EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) - Steve Blake won't play for the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 3 against the San Antonio Spurs on Friday, and fellow guards Steve Nash and Jodie Meeks are doubtful.
The Lakers are running out of healthy guards, and they're increasingly out of ideas on how to stop the Spurs from ending their tumultuous season.
Blake has a strained right hamstring that will keep him out indefinitely, and coach Mike D'Antoni said Thursday that the backup point guard won't play in Game 3.
Nash got two epidural injections in his back and a cortisone injection in his right hip in an attempt to fight off his nagging pain.
D'Antoni says Nash is more likely to play than Meeks, who has a sprained left ankle.
Kobe Bryant is out for the season.
