Bruised Steve Nash won't play tonight

Steve Nash won't get the chance tonight to break Kevin Johnson's franchise assist record tonight against the Dallas Mavericks. Nash won't play due to a left thigh bruise near the end of Saturday's win against Memphis.

Nash, averaging 9.9 assists per game, needs just seven to break Johnson's record. He is second on the team in scoring, averaging 14.3 points.

The Suns did not list Nash on their injury report leading into the game.
