The Los Angeles Lakers are finally getting their injured point guards back. According to Lakers head coach Mike D'Antoni, they could have Steve Nash, Steve Blake and Jordan Farmar all back in the lineup on Tuesday against the Minnesota Timberwolves, via the team's official Twitter feed:

It looks likely that only Nash and Blake will actually get on the floor against the Timberwolves, as Los Angeles wouldn't want the 39-year-old Nash to immediately play back-to-back games. Farmar indicated that he could make his return in Cleveland on Wednesday, via ESPN's Dave McMenamin:

Nash has played only six games this season due to back problems, last suiting up on Nov. 10. Blake has been out since Dec. 10, due to a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow. Farmar's been suffering from a tear in his left hamstring, which has kept him sidelined for the vast majority of the new year.
