Lakers Injury News: Jordan Farmar Out For At Least Two Weeks


[new_royalslider id=”231″]

For some odd reason the Los Angeles Lakers simply cannot stay healthy this season. No player has played in every game this season and the Lakers lead the NBA in games missed by a wide margin.

Already without Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, and Nick Young, the Lakers backcourt took another hit yesterday.

Jordan Farmar appeared to injure his groin during Lakers practice on Monday. After being evaluated on Tuesday, it was confirmed that Farmar will be forced to miss some time according to Lakers Reporter Mike Trudell:

Farmar had already missed significant time due to tearing his hamstring twice at the beginning of the season. However, Farmar had been a huge spark off the bench for the Lakers lately, averaging 12.5 points and 4.4 assists while shooting 54 percent from three-point range since the All-Star break.

With staring point guard Kendall Marshall struggling to find his shot, many expected it to be just a matter of time before Farmar made the jump to the starting lineup.

While Nash had been ruled out for the season by Mike D’Antoni earlier this month, it appears there may be a chance he plays again.

According to ESPN Los Angeles writer Dave McMenamin, D’Antoni would not comment on the possibility of Nash playing:

With both Nash and Farmar out, as well as Young, expect heavy minutes from Marshall and even a possibility of Xavier Henry seeing some time at point. With the Lakers already missing an NBA high 241 games to injury as well as being eliminated from playoff contention, the team should turn their attention to getting everybody healthy for next season.

    Might as well shut him down for the season also. No need to comeback for the last 5-7 games in a rush.

    I like Farmar, and was happy he came back this year, and he played well. However, this was his chance to prove he deserves to be a starting PG in the league in a system we all thought was tailor-made for him (no more “restricted due to the Triangle” excuses) but he was injured seemingly half the time. I still want him back of course :)

    Bring Nash back and make him earn his money. You “want the money”? Play for it, instead of starring in melodramatic documentaries.

    Shut him down this season is over.Let Kent Bazemore run the backup point and see how he does.Kendall Marshall might actually start scoring again now that Jordan is out.

    although he’s been out for 30 games with injuries, I’d still bring him back if I were GM. I really like his game. He’s improved over the years and i especially like his shooting. Hopefully next season, luck will be on our side and the injuries won’t be coming at us like swarming bees.

  • Marty Susman

    This could be it for Jordan. he has been a surprise since coming back but this is his 2nd or 3rd injury and that might mean Kendall Marshall will be kept & he will be on the move.. The last thing the Lakers want is anyone with any kind of injury.

      KM has proven that he is no starter, the Lakers have to bring back Farmar to start or either backup a starter, since KM is an offensive and defensive liability.
