We knew Steve Nash was a wreck. Injuries made him look like an old man last night, so he's getting an epidural for his <strike>hamstring</strike> back today in the hopes of playing in Game 3. He also has a bad hamstring, and nerve damage in his hip, which probably aren't good things for a basketball player to have.
Nash's girlfriend posted these photos to her Instagram account this afternoon.

(Chris Duhon's wife responded to the photo of Nash with "I hope he feels better!" Duhon will get major minutes the rest of this series. Duhon's wife could get major minutes the rest of this series.)
The Lakers announced today that Nash and Steve Blake are doubtful for Friday's game, and Jodie Meeks is out indefinitely. Los Angeles's starting backcourt will be Darius Morris and Andrew Goudelock. Dwight Howard's supporting cast in Orlando was never this bad.
