Lakers Injuries: Farmar, Blake Out for Next Two Games

The backcourt for the Los Angeles Lakers continues to be ravaged by injuries with all of the point guards on the roster currently on the shelf with the exception of newcomer Kendall Marshall.

Fortunately, the Lakers might not be thin at point guard much longer with Jordan Farmar and Steve Blake potentially nearing a return. Both veterans were cleared for basketball related activities according to Lakers Nation reporter Serena Winters:

With the two veterans still on the shelf a little while longer, Farmar and Blake have been ruled out for the next two games against the Indiana Pacers and Charlotte Bobcats:

Along with Farmar and Blake getting closer to returning, an update was also given on Steve Nash’s status on Monday. Head coach Mike D’Antoni was hopeful to get Nash back on the floor against the Pacers on Tuesday, but that will not happen with the two-time NBA MVP tweaking his back recently.

So with Farmar, Blake and Nash still out of the lineup, Marshall will continue to shoulder the load as the team’s floor general moving forward.

    Who the f cares anymore???This season is over.Focus on a high lottery pick tbh.

      if that is how you run a team… then you will never really sniff a ring…. no wonder there are only 3-4 teams that are really top teams in NBA history and the rest are managed just like how you want it…. tank for the lottery… I am dismayed by your logic.

        and what will winning more games this season accomplish I calculated they will have to go 26-12 to Just reach .500 think about that .500

        • http://www.haveslot.com/ richard

          winning molds you to win more… losing molds you to be comfortable in losing that’s what is accomplished… every time a team steps on to a court… the goal should be to win games… you can’t just switch it on and you are instantly a winner, it takes experience and playing together, and knowing every bodies roles and be comfortable with it… that’s why no matter the level of talent on the floor, the team still has to play and learn how to win games together,,, and that can never happen if your mindset is to lose a game or games. Losing will only breed a culture of losing… ever wonder why players that came from losing teams finds it hard to accept the challenge of winning? Have you ever thought about it? No, I think you didin’t and you couldn’t. You just want to lose for the lottery, right?

          • http://www.haveslot.com/ richard

            And if I may add more… ever wonder why, champions very rarely gets excited after a win? And very rarely gets down after a loss? You can see it in the eyes of Kobe, Duncan, MJ…etc, and very recently, LBJ and Wade.. But you can always see celebration and excitement in the face of players who haven’t sniff a playoff win, much more a championship series. Why is that?

            I’ll tell you why. It’s called experience in battle. It’s called badge of a battle tested veterans. You wont get those badge by losing or tanking. YOu get those by battling every damn possession, game after game, and playing in whatever way necessary to get a win,, however lost is the cause. Yeah, I know. You don’t understand that either, because you just want to tank for the lottery and walllaahhh,, the team is instant contender! Right?

            Wrong! just plain wrong.

          • Joshua

            will that’s irrelevant because most of the players on this roster won’t be here next year

          • http://www.haveslot.com/ richard

            I beg to disagree…being competitive does not depend on who is here and not here… it depends on the philosophy of the franchise that the player represents… if our team was the Toronto Raptors, I wouldn’t bat an eye lash over this whole thing… but we are the Lakers… we have pride, we have history, we have the culture, we represents what winning is all about…. and again if I may repeat… tanking does NOT fit into all these things.

          • Joshua

            I see your point. and I used the wrong word tanking would be losing on purpose. what I was trying to say was that they should look to rebuild by trading pau for future assets. It would be Irresponsible with management Just tried to win this season with no real end goal.

  • LakersHeatBeef

    Yeap nothing matters anymore,the season is a lost one.Bye bye til next season.

  • Jim213

    Best if injured players return gradually given the next injury may cost them a roster spot next season (FAs) but for he needs to call it quits if he can give 25+ minutes a night given he hasn’t played too much.= R-E-T-I-R-E.
