Lakers News: D’Antoni Suggests That Farmar May Start Thursday


Since returning from injury, Jordan Farmar has looked quite impressive. In the last four games, he has really stepped it up and more often than not, has found himself on the court at the end of the game.

In tonight’s loss to the Pelicans, Farmar started the second half in place of Kendall Marshall, and that may continue going forward as, according to Lakers reporter Mike Trudell, D’Antoni is considering placing Farmar in the starting lineup:

Marshall has really struggled offensively lately. Though he has continued piling up assists, he has failed to hit double digit points in the last seven games, going scoreless in four, including tonight.

Farmar’s athleticism and speed really gives him an advantage over Marshall on the defensive end, and with his shot falling right now, it could really help to stretch the floor with the starters if he is put in the lineup.

Farmar has also become one of the more vocal leaders of this team and his veteran presence could really help the Lakers to get off to better starts.

Though Marshall may move to the second string, this could really help him as he would be matched up more with backup guards, and his minutes still won’t take a significant hit as he is the only other point guard on the team.

Marshall has had an exceptional season by all accounts and now he has hit a slump just as Farmar has gotten hot. It only makes sense for D’Antoni to consider the move, and we will see if he goes through with it.
