The Lakers entered Tuesday night’s game against the Milwaukee Bucks with five guys on the injured list, Pau Gasol playing with his upper respiratory infection and Chris Kaman suited up, but was dealing with an ankle issue.

Lakers point guard Jordan Farmar had just come off the injured list four games ago, but left Tuesday night’s game early in the third quarter with tightness in his hamstring and will get an ultrasound tomorrow morning.

“Jordan Farmar will get an MRI (sic) tomorrow and we’ll see where he stands,” said Mike D’Antoni to reporters after the game on TWC SportsNet. “He was kind of out of sorts.”

In 20 minutes, Farmar was 0-for-five from the field with no points and seven assists. D’Antoni’s hand was forced to play Kendall Marshall his most minutes of the season, 28, and he played fairly well with with 10 points and seven assists on four-of-seven shooting.

If Farmar has suffered another tear in his hamstring and is unable to play, the Lakers will be with only one true point guard on the roster again, and this time Xavier Henry will not be there to back Marshall up for, at the very least, another week as he’s out with a bone bruise suffered in the Lakers loss to the 76ers.

When asked if Farmar’s MRI was precautionary, D’Antoni said, “He said he didn’t feel like he could push off and go, so I don’t know what precautions — we’ll just have to take a look and see. We don’t know.”

In the mean time, the Lakers will play the waiting game going into the new year. One of their resolutions will definitely to be to work toward better health in 2014.

    Kendall Marshall is going to start. He played well for the past 2 games. Lets see if he can do that consistently.

      No choice now given the injuries but IMO and this is no diss against the players but hopefully FO doesn’t end up resigning the most injury prone players on the roster.

      Farmar is not one of them (yr after yr thing) but given the player depletion that’s taken place as a result of missing starters which goes for a starting PG it be best to turn the page and ACQUIRE more fresher legs IMO.

        Fresher legs…I don’t know man all the guys that Lakers signed this FA were all younger than 27 years old (aside from Kaman) and most of them are in their 3~4th year in the NBA you really can’t get any more “fresher legs” then that…

        And I don’t know whos injury prone on this roster aside from Kaman (which I doubt he’ll sign with the Lakers cause of MDA) + Steve Nash (hes under contract the year after)

        • Jim213

          Have young players coming off the bench but need starters (fresher legs) down the line. The coach will likely get canned before or after the season. Players like Pau, Blake, & Kaman are injury prone on a yearly basis.Best to avoid signing players who are injury prone which applies to FA too.

    Jordan is a good point guard but Kendall Marshall is much better.

  • Lakers Fan

    If this is long term, who will run point off the bench? Xavier is out, and we all know the type of decisions Meeks make when he has the ball in his hands. I know Kobe looks at this team and knows there is nothing he can do to save them. The Lakers losing to the Bucks has brought the them to rock bottom. Now, Farmar has re-injured himself. I don’t know whether to laugh or just sweep this season under the rug, maybe both?

    MDA is riding our players to the ground..
