WASHINGTON, Feb. 9 (Xinhua) -- Steve Nash got an injury on his left leg in the Los Angeles Lakers' 92-88 loss to the Chicago Bulls on Sunday.
The incident took place in the beginning of the third quarter, when Nash had a contact with the Bulls guard Kirk Hinrich. Nash remained in the game for four more minutes, before he went back to the locker room.
Nash had missed nearly three months because of nerve root irritation in his back and hamstrings. He played in three of the Lakers' last four games.
The 39-year-old guard would be re-evaluated on Monday.
