Steve Nash Probable for New Orleans Hornets Game Wednesday

Steve Nash suffered a thigh bruise on the final play in Saturday night's victory against the Memphis Grizzlies. Nash fought through a Marc Gasol pick and was kneed in the thigh for his efforts.

Today Nash practiced with the Phoenix Suns after missing Monday night's debacle against the Dallas Mavericks prompting the following tweets from Paul Coro and Craig Grialou:

  • Paul Coro: Nash was limited to shooting & exercise at practice today. He will be a game-day decision to play Wednesday at N.O.
  • Craig Grialou: Suns @AlvinGentry on @SteveNash for Wednesday at N.O., "I think he'll play. He said he felt a lot better today."
  • Paul Coro: Gentry said Nash (thigh bruise) felt better today & that he thinks he will play Wednesday at N.O.
  • Nash would be a welcomed a readdition to a Suns squad that is 10-25 without Nash in his second tenure with the Suns. In 38 games against the Hornets, Nash has averaged 13 points and 9 assists. Nash has scored in double figures in 6 of the Suns last 8 games while averaging near 10 assists.

    Wednesday the Suns face David Stern's 4-17 Hornets who are missing Eric Gordon and losers of 4 of their last 5. It would be nice to be able to sit Nash against the awful Hornets but Phoenix is in no position to be taking an team for granted, especially the Hornets who bested them opening night, 85-84.
