Steve Nash hopes to return next week

Los Angeles Lakers guard Steve Nash hopes to be able to return from a hamstring injury next week.

Steve Nash has said that he is hoping to return to action from a hamstring injury next week.

The Los Angeles Lakers guard, who has been hampered by a nerve problem throughout this season, injured the muscle during the team's defeat to the Washington Wizards last week.

The 40-year-old, who will not feature during the team's two-game road trip, confirmed that he should be able to return next week after taking part in a shootaround yesterday.

Nash, who is the oldest active player in the league, has averaged 7.4 points in his 11 appearances for the Lakers this season.
