The moment the doors opened at the Lakers’ practice facility, Lakers guard Steve Nash remained at the top of the key running the team’s half-court offense. Lakers forward Jordan Hill appeared down on the block, defending center Dwight Howard.
Those instances both signified progress for respective injuries to Nash (right hamstring) and Hill (left hip) as the Lakers prepare for their first-round playoff series beginning Sunday against the San Antonio Spurs.
Nash said he’s “very optimistic” he will play, though nothing will become official until he goes through full-court drills during today’s practice.
