Two-time NBA MVP Steve Nash may have returned to practice with the Los Angeles Lakers last week, but there appears to be no telling when the veteran point guard will be back on the floor. According to Lakers Nation reporter Serena Winters on Nov. 10, Nash will not travel with the team on the upcoming four-game road trip:

Steve Nash won't be on upcoming road trip.

With Nash seemingly having a never-ending battle with his injuries, retirement may still be a distinct possibility for the future Hall of Famer. Although Nash has been unwilling to given in and simply retire, the writing appears to be on the wall in terms of the end drawing near in terms of his playing career in the NBA.

As a result of Nash's persistent injury problems and Jordan Farmar recently going down with a torn hamstring, Steve Blake will continue to shoulder the load at the point guard position for the Lakers. Kobe Bryant will also help with initiating the offense for Los Angeles while two of the three point guards on the team nurse injuries.

Now that the backcourt is dealing with multiple injuries, the rumor mill will start buzzing about the Lakers searching for a solution at the point guard position. Blake has done a great job while Nash tries to get his body right, but it'd be safe to say the Lakers' front office is exploring all options including trades and free agency.
