Phoenix Suns InjuriesUp to the minute news on Phoenix Suns Injuries
LOS ANGELES – The Mavericks front office’s fears for Steve Nash finally came true eight seasons, two MVPs and one franchise later. The point guard’s body has broken down. After a tremendously successful stint with the Phoenix Suns that followed his Dallas departure, Nash’s two seasons with the Los Angeles Lakers have been extremely difficult. Injuries have limited the future Hall of Famer to 63 games, including only 13 this season as he dealt with nerve root irritation in his back and hamstrings.
Drummond, 20, announced himself fit to play in Friday's game against the Phoenix Suns at the morning shoot-around. Pistons interim coach John Loyer wasn't ready to publicly commit to Drummond playing, but Drummond ended up starting Friday night.
