LOS ANGELES -- Steve Nash will be out of the Los Angeles Lakers lineup for at least two weeks with nerve root irritation. Megan Rapinoe Jersey . The Lakers announced the latest injury setback for the two-time NBA MVP on Monday after Nash consulted with a back specialist. Nash played just 13 minutes in the Lakers loss to Minnesota on Sunday night before sitting out with pain in his back and hamstrings. He is expected to receive an epidural block on Tuesday, and will be evaluated in 10 days. "Im a little emotional," Nash said after Sundays game. "Its hard. I really want to play, and I really want to play the way Im accustomed to playing. To be so limited is frustrating, and also to not know (when) kind of a clean-ish bill of health is (possible) is a little daunting, too." Nash is the NBAs oldest player at 39. Although the Canadian star still shows flashes of his heyday as arguably the best point guard of his generation, he has struggled with injuries since shortly after joining the Lakers in summer 2012. He missed 32 of the Lakers 82 games last season, breaking his left leg in the second game before struggling with injuries affecting his back, hip and hamstrings down the stretch. He also missed Los Angeles last two playoff games despite getting several epidural shots for pain management. Nash has struggled with back pain for years, but his broken leg caused new woes. "Its nerves coming from my back," Nash said. "You could call it the back, you could call it the nerves. Im getting the pain in the hamstring. Its basically the same thing from the end of last year." The Lakers have attempted to be careful this fall with Nash, who is under contract for $18 million through next season. Despite sitting out two games already this season to conserve his health on back-to-back stretches of the schedule, Nash is averaging just 6.7 points and 4.8 assists. "Im concerned," Lakers coach Mike DAntoni said after Sundays game. "He was struggling physically tonight. You could see it on his face, and thats why I took him out. We shut him down, more or less, and he was struggling. .. Im hoping (Nash will recover), like everyone else is." Steve Blake, Jordan Farmar and Jodie Meeks all will get more playing time in the absence of both members of Los Angeles decorated backcourt. The Lakers have lost five of seven without Kobe Bryant, who still hasnt returned to practice from surgery on his torn Achilles tendon in April. Blake is off to a strong start to the season while playing both guard positions, averaging 10.0 points and 5.0 assists. Meeks is the Lakers leading scorer this season with 12.8 points per game. "I hate to see him struggling like that with injuries," Blake said of Nash. "Hopefully we can get him back." Los Angeles hosts New Orleans on Tuesday night. Blank Jersey . Betancourt was 2-5 with a 4.08 ERA and 16 saves for the Rockies last season before tearing a ligament in his pitching elbow. He considered undergoing platelet-rich plasma therapy to fix his arm, but announced in August his decision to have Tommy John surgery. Crystal Dunn Jersey . They wanna make t-shirts about it and sell them at our next hockey game..DB: Wow, they want to make t-shirts? That sounds pretty amazing.MS: Yeah, I was also on the Top 10, I was number 1 today, so that was pretty cool. http://www.uswntproshop.com/c-29-julie- ... ersey.aspx .ca look back at each of the Top 10 stories of 2013. Today, we look back at LeBron James and the Miami Heat winning their second straight NBA championship.PHOENIX - Vince Wilfork still remembers the joy of being showered with confetti on the field where the New England Patriots won their last NFL title.Its something that you really cant put into words, he said of that celebration 10 years ago. Everybody looks at you as a world champion.Tom Brady was there, too, savoring his third Super Bowl win in four years.I was so young that I didnt understand what this was all about and how challenging this is, he said, because everything happened so fast at such an early part of my career.Now, in the latter part, theyre the only players from that team that beat the Philadelphia Eagles in Jacksonville, Florida, who are on the squad that will play the Seattle Seahawks in the Super Bowl on Sunday night.Older and, no doubt, much wiser.As elder statesmen on a team with 17 players who werent on the club last season, Wilfork and Brady advise youngsters who have helped keep the Patriots near the top of the league despite considerable turnover — 10 AFC East titles in 11 seasons starting when Wilfork was a rookie.Now hes a six-time Pro Bowler at defensive tackle. As the roster has changed — 18 current players were drafted by the Patriots in the past five years — hes guided newcomers.I have a great group of guys, Wilfork said of his fourth Super Bowl team. I wanted to be a part of getting them there because its not about me. Its about all of them.Hes had that selfless attitude for years, a confirmed believer in coach Bill Belichicks team above all else philosophy.Belichick brings in new defensive players and Wilfork helps nurture them.On offence, thats part of a job description Brady embraces. And hes had plenty of different teammates to integrate into the complex system.Starting with their last championship team, hes completed passes to 33 different wide receivers, 20 running backs, 15 tight ends, three offensive linemen and two linebackers.But there have been two constants: Belichick and Brady.Coach is always pretty consistent with how hes dealt with our team, Brady said. You dont ride the highs and lows of the season. Whether its one winn or one loss, you just try to get better and make improvements, and youve got to play your best at the end. Kelley OHara Jersey. Then theres the simple message, Do Your Job, delivered repeatedly when Belichick speaks and when players see signs posted on their way to meetings and practices.When we put that slogan out there, I think that comes along with eliminating any distractions, eliminating any noise that is being talked about, Wilfork said. Its more important for us now to just fall back on our words and do your job and if we do our job, well be in a good spot.Belichick added veteran receivers the past two seasons and both made significant contributions.Danny Amendola caught 54 passes last season despite being sidelined four games. Brandon LaFell caught 72 this season.Then theres Jonas Gray.The running back started only five games at Notre Dame, was waived by Miami just before the 2013 season and claimed by the Patriots off Baltimores practice squad last January. In his fourth game this season with the Patriots, he ran for 201 yards and four touchdowns.He, too, learned from the veterans.Its the Patriots way, Gray said. They get you in there and they teach you how to work. You learn from the leaders of the team. You learn from guys like Tom and Matthew Slater. You just follow their lead and the next thing you know, youre here at the Super Bowl.A much more significant off-season pickup who tried to knock down Bradys passes in seven years with the New York Jets learned quickly what sets him apart.His desire to be so competitive, star cornerback Darrelle Revis said. Ive never seen it. You could put him in the category of Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, just some of the great athletes in this world and Im talking different sports, too.On Sunday night, Brady will bring that intensity to his sixth Super Bowl, more starts in that game than any other quarterback.Its amazing, he said. Ive been very lucky over the years to play on great teams.Teams that kept winning no matter how much the roster changes.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale NFL Jerseys Jerseys From China Wholesale NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
