Steve Nash Returns Tonight


Lakers guard Steve Nash is expected to play Saturday night against the Warriors after missing the team’s last 24 games, a league source told ESPN. Los Angeles said earlier Saturday that Nash would be a game-time decision.

Nash participated in his second consecutive practice Friday without limitations as he continues to recover from a fractured left fibula.

“There’s a chance I play (Saturday),” the 17-year veteran said Friday. “But I think Christmas, for sure.”

The Lakers host the New York Knicks on Christmas Day.
