Steve Nash will be out of the Los Angeles Lakers' lineup for at least two weeks with nerve root irritation.

The Lakers announced the latest injury setback for the two-time NBA MVP on Monday.

Nash played just 13 minutes in the Lakers' loss to Minnesota on Sunday night before sitting out with pain in his back and hamstrings. He consulted with a specialist Monday.

Nash is the NBA's oldest player at 39. He has struggled with injuries since shortly after joining the Lakers in summer 2012.

Despite sitting out two games already this season to rest on back-to-back stretches of the schedule, Nash is averaging just 6.7 points and 4.8 assists per game.

Nash is expected to receive an epidural block on Tuesday. He will be evaluated in 10 days.
