ESPN is reporting that Los Angeles Lakers point guard Steve Nash injured his back carrying bags Wednesday, forcing him to miss practice for the third straight day.


Lakers coach Byron Scott said the team was still gathering information about the nature of the injury, but Nash, a two-time league MVP, isn't likely to play in an exhibition game Thursday against the Utah Jazz.

The injury marked yet another setback for Nash, who appeared in just 15 games last season for the Lakers and has played sparingly this preseason, including asking to come out of Sunday's game for unspecified health issues.
This season, 40-year old NBA veteran will earn 9.7 million in the final year of a three-year, $28 million deal.

Nash had a great NBA career, but father time is calling...hope he can make it through the year healthy, but I doubt it.
