Steve Nash will miss at least four more games as he continues to recover from a leg injury.

Los Angeles Lakers point guard Steve Nash will miss at least the rest of the week as he works his way back from a fractured fibula.

New Lakers head coach Mike D'Antoni said Nash would miss Tuesday's game against the Brooklyn Nets and also sit out at least the next three games. That means Nash will miss this week, but has yet to be ruled out of the Lakers' Nov. 27 game against Indiana.

Nash has played in just two games this season. He fractured his fibula during the first half of Los Angeles' Oct. 31 game against the Portland Trail Blazers. To make matters worse, the Lakers will also be without backup point guard Steve Blake this week. Blake missed the last three games due to an abdomen injury and will not play on Tuesday or for the rest of the week.

Darius Morris has started at point guard in place of Blake and Nash.
