Steve Nash: Could Play Friday Staff

Update: Nash (hamstring), who will miss Tuesday's game against Dallas, could potentially return to the lineup Friday versus Memphis, ESPN Los Angeles reports. "I think he has a chance for Friday," coach Mike D'Antoni relayed. "So we'll see how it goes the next couple, three days and try to get him ready for Friday, if not 100 percent. That's our plan."

Recommendation: We would be surprised if Nash can attain full health by the end of the week, particularly since his strained hip and hamstring have lingered. Nevertheless, he will be monitored on a daily basis but is unlikely to return until the soreness has dissipated. In his absence, Steve Blake will continue getting the nod at point guard.
