Lakers News: Jordan Farmar Has Torn Left Hamstring, Out Four Weeks


Los Angeles Lakers guard Jordan Farmar left last night’s 114-108 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers early in the first quarter with a mild hamstring strain. Farmar played just one minute and was seen rolling out his hamstring prior to the start of the game and was headed for more tests today to show the severity of the injury.

Without the services of Steve Nash and just one true point guard on the roster, Steve Blake, the Lakers looked lost at times with Xavier Henry and Jodie Meeks initiating the offense. However, the results of an ultrasound show a significant injury according to the Lakers Twitter account:

In his first year back with the Lakers after spending two years overseas, Farmar is the catalyst for the NBA’s best bench. Playing roughly 20 minutes a night, Farmar is averaging 9.2 points and 4.4 assists as he’s shown great maturity during his second tour with the Lakers.

Without his services for at least a month, the Lakers will be waiting on guard Steve Nash, who returned from training in Vancouver for the last week or so. The 39-year-old point guard is recovering from hip and back injuries and it’s unknown what he’ll do in tomorrow’s practice.

Head coach Mike D’Antoni has been creative in using the players in his system this season and without Farmar for an extended period of time, Blake, Meeks and Henry will shoulder the load of getting the Lakers into their sets.
