Steve Nash Hobbled By 'Tender' Groin Injury

Steve Nash is coming off his worst shooting month as Phoenix Sun. He was just 13-43 (.302) from three in the month of February and recently revealed that he's dealing with a groin injury. Over his last six games, Nash is shooting just 21-33 (.333) from the field and is just 2-16 (.125) from long range. 

Clearly, this is something that's bothering him and impacting his ability to do what he wants to do on the floor.

"It's not great. It's not good. But it's not awful," Nash said today after Suns practice.

"I'm hampered a little bit but I can still play 40 minutes. I don't feel worse than I did yesterday. It's tender. I'm not as effective moving but I still feel like I can contribute."

The injury that has impacted his shooting hasn't stopped him from running the Suns' offense. He is averaging 12.2 assists and only 2.8 turnovers over that same six-game period.

After Sunday's loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder, former point guard and current head coach Scott Brooks praised Nash,

"Steve Nash is such an incredible decision maker. Sometimes I don't know how he does it but he's ageless. He doesn't seem to ever lose anything. He just makes good plays and he made a tough night for us throughout the game."
