Los Angeles Lakers guard Steve Nash expects to play on Tuesday despite a leg injury that forced him to leave Sunday’s game, ESPN.com reported.
However, Nash, who turned 40 this month and has been sidelined by injuries much of the season, has told friends he plans to retire after this season, the New York Daily News reported.
Nash has another year remaining on his contract that would pay him $9.7 million next season.
On Tuesday, Nash suggested he is not ready to retire.
“Right now I have no intentions to stop playing,” he said, according to Lakers.com.
Nash has played in just nine games this season because of back and leg ailments and is averaging 8.2 points and 5.0 assists.
He returned to action February 4, but had to leave Sunday’s game with a leg injury. Nash does not expect to miss any additional time, though.
