Los Angeles Lakers point guard Steve Nash has missed the last seven games, and could potentially be out for the rest of the season according to the team’s head coach Mike D’Antoni.
Mike D'Antoni says he "doubts" Steve Nash plays again this season, but wouldn't rule him out

Nash played just six games early in the season before being ruled out for an extended period of time. He came back and played in four games. Against the Chicago Bulls he collided with Kirk Hinrich, and was hit close to the spot where he suffered a fracture in his leg last season. According to ESPN, Nash has gotten better over the last couple of weeks, but sitting him out for the rest of the year is probably the best option.
In his short comeback, Nash showed that he can still compete and is a terrific playmaker when healthy, but he hasn’t been able to stay on the floor consistently due to injuries, and rushing him back in what is a completely lost season for the Lakers wouldn’t benefit anyone. In the ESPN report, Nash also suggested that he still wants to come back to the Lakers next year, but if he is released he will not look for a new team and call it a career.
