The Los Angeles Lakers 92-86 loss to the Chicago Bulls Sunday night wasn’t the only bad news for the franchise.

Point guard Steve Nash re-injuried his left leg, this was only Nash’s second game back from being sidelined with the same injury. Nash will be re-evaluated Monday and was held out of the final portion of the game “as a precaution,” according to the team Nash received contact to his left leg from Chicago’s Kirk Hinrich as he turned the ball over with 9:18 remaining in the third quarter.

The contact was near the same spot where he suffered a fracture in the leg last season. He stayed in the game until there was 5:00 remaining in the quarter and went straight to the locker room.

“I just took a knee to the spot where I broke my leg,” Nash said. “Ever since I did that I’ve had a lot of nerve issues there and it just really flared up on me.”

The Lakers are still without star Kobe Bryant due to a leg injury as well.
