NBA roundup: Nash might play Saturday

The SportsXchange

Los Angeles Lakers guard Steve Nash took part in a full practice for the second straight day on Friday, and said there's an outside chance he could play on Saturday against Golden State, ESPNLosAngeles.com reported Friday.

"There's a chance I play (Saturday)," Nash told ESPNLosAngeles.com. "But I think Christmas, for sure."

He later said there is only a "low chance" he will play Saturday and will decide during Saturday's shootaround whether he'll play Saturday night against the Warriors.

His decision will depend on how his body responds to Friday's practice and the opinion of the Lakers' trainers.

Nash, 38, is recovering from a fractured fibula, and has said for several days that he expects to return on Tuesday (Christmas Day) when the Lakers host the New York Knicks.

---Philadelphia guard Jrue Holiday returned to action Friday night after missing four games with a sprained foot.

The 76ers have lost each of the four games that Holiday has missed.

Also, Evan Turner left Wednesday's game in the third quarter with a sprained ankle but he was scheduled to play Friday as well.

Meanwhile, the 76ers assigned rookie forward Arnett Moultrie to their NBA Development League affiliate in Sioux Falls.

---New York Knicks forward Rasheed Wallace missed his second straight game Friday because of a foot injury and there is no timetable for his return.
