Steve Nash plays through bruised right calf against Indiana

INDIANAPOLIS — Steve Nash suffered an injury during the Lakers’ 99-93 victory Friday over the Indiana Pacers. But unlike the fractured left leg that kept him out for 25 games, Nash hardly remains concerned about the bruised right calf he received in the third quarter after getting kneed from Indiana’s George Hill.

“It’s not the end of the world,” Nash said. “I’ll take that over something worse.”

Nash finished with 15 points on 5 of 13 shooting and nine assists, including a fourth-quarter stretch
