Charles F. Gardner: Bucks rookie Damien Inglis said his broken right foot has not healed and he will be out for six more weeks before being re-evaluated. Inglis said CT scan showed he was still not healthy. "I was (ticked) off, man... I don't know if they messed up my surgery back in June." Twitter @cf_gardner

The 14th-year veteran is the unquestioned leader of a youthful team. However, he might not play this season because of a left-knee injury that has sidelined him since January 2013. "I think it's going to be a challenge," Brown said of Richardson's putting on a uniform. "But I really don't know. I just feel like he's been out of it for a while, and it's going to be a really difficult task." Philadelphia Inquirer

Due to a recurring back injury, Lakers point guard Steve Nash will be out for the season, it was announced today. After consultations with Lakers medical staff, both Nash and the organization believe it is best to focus on rest and rehabilitation at this time. “Being on the court this season has been my top priority and it is disappointing to not be able to do that right now,” said Nash. “I work very hard to stay healthy and unfortunately my recent setback makes performing at full capacity difficult. I will continue to support my team during this period of rest, and will focus on my long-term health.” NBA.com

“As disappointed as we are for ourselves and our fans, we’re even more disappointed for Steve,” said Lakers General Manager Mitch Kupchak. “We know how hard he’s worked the last two years to try to get his body right for the rigors of the NBA, and how badly he wants to play, but unfortunately he simply hasn’t been able to get there up to this point in time. Steve has been a consummate professional, and we greatly appreciate his efforts.” NBA.com
