08:01 AM ET 11.05 | The Lakers finally won a game over the weekend, taking some heat off their coach, which isn't to say all is well in Los Angeles. Lakers guard Steve Nash could miss up to four weeks because of a small fracture in his left leg, according to a person familiar with the situation. Nash was injured last Wednesday when he was kneed in the left leg by a Portland player while trying to run down court. The Lakers initially thought the injury was a bruised shin, but an MRI exam a few days later revealed a non-displaced fracture in the head of Nash's fibula. The Lakers said Saturday that Nash would miss at least one week and would be evaluated again at that time. Nash could be sidelined for up to four weeks.

QUOTE(#5):

Somehow the Lakers went back to the traditional offense and it showed how good they are even though it was the Pistons. Scrap the Princeton and go back to dumping the ball at the low post.

Yep. I think they will stick with that and forget the PO.

As long as Nash comes back healthy it's all good. It's going to be December with plenty of season to play on.
