He needs the recovery and rehab time,” coach Mike D’Antoni said in a statement. “He hasn’t recovered as quickly as we anticipated. Hopefully, he’ll be able to resume play after the All-Star break.” NBA commissioner David Stern will announce Nash’s replacement. Steve Nash withdrew from Sunday’s All-Star game because of lingering inflammation in his right shoulder. The league’s two-time defending MVP has missed the past 3 games because of the injury. The Phoenix Suns said Monday he won’t play at Seattle on Wednesday night, the club’s lastgame before the All-Star break. The decision means Nash will have had two weeks to rest and treat the shoulder before the Suns play their first post-All Star contest Feb. 20 against the Clippers at Staples Center. last_img read more
