The Los Angeles Lakers find themselves in a 2-0 hole heading back to L.A. and Staples Center, but they are seriously banged up. While Jordan Hill was back in the lineup for a couple of minutes, the Lakers piled up several more injuries on top of the existing ones.

According to David Aldridge, Steve Blake and Steve Nash could both be out for game 3:

Blake left game 2 with a hamstring injury and it’s not looking good. In Nash’s case, he was already playing hurt and seemed to have aggravated those injuries during the game. Even if the Lakers’ medical staff can pump him with more pain killers and shots, it’s clear that the 39-year-old’s body is slowly giving up on him.

Jodie Meeks missed game 2 with an ankle injury and is also questionable for game 3.
