Steve Nash (espalda) no va a jugar esta temporada #Lakers #NBA

Ben Bolch

Lakers just announced that Steve Nash is out for the season, meaning his Hall of Fame career is likely over.

Jeff Zillgitt

Statement from Lakers, Steve Nash and Mitch Kupchak: http://t.co/BcJel0qpy8

Bill Oram

Lakers announce Steve Nash is out for the season, effectively ending the 40-year-old's career.

David Aldridge

Damn. Lakers announce, officially, that Steve Nash will miss entire season w/recurring back issues. @Kevin Ding first with the information.

Kyle Draper

Hate to hear this MT @Los Angeles Lakers: Steve Nash has been ruled out for the 2014-15 season due to a recurring back injury. http://t.co/lkvQvtlbvr

Eric Pincus

Looking closely at it - I think the most the Lakers would get in a disabled player exception for Nash is $4.85 mil - half his salary

Gary Lee

OFFICIAL: Steve Nash has been ruled out for the 2014-15 NBA season due to a recurring back injury via @Los Angeles Lakers. lakersnation.com/breaking-steve…

Sam Amick

Lakers spokesman John Black confirms @Kevin Ding report that he's out for the season with nerve damage in his back.

Bill Reiter

Can confirm the @Kevin Ding report that Steve Nash will be out for the season with a nerve injury. Brutal loss for the Lakers.

Michael Scotto

Steve Nash will miss the entire season for the Lakers with recurring nerve damage to his back according to Bleacher Report and the LA Times.

Mark Deeks

1) Should've kept Kendall Marshall. 2) Sad face, 3) Would be intrigued to know if the Lakers could get a medical retirement at some point.

Gary Lee

Ronnie Price, Lakers starting point god.

Eric Pincus

Lakers could use a point guard - rule of thumb - teams always need 3 pg - unless team thinks Ellington/Clarkson can handle it (iffy at best)

Eric Pincus

If Nash officially retires because of medical issue - and NBA signs off - his $ comes off Lakers books in April - doesn't really help much

Eric Pincus

Lakers may be able to apply for a disabled player exception for Nash - up to $5.3 mil - TBD

Eric Pincus

Note: If Lakers trade Nash - incoming team cannot get a disabled player exception for his injury

Ryan Ward

The nerve issues proved to be too much for Steve Nash. Tough break. No way to go out for a future Hall of Famer. #Lakers

Ryan Ward

Steve Nash expected to miss ENTIRE season, according to @Kevin Ding #Lakers

David Mayo

Wow, Steve Nash out for the year. Lakers, Lakers, Lakers. Ugh.

Kevin Ding

I've been told @Steve Nash will be ruled out for the entire 2014-15 NBA season with nerve issues: bleacherreport.com/articles/22427…. #Lakers

Eric Pincus

For time being, I get Lin off bench - even if he may be Lakers' 2nd best player - greater concern who closes games latimes.com/sports/lakers/…

Eric Pincus

Magic Johnson suggests Lakers point guard Jeremy Lin should start - I suggest it could happen, eventually but not yet latimes.com/sports/lakers/…

Jimmy Spencer

Let’s see if he can survive #Lakers Twitter now: RT @staance: “Kobe is a bad teammate” says @robertalvis on @Staance staance.com/tag/nba/17008

Eric Pincus

Ultimately, I don't expect Nash to be a major part of Lakers this year - and Young will return to be scorer for 2nd unit - so Lin may start

Eric Pincus

Additionally - if Steve Nash is a starter for Lakers - given his body, starting is healthier for him (shaky ground anyway)

Eric Pincus

Right now the Lakers can get scoring in their top unit with Kobe and cast - they have almost nothing in 2nd unit - which is why Lin there

Gary Lee

Jordan Hill says Jeremy Lin will be “really important” for the Lakers this upcoming season via @Ryan Ward. lakersnation.com/jordan-hill-sa…

Bill Oram

Satellite radio listeners: I'll be joining @SiriusXMNBA at 1:30 p.m. PT to discuss Kobe and the Lakers.

Alex Kennedy

Ohh Byron hates trees, not threes! RT @Eric Pincus For every 3-pointer Lakers convert at home East-West Bank will fund the planting of a tree

Sean Highkin

But...RT @Eric Pincus: For every three-pointer the Lakers convert at home East-West Bank will fund the planting of a tree in LA

Eric Pincus

Sadly for the tree people - Byron doesn't want the Lakers shooting many threes, so yeah

Eric Pincus

For every three-pointer the Lakers convert at home East-West Bank will fund the planting of a tree in LA lakers.com/TreesForThrees

Miguel Angel Paniagua

Jeanie Buss, EVP de los LA Lakers: "Mi hermano (Jim, SVP) me asegura que en 3 años el equipo será aspirante a campeón". Kobe contento...

Gary Lee

Jeanie Buss mentioned that the Lakers “made a very good case” for Melo and doesn’t think it had to do with Kobe. lakersnation.com/jeanie-buss-sa…

Janis Carr

In SportsCenter interview, Jeanie Buss calls free agents who wouldnt want to play with Kobe "losers" and wouldnt want them on the Lakers.

Mark Medina

Roberto Arrillaga

Vujacic jugó Udine (01-04) y en el Efes (11-14) entre ellos Lakers y Nets con dos anillos en LA.Nacido en Maribor pero nacionalidad eslovena

Kurt Helin

If you want to know why Jeanie Buss is more beloved by Lakers fans than Jim Buss, today is the perfect example. She was out defending Kobe.

Roland Lazenby

I can't imagine Lakers fans won't rally behind @Jeanie Buss and, yes, her brother too.

Greg Anthony

It's funny to me how so many say the @Los Angeles Lakers were wrong to resign @Kobe Bryant arguably the greatest player in franchise history!

James Worthy

On #Lakers' Randle: Talked to another team's personnel guy last week. Struggle or no, he sees Randle as a double-double guy, ultimately.
