Steve Nash to Miss All-Star Game & Skills Challenge
The Phoenix Suns announced today that 2-time MVP Steve Nash will skip this weekend's All-Star game and Skills Challenge to rest his injured shoulder. NBA commissioner David Stern will pick a replacment for Nash (think Ray Allen, Elton Brand or Zach Randolph).
By skipping the game and skills challenge, Nash will be getting nearly 2 full weeks of rest for the shoulder that's kept him out of the last 3 1/2 games (the Suns are not faring well in his absence).
