Back in 2013, I charted the recipients of Steve Nash's 10,000 assists over his career. es.pn/UBcjxP http://t.co/19JvS8c8wx

Jimmy Smith

Rough start for Tyreke Evans: he's 1 of 5 from the field. Several mid-range jumpers have failed to go in.

David Mayo

Hollis Thompson's 3 at the buzzer makes it 58-57, #Pistons, at half.

John Reid

Tyreke Evans already with two fouls with 1:55 remaining in first quarter.

Steve Kyler

For those asking about cap implications - Nash salary stays on - might be eligible for a medical exception - could be waived to open roster

Earl K. Sneed

Pretty drive by Doron Lamb. That was the best play of the 1st period for the @Dallas Mavericks, who trail 14-6, after an Evans 3. #DALatNOP

Vincent Goodwill

Caron Butler hits his third shot in a row, and Brandon Jennings does the "call me" signal to the crowd

Vincent Ellis

Butler with another bucket. Triple gives him 14 in first half. #Pistons

Ryan Ward

Kupchak on Nash: “Steve has been a consummate professional, and we greatly appreciate his efforts.” #Lakers

Ryan Ward

Kupchak: “..but unfortunately he simply hasn’t been able to get there up to this point in time.”

Rick Bonnell

Jason Maxiell coming in. Surprised it took this long.

Tony Mejia

Definitely disappointed that Steve Nash is missing the season. Wanted to see him go down dishing and hustling. One of the good guys. HOF'er.

Ryan Wolstat

One of the luckiest sporting dodges in years: Raptors not ending up with Steve Nash

Ryan Ward

“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…”

Steve Popper

Scott survives ebola. Dies of black mold. RT @Scott Cacciola: Barricading myself in my basement studio. MT @nytimes Patient in NYC has Ebola

Steve Kyler

No word yet on a Nash retirement, but hard to imagine he comes back from this.

Ryan Ward

Kupchak on Nash: “As disappointed as we are for ourselves and our fans, we’re even more disappointed for Steve”

Chris Ballard

Nash a model pro. If he decides to eventually become one, he'll be a hell of a coach.

Ryan Wolstat

End of an era. Tough to hear Nash done for the year and, one would expect, forever.

Ryan Ward

Nash: "I will continue to support my team during this period of rest, and will focus on my long-term health.”

Chris Mannix

Lakers make it official, announce @Steve Nash is done for the season. Quote in release from Nash says he will focus on "long term health."

Adam Zagoria

Wow, Steve Nash is going to some great lengths just to avoid playing with Kobe.

Ryan Ward

Nash: “I work very hard to stay healthy and unfortunately my recent setback makes performing at full capacity difficult.”

Dwain Price

It's 8-4 #Pelicans over the #Mavs with 3:50 left in the 1st quarter. This is not a typographical error. #eyeshurting

Ryan Ward

Steve Nash: “Being on the court this season has been my top priority and it is disappointing to not be able to do that right now,”

Mark Medina

Mitch: “We know how hard he’s worked the last two years to try to get his body right for the rigors of the NBA"

Mark Deeks

He's had it for years, slowly getting worse, to a point now it's hard to conceive of it even being able to be worse. Don't mess with a back.

Sean Cunningham

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said he's encouraged by Tim Lincecum today. Could play a bigger role of healthy #SFGiants

Chris Ballard

Tough news about Nash. Was rooting for him.

Mark Medina

Mitch Kupchak in statement: "“As disappointed as we are for ourselves and our fans, we’re even more disappointed for Steve."

Steve Luhm

Lakers gave Steve Nash a three-year, $27M contract. He will end up playing 65 games for them.

Jessica Camerato

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

John Schuhmann

Nash led the No. 1 offense in the league for NINE straight seasons, with two different teams: on.nba.com/dSgClv

Dwain Price

It's 6-4 Pelicans with under 5 minutes left in the first quarter. It really is.

Bob Cooney

Steve Nash got absolutely everything out of his body & physical/mental gifts. A great player, and a better person. All aces.

Benjamin Hochman

Bob Cooney

Sixers want to stop inside first defensively. That leads to open threes. Detroit is 8-for-14 so far.

Steve Kyler

Tough blow for Steve Nash... Will miss entire season to nerve issues in his back.

Mark Medina

"...I will continue to support my team during this period of rest, and will focus on my long-term health.”

Kyle Draper

Sam Amick

Seems unfathomable that Steve Nash would come back from this, but I'm told he has not made a decision on retirement.

Vincent Goodwill

Officials never call the clear-out offensive foul on left handed players for some reason..

Dwain Price

Five minutes into this game and it already has that AAU feel to it. #silver

Scott Howard-Cooper

That Nash story was from10 days ago. He spoke openly about the possibility of not making it back

Monte Poole

AD is a beast. But I doubt he can pass Steph at this stage. No playoffs resume.

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

Howard Chen

Got a taste today of @DjVerseatile's #SomethingWicked mix, y'all. Be prepared to get CRAAAAAZY amped this weekend. #EDM

Mike Bresnahan

Nash hasn't determined whether he will retire, according to a person familiar with the situation. He'll figure that out at some point soon.

Jay King

I don't know whether I believed it. Still don't. But anyway, he was a near-perfect offensive point guard.

Vincent Ellis

#settledown MT @DetroitKoolAid After being perplexed at kcp on draft night, the thought of he and Spencer in a backcourt makes me drool

Kemba Walker is sitting out, but he can't be too hurt. He's dribbling around in second-half warmups.

Jimmy Smith

No regular starters on floor for #Mavs.

Jay King

D'Antoni's brother once told me Nash could sprint across a room, jump into the air, and land balanced on an exercise ball. Crazy.

Sam Amick

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

Erik Gundersen

It's never pretty when it ends for the greats. Nash was so much fun. I'll never forget how much he wanted it.

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.

Vincent Goodwill

When the season starts all those Philly DNP's will read "DNP-tanking" http://t.co/WQYGAci7MJ

Sean Highkin

Injuries suck, man.

Earl K. Sneed

Pelicans have their starting five on the court, by the way. Holiday, Gordon, Evans, Davis & Asik. #DALatNOP

Dwain Price

The #Mavs started Crowder, Smith, Aminu, Jefferson and Mekel.

Jimmy Smith

Bare with us tonight on in-game updates. Communications/internet very slow.

John Reid

Eric Gordon scores the Pelicans' opening points.

Earl K. Sneed

Mekel opens the game with a jumper. He's playing with a lot of confidence this year. #DALatNOP

Jazz coach Quin Snyder recently talked about his respect for Steve Nash, who will reportedly miss the season. Snyder: http://t.co/YlakRfJvFg

John Reid

Eric Gordon is starting tonight, although Monty Williams said he wants to see him work with second unit.

Eric Pincus

Nash's salary - if medically retired - would come off the books a year from last game played - which was 4/8/14

Steve Popper

If this is the end of his playing career, there is always this: youtube.com/watch?v=gp4Np_…

Gut punch. RT @Kevin Ding: I've been told @Steve Nash will be ruled out for the entire 2014-15 season w/ nerve issues: bit.ly/1uMDeb9.

Jimmy Smith

#Pelicans starters: Davis, Evans, Asik, Gordon, Holiday.

Mark Deeks

Likely? Probably not.

Keith Pompey

#Sixers down 40-32 with 9:20 left in second quarter

Mark Deeks

If they could - which hinges on how they can establish when this happened - there's a possibility of a dredge of cap room.

Jay King

I mean, the dude would rotate his hips one way, drive by his man the other, lick his fingers, fix his hair, then slide a perfect bounce pass

Vincent Ellis

Pretty uninspiring stuff from Drummond so far. One rebound and Noel getting better of him. #Pistons

Chris Mannix

Nash's injury opens up most of the point guard minutes for newcomer Jeremy Lin. Ronnie Price seems likely to assume the backup role.

Bob Cooney

Noel playing a lot of higher post on offense tonight. Brown likes his passing skills. That gets ball in his hands more

Eric Pincus

Obviously if Nash retires - he opens a roster spot - because he's retired - but until that moment (or buyout/trade) - on roster.

Chris Fedor

This such a powerful story on Kevin Kolb and concussions that chased him out of the league mmqb.si.com/2014/10/23/kev…

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.

Doug Smith

There is no better or more important Canadian athlete in the last quarter century than @Steve Nash. None.

Steve Popper

So Steve Nash ruled out for season with nerve issues. Waiting for someone to say it's because he didn't want to play with Kobe. Great career

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)

Vincent Goodwill

Spencer Dinwiddie not shy, but not hunting for shots. He'll only play 15-20 mins, so he'll make the most of his opportunities. Every one

Eric Pincus

If Nash is traded - and then retires - then no, his $ does not come off incoming team's books in April because existing issue

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

Excellent combination. RT @TSully35: YES! Listening to Hahn and Humpty and watching the Islanders game @Alan Hahn @HDumpty39

Eric Pincus

The Jeremy Lin/Omer Asik contracts were not poison pill - they were quirks of Early Bird/Gilbert Arenas provision @BBallInsiders

Eric Pincus

Poison pill relates to a player signing an extension - which hasn't yet kicked in - if traded salary matching complicated @BBallInsiders

Mostly themselves ("We're STILL bad?!") RT @Aaron Falk: Trey Burke says, "I think we’ll shock a lot of people." sltrib.com/sports/1739267…

Eric Pincus

often mis-used term - Nikola Vucevic now has poison-pill contract-trading him is a salary cap mess (they're not trading him) @BBallInsiders

Rick Bonnell

Luis Scola has 11 points in 10 minutes on 5-of-7 shooting for Pacers. Williams and Zeller have both struggled to guard him.

Dan Woike

Going to run errands -- text me if Bill Simmons and Doc yell at each other.

Aaron Falk

Can the Jazz surprise people like the Suns did last year? Trey Burke says, "I think we’ll shock a lot of people." sltrib.com/sports/1739267…

Rick Bonnell

Luis Scola keeps driving on Cody Zeller. He's trying to guard without fouling.

Derek Bodner

Cheers to tonight be the last untelevised #sixers game of the season. (Honestly, I mean it).

Dwain Price

The #Mavs won't play their top players tonight against the #Pelicans. Their starting lineup will be out in full force Fri. in Orlando.

Josh Newman

Andrew Nicholas was able to breathe a sigh of relief this morning when the MRI on his left knee came back clean. on.app.com/1tPfGYB

Brett Pollakoff

Doesn’t make it right. RT @Gibberman10: @Brett Pollakoff he always holds a baseball bat.

Brett Pollakoff

Why is Jalen Rose holding a baseball bat?

Mike Finger

C'mon, man. Heed Darrell and act like you've been here before. RT @kbohls: Longhorns has the most depth, versatility they may have ever had.

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/…

Hoops notes on Barnes' big lineup, Turner on Durant, and why Demarcus Holland called John Harris "cocky": blog.mysanantonio.com/longhorns/2014…

Eric Pincus

My argument here is that 1st unit can survive w/Kobe as primary scorer - but no Young, 2nd unit dead w/o Lin latimes.com/sports/lakers/…

Bob Cooney

Sixers and Pistons have exact same warmups, except for team name

Eric Pincus

There are some SERIOUSLY passionate Lin fans who are very angry that Jeremy Lin is not starting - didn't quite grasp the scope til now

Jorge Sierra

Don't know if Duncan-Parker-Manu is the best Big Three ever. Probably not. But their talent/ego ratio will never be matched, I'm sure.

Keith Pompey

#Pistons starters: Cartier Martin, Josh Smith, Andre Drummond, Kyle Singler and DJ Augustin.

Derek Bodner

Christapher Johnson is starting.

Not that you should, under any circumstance, have any expectations for Marquis Teague if he comes here. But, he's better than Casper Ware.
