The Los Angeles Lakers re-examined point guard Steve Blake's abdomen and confirmed he still suffers from a strain that has sidelined him for the majority of November, which will keep him off of the court for at least two more weeks.

The Los Angeles Lakers have re-examined backup point guard Steve Blake today and the results show he still suffers from an abdominal strain that he suffered during a win against the Sacramento Kings on November 11th, per a release from the official Lakers website.

EL SEGUNDO – Lakers guard Steve Blake was examined today by Dr. Steven Yoon and had an MRI exam.

The exam confirmed that Blake still has an abdominal strain. As a result, he will be out at least another two weeks. - Lakers.com

With no specifics on Steve Nash's return, the Lakers will rely on their 3rd and 4th string point guards, Darius Morris and Chris Duhon, respectively. Mike D'Antoni, who in his introductory press conference stated he has been trying to get Blake on his roster for "10 years" will have to keep on waiting. Despite how well Morris and Duhon have been playing, the cracks showed in their most recent loss to the Indiana Pacers, where they combined for 1 point and 3 assists. Considering D'Antoni's offense heavily relies on point guard play, this has slowed down the progress the Lakers can make as a team considerably.

Updates on Steve Blake's abs as they come in.
