Steve Blake Expected in 2-3 Weeks
Steve Blake, who has been out with an abdomen injury, should return to the team in two to three weeks, reports the Los Angeles Times. That fits pretty well with the mid-January timeline that had been discussed before when he went out.
Blake is no world-beater, but he can knock down threes to space the floor and makes better decisions thanChris Duhon and Darius Morris. Blake doesn’t have to be Chris Paul, he just has to be solid and hold down the fort until Nash gets his rest. And Nash needs more rest than he’s been getting lately.
