Report: Lakers' Nash could return Tuesday
Injured Los Angeles Lakers point guards Steve Nash, Steve Blake and Jordan Farmar all practiced with the team on Thursday as all three are close to returning, the Orange County Register reported.
Nash could be the first to return. Nash, who turns 40 in a week, is targeting Tuesday's game in Minnesota as a possible return date.
Nash has not played since Nov. 10 because of a back problem and ruled out a return for Friday's game against Charlotte.
Blake has not played since Dec. 10 because of an elbow injury, and Farmar has missed 14 games with a hamstring problem. No specific date for their possible return was reported.
