08:06 AM ET 12.18 | Good news, Lakers fans. Steve Nash is eyeing a return to the Los Angeles Lakers' lineup Saturday against the Golden State Warriors if practice goes well this week, sources told Yahoo! Sports. Nash, 38, had a light practice workload Monday. He has missed 23 games this season after suffering a fractured left fibula on Nov. 1 against the Portland Trail Blazers. The Lakers might have three days' worth of workouts in between Tuesday's game against the Charlotte Bobcats and Saturday against the Warriors. The Lakers originally thought the injury was just a bone bruise, but an MRI showed worse. Nash appeared set to return about a month ago after his fibula healed, but he had a setback due to a nerve irritation.

No one wants to see a healthy LA team in the 1st round.

Ya, but Westbrook, Paul, or even Mike Conley are gonna destroy Nash. Just imagine Nash playing a game 7 man...

Too much pressure on an old PG. what happens if they still keep losing? Will Nash be the scapegoat? Nash will also have a hard time against the quicker guards of GSW.

We know you want the Lakers to fail.

What are you talking about? "this roster" has never played together so how can they accept any reality about it?Keep it real my friend.

Hehehe
Tell like it is MMA.
Truth is, this squad never really played together for more than 1.5 game at the beginning of the season under MB.
That said, lakers for sure has a lot of struggles and D'umbtoni doesn't inspire much confidence, but they have great individual talent and the bench is starting to play way better and developing nicely. So we will see what happens.

Hey MMA...didn't Nash, Howard, Kobe, MWP and Pau Gasol start the first 5 games this season? Your statement of NEVER played is actually not accurate. Just keeping it real. Just sayin'
