Source: Steve Nash suffering from nerve irritation, set to make return before the end of the month

“When’s Nash coming back?”

It’s a question that Laker fans have been asking for – what seems like – forever. It seems such a long time ago that we saw Steve Nash in the purple and gold. 

He injured his left leg in the second game of the season back on October 31. The diagnosis was a “non-displaced fractured left fibula” and he actually healed up pretty well from it, according to Yahoo! Sports.

However, a source tells Marc Spears of Yahoo! that it’s actually a nerve problem that is holding Nash out:

Nash appeared set to return from a non-displaced fractured left fibula about three to four weeks ago. His fibula has healed well, but what caused the setback was a nerve irritation that surfaced in the leg during his rehabilitation, sources said. The nerve caused Nash pain any time he put pressure on it.

The good news from the source is that Nash is expected to make a return before the end of the month.

All I want for Christmas is…a healthy Steve Nash – and I know for a fact that Mike D’Antoni does, too.
