Lakers’ Steve Blake has Abdominal Injury
A few weeks ago, the Los Angeles Lakers were trying to solve the problem of having too many point guards on the roster. Now, they could be running low.
Starter Steve Nash has already missed five games and is out at least another week after suffering a non-displaced fracture in the head of his left fibula Oct. 31 against the Portland Trail Blazers.
Now Steve Blake, who has started every game in Nash’s absence, could miss time with a lower abdominal strain. Blake aggravated the injury early during the Lakers 103-90 win over the Sacramento Kings at Staples Center, and played just over two minutes in the third quarter before pain forced him to the bench.
