Report: Steve Nash ramping up work outs according to Mike Trudell

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sport

Steve Nash continues to rehabilitate the non-displaced fracture of his fibula but progress has been made, as reports Mike Trudell.

Steve Nash has played less than two total regular season games for the Los Angeles Lakers, and with Steve Blake also joining him in the infirmary, the Lakers have felt every draining moment without him. With nothing but the word "indefinitely" to hang on to as it stands, earlier today Mike Trudell reported that Steve Nash is starting to increase the intensity of his workouts.

The veteran has been ramping up work outs with Lakers strength and conditioning coach Tim DiFrancesco of late, much to DiFrancesco’s liking.

"I’m really excited with the progress that he’s feeling and I’m seeing at this point, in certain lower body based exercises that even a week ago were not possible," said DiFrancesco. "I finally feel like we’re seeing some beams of light at the end of this tunnel, and that’s exciting. Nobody has been more frustrated or wanted to be back on that court than him." - Mike Trudell, Lakers.com

It's certainly a positive that they are citing progress, but nonetheless no specific window for the return of Gatsby has been set. With a four-game road trip coming up after this quick check-in against the Utah Jazz in Staples it would certainly help to have Steve Nash on the floor, but for now we'll just keep on waiting with bated breath. Certainly have had to throw that patience word around a bit this season.
