Lakers point guard Steve Nash is listed as doubtful for Friday night’s game against the Clippers after suffering a lower-leg bruise on Wednesday night.

Nash suffered the injury in the second quarter of the team’s 116-106 loss to the Trail Blazers in Portland.

Nash did not practice Thursday and was seen walking with a limp.

“Luckily, it’s not anything major or structural. It’s just a contusion in a bad area,” Nash said. “Maybe I’m too optimistic to say doubtful, but it’s definitely touch and go.”

Steve Blake, who subbed for Nash on Wednesday, would start in Nash’s place if the new Laker can’t play.
