Los Angeles Lakers point guard Steve Nash could make his return to action next week, according to coach Mike D'Antoni.

D'Antoni has been without back-court depth for months as Nash, Steve Blake and Kobe Bryant have all suffered from lengthy injury spells.

Bryant is also expected to make his comeback in the coming weeks after he was selected as a starter for the Western Conference's All-Star team.

However, it is unclear as to how much Nash will contribute as he continues to battle with on-going back problems which have hampered him since November.
