Starting point guard Steve Nash will miss another week of action with a fractured shin. Nash sustained the leg injury in the second game of the year against Portland and has missed the Lakers' last seven games. He will miss games against Houston, Brooklyn, Sacramento, Memphis, and Dallas over the next week. Nash will be reevaluated the following week by Dr. Steve Lombardo.
Steve Blake, who strained an abdominal muscle a week ago, is a game-time decision for tomorrow's matchup with the Houston Rockets. Blake injured his abdomen in the Lakers' game against the Detroit Pistons two weeks ago. D'Antoni will likely go with Darius Morris to start regardless of the health of Blake.
