LOS ANGELES (AP) - Steve Nash has a small fracture in his left leg and will be out of the Los Angeles Lakers' lineup for at least another week.

The Lakers announced the results of the point guard's MRI exam Saturday.

Nash got hurt in a collision with Portland rookie Damian Lillard on Wednesday night. He missed the Lakers' 105-95 loss to the Clippers on Friday night, dropping the Lakers to 0-3 for the first time in 34 years.

The two-time NBA MVP joined the Lakers last June for his 17th NBA season, agreeing to a three-year, $27 million contract before his trade from Phoenix.

Nash's backup is Steve Blake, who had two assists and eight points in 39 minutes against the Clippers.

The Lakers host Detroit on Sunday night.
