Steve Nash with right hamstring strain, will miss rest of Lakers-Kings game

SACRAMENTO — It took less than two minutes for Lakers guard Steve Nash to assess he couldn’t play through the pain of a right hip spasm and right hamstring strain.

With 10:11 left in the first quarter of the Lakers’ game tonight against the Sacramento Kings at Sleep Train Arena, Nash went to the locker room with trainer Gary Vitti. Moments later, the Lakers determined he would sit the rest of the game because of a right hamstring strain.

Nash finished with two points on one-field goal attempt and one assist.
