the second quarter. Nash collided with Blazers point guard Damian Lillard and appeared to bump knees with Lillard. Nash then limped off the court and walked back to the Lakers' locker room after briefly talking with the medical staff.

The Lakers' training staff said Nash injured his shin, and not his knee or ankle, but is expected to return in the second half, according to Mike Trudell of NBA.com.

The injury occurred after Nash had played 15 minutes against Portland. After scoring just seven points in his Lakers debut on Tuesday, Nash had scored two points on 1-of-3 shots before heading back to the locker room. He did, however, have four assists before leaving.

Steve Blake entered the game for Nash and played the rest of the second quarter. The injury is just the latest to hit the Lakers, who have also been dealing with injuries to Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard.
