NFL on Yahoo Sports:

Lakers' Nash feels he'll miss at least two more weeks

The SportsXchange

Los Angeles Lakers point guard Steve Nash told USA Today Sports that he's unlikely to play for at least another two weeks, as he continues his rehabilitation from a broken leg.

Nash has been out since fracturing his left fibula in a collision with Portland Trail Blazers rookie Damian Lillard on Oct. 31.

"I think it will be at least another two weeks," Nash told the paper Monday. "I can move. I can shoot. I just can't run full speed. And I'm not even in shape. I'll probably need at least a week of practice once I start running.

"I hope I can make a difference. I think the team is close to doing well on their own. It's hard. It's like a second training camp. The guys haven't had a lot of time to practice under (coach Mike D'Antoni).
