For a team that will need to be as healthy as possible to achieve what they want to this season, things aren’t off to that great a start on that front:
More bad news for Lakers: MRI revealed Steve Nash has small non-displaced fracture in head of fibula in left leg. He's out at least a week.

For a team that can’t afford to have any injuries to its top players, this is obviously a major blow. Add it to Kobe nursing an extremely sore foot and Dwight’s back still not 100% and the Lakers are in a position, early in the season, where things are not breaking their way (no pun intended).
We’ll have more on this over the next couple of days, for sure.
