Lakers coach Mike D'Antoni said Steve Nash could play Tuesday. Steve Nash said Steve Nash could play Tuesday. Well, it's finally Tuesday and Steve Nash is going to play against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

The point guard returned to practice with the team last week, and is one of two backcourt players to return to action for Los Angeles.

D'Antoni also confirmed Steve Blake will start. Adding in Jodie Meeks as the third guard, the look against the Wolves on Tuesday is decidedly small.
