MOSCOW - More than 200 years ago, the renowned Russian historian Nikolai Karamzin summed up the situation in his country in two words: "They steal. " They still do, and the news in Russia lately has been dominated by one high-profile corruption scandal after another. Allegations of wrongdoing have reached high into the defense and agriculture ministries and the Russian space program, among other institutions. Nearly nine in 10 Russians say corruption is the nation's biggest problem.

It's not uncommon in warm-weather climates to find hyperventilating news anchors crying out about an upcoming "Storm Watch. " Excuse the jargon seeping into the realm of the Lakers, but this week would be "Phil Watch," followed by the less-anticipated "Nash Watch. " As Phil Jackson debates whether he should return to the Lakers, Steve Nash continues to wait for his leg to heal. Nash missed his fifth game Sunday because of a small fracture in the head of his left fibula. The Lakers said he would not return until at least Friday, which would be when they play Nash's former team, the Phoenix Suns.

The Lakers will try to win without Steve Nash, however long it takes. The team said Nash would be out at least one week because of a small fracture in the head of the fibula of his left leg, though that type of injury could take three or four weeks to heal. He won't play tonight against Detroit, Wednesday against Utah or Friday against Golden State. Nash was injured last Wednesday when he was kneed by a Portland player while turning to run down court. The Lakers initially thought it was a bruised shin but an MRI exam a few days later revealed the fracture.

The Lakers obviously will try to win without Steve Nash, however long it takes for his return. They'll do it with their current roster. Despite the availability of Delonte West and Derek Fisher, the Lakers don't plan to add a point guard while awaiting Nash's return from a small fracture in his left leg that will sideline him anywhere from one to four weeks. The reasoning is simple. The Lakers already have five point guards on their $100-million roster, including rookie Darius Johnson-Odom, a healthy scratch for Sunday's game against Detroit.

Lakers point guard Steve Nash was diagnosed with a "small non-displaced fracture in the head of his fibula," according to a statement released by the team. Nash underwent an MRI exam on his left leg, which was injured in Wednesday night's game against the Portland Trail Blazers. Team doctor Steve Lombardo made the diagnosis, which will keep Nash out for at least a week, when he'll then be re-examined. Nash was acquired over the summer in trade from the Phoenix Suns. The Lakers have started the season 0-3 after losing all eight of their exhibition games.

Steve Nash will be sidelined at least a week after being diagnosed Saturday with a non-displaced fracture in his left leg, the latest setback in a quickly deteriorating season for the Lakers. The veteran point guard will miss at least three more games after already sitting out the Lakers' 105-95 loss to the Clippers on Friday that dropped the Lakers to 0-3 for the first time in 34 years. The Lakers have not gone 0-4 to start a season since 1957, when they were still playing in Minneapolis and opened with seven consecutive losses.

UCLA receiver Darius Bell is expected to out two to four weeks because of a broken rib he suffered during the Bruins' game against California. Bell, a junior, was injured after making an 18-yard reception in the third quarter. He also suffered a shoulder injury on the play from a hit by California's Kameron Jackson . UCLA has good depth at receiver, but Bell's loss does hurt the team's psyche. "He's got a mature personality," UCLA Coach Jim Mora said. "When everything is breaking loose, he keeps it calm.
