Los Angeles Lakers point guard Steve Nash's injury struggles last season included back problems and hamstring issues. While he worked hard to get past that, Lakers trainer Gary Vitti confirmed Nash's health is looking up.

"Right now, he's a green light," Vitti told Mike Trudell of, "things look better on July 31, 2014 than they did July 31, 2013."

Nash appeared in 15 games last season averaging 6.8 points per game. He never played less than 40 games in his previous 17 seasons. The 2014-15 season will likely be his last.
