Los Angeles Lakers G Steve Nash was ruled out for the season last week by coach Mike D'Antoni but with the recent injury to Jordan Farmer, the Lakers only have 1 healthy point guard (Kendall Marshall).  Nash had missed the majority of the season because of nerve root irritation in his back and hamstring and he last saw action on February 11th but failed to finished the game.  Nash says he feels "pretty good" but he's unsure if he can sustain a good level of play.  Mike D'Antoni addressed the possibility of Nash's return Wednesday.  

"It's still a possibility," D'Antoni said. "We have to see where he is physically. ... We'll have to see some practices and see how it goes." 

"We'll have to see," D'Antoni said. "Again, we’re just trying to get him totally healthy. You just don't want to send him out there and play him when he's not healthy. The last time we tried, if you remember, he didn't make it through a game. We can't have him start the game and then at halftime not be able to come out. We got to look and see and maybe try it in a couple practices and see if he can get 100 percent healthy, but right now he's not there."
