Lakers Welcome Nash-, Amare-less Suns

Amare Stoudemire - Steve NashLast week, when Phoenix put up 140 points on back-to-back nights against L.A.’s other team, it looked like the old “Seven Seconds or Less” Suns were back.

On that second night, in STAPLES, Amare Stoudemire suffered an eye injury that’s set to put him out at least through the regular season, which stung even more as he’d exploded for 44 points on the Clips.

Then, as the Suns beat the Charlotte Bobcats on Tuesday night, Steve Nash sprained his ankle; We learned this morning that Phoenix’s floor general will miss Friday night’s game against the Lakers, which means a bit more of Goran Dragic than the Suns’ staff was hoping for.

We’ll ask you to keep that in mind when you listen to our Gameday interview with Suns.com’s Steven Koek, which we recorded yesterday.
