06:04 PM ET 12.17 | Steve Nash took a major step forward in his road to recovery from a small fracture in his left leg. The Lakers' guard practiced for the first time since suffering the injury in early-November, and while it wasn't a high-impact practice, he did still get up and down the court full speed. "Hopefully I can play by Christmas," said Nash. "We'll see how it responds this week. Today we didn't do any 5-on-5 or contact."
