NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- Phoenix Suns guard Steve Nash was back in the starting lineup Wednesday night against the New Orleans Hornets.

Nash missed two games with what team officials described as pelvic instability, but returned in time to play against All-Star guard Chris Paul.

Nash has started all 61 games in which he has appeared this season, averaging 15.7 points and 11.4 assists.

The Suns arrived in New Orleans on a three-game losing streak, with Nash having sat out losses against Orlando and Houston.
