Steve Nash still not able to jog, work on court

Christopher Hanewinckel-US PRESSWIRE

Nash is still extremely limited and his fractured left leg does not appear to be close to fully healed.

It may not be another setback, but it does appear like we'll be waiting even longer than expected for Steve Nash to return to form. According to a report by ESPNLA's Ramona Shelburne, Nash is still not able to jog and he has not started doing any on court activity.

"I can't jog yet so ... I don't think so," Nash said when asked if he thought there was a chance he could play Tuesday, after being re-evaluated by the Lakers team doctors on Monday.

"Hopefully it's something that resolves soon," Nash said. "Nobody really knows because it's not like tissue or bone. It's painful. It's under control right now, but it's still very sensitive so it can flare up. We just need to let the nerves settle down."

Nash said that he had been "progressing a little bit" but that recent nerve pain was a reason for a concern.

Nash had tried to do some stationary on-court drills about a week ago, but he experienced some pain afterward and the Lakers decided to cut back on that type of work.

"It kind of flared up so we kind of cut back on that," he said. "It wasn't anything bad, it was more that I just realized I'm not really ready for that."

I know we are all chomping at the bit to finally see Nash take the floor with Mike D'Antoni on the sidelines but at this point I am just hoping that Nash is ready to go by the time the playoffs start.
