Steve Nash went through a full practice with Lakers today

Earlier in the week, we told you Steve Nash was aiming for a return to the Lakers line-up on Saturday.

Baring any major setback, expect him to play Saturday night for the Lakers when they face a hot Golden State squad.

He was a full participant in today's practice. According to Lakers reporter Mike Trudell, he went full contact and even participated in 5-on-5.

This is encouraging to a 12-14 Lakers team that is on a 3-game win streak and just recently got power forward Pau Gasol back from injury.

This will be the first time the Lakers intended starting 5 will take the floor since Nash was injured in the second game of the season.

It will also be the first time Nash is reunited with his former coach, Mike D'antoni.
