Report: Lakers awarded disabled player exception for Steve Nash


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/25/2014) The Lakers have been awarded a $4.85-million disabled player exception for Steve Nash, ESPN reports.

Lakers coach Byron Scott finally gets in contact with Steve Nash


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/18/2014) Lakers coach Byron Scott told reporters Tuesday that he's finally gotten in touch with Steve Nash, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Scott expressed some "mild confusion" last week after not being able to get in contact with the 40-year-old point guard. Scott remains hopeful that Nash -- who is done for the season and possibly his basketball career with chronic back issues -- could play a role as a mentor for his young team.

"He did say on his message that he's definitely going to come back [to visit], he wants to see everybody, but he just needed some time, which we all understood," Scott said Tuesday.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/15/2014) Lakers coach Byron Scott told reporters Friday that he's reached out to Steve Nash and would like to see the 40-year-old point guard play a role as a mentor for his young team. Unfortunately for Scott, Nash has not been in contact with him.

"He's probably going through a tough time to adjust as far as life without basketball at this particular point," Scott said. "It didn't upset me one bit. Hopefully I'll reach out to him again and we can talk or I can get a return call."

Nash was ruled out for the 2014-15 season with recurring nerve issues in his back, and as a result, the Lakers have applied for a disabled player exception, which would be worth approximately $4.9 million. However, according to the Los Angeles Daily news, the Lakers aren't expected to use it to sign a player, and could possibly seek to trade Nash's expiring $9.8 million contract.

Scott could opt to start PG Jeremy Lin over Steve Nash


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/15/2014) Byron Scott is considering starting Jeremy Lin at point guard for the Lakers this season rather than aging and injury plagued Steve Nash.

The 40-year-old Nash played in the preseason opener before sitting out the second game and pulling himself out of the third game because of injury. He is in the final season of a three-year contract worth $28 million.

"I have no doubt in my mind that if I went to Steve and said tomorrow, 'You know what, I'm going to start Jeremy and the games you're available, we're going to bring you off bench,' he's such a professional that I don't think it would be a problem whatsoever," Scott told the Los Angeles Times.

Nash was limited to just 15 games last season due to a back injury.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Scott plans to start Steve Nash, Kobe Bryant, Carlos Boozer and Jordan Hill together this season, with Wesley Johnson or Nick Young being considered for the small forward spot.

Nash was limited to only 15 games this season because of ongoing nerve issues. During his exit interviews, he told reporters he is in better shape than he was at this point a year ago. He also plans to be fully healthy in three-to-four weeks, after it took him five months last offseason.

The 40-year-old veteran averaged only 6.8 points, 5.7 assists and 1.9 rebounds per game in 2013-14. He shot 38.3 percent from the floor and 33.3 percent from downtown over his 15 appearances.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Despite this, he isn't sure if he will be able to maintain his health by the start of training camp. He plans to be at training camp, but will need to evaluate his health before the start of next season, after being extremely limited by ongoing nerve issues.

Nash finished the season averaging 6.8 points and 5.7 assists per game in his 15 appearances, but has maintained he is not planning to retire. He is under contract for one more season, and will be paid $9.7 million next year. 


Steve Nash's season likely ends


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

He had to play through pain in his hamstring, however, as he suffered a setback in his season-long battle with nerve issues, and he told the team's sideline reporter he thinks he will be unable to play in the team's finale four games.

Nash has played in just 15 games this season, as a result of an injury that dates back to last season. He finished the season averaging 6.8 points and 5.7 assists per game.
