NBA Daily Dose: Nash’s Shoulder Forces Him to Sit
Suns guard Steve Nash, right, will miss tonight’s game and possibly longer thanks to an inflamed shoulder.
Did you just hear a big gulp? No, I don’t mean the 75-million calorie type you get at the 7-11. I’m talking about the kind that forces fantasy owners everywhere to cross themselves upon hearing news as they did today that Steve Nash is in trouble. A shoulder injury will send Captain Canada to the sidelines for at least one game, and perhaps more. Worried? I’d be. We tackle Nash’s shoulder woes in today’s Daily Dose.
The Mavericks’ home winning streak doesn’t appear to be in much jeopardy; the Clips look to down the Knicks for the fifth straight time; Vince Carter had a nice night, but not enough to save the Nets; The Blazers miss Nash, but will have to deal with Amare Stoudemire tonight; and Brendan Haywood has taken complete control of the centre job in Washington.
