Lakers News & Rumors Recap: Jordan Farmar Has Torn Left Hamstring, Out 4 Weeks

The Lakers announced today that back-up point guard Jordan Farmar has a moderately torn hamstring, and is going to miss at least four weeks of playing time in order to let the injury heal.

Farmar injured himself in the Lakers 114-108 loss last night against the Portland Trailblazers. He had only been in the game for a little over a minute. After the game Farmar indicated to Lakers sideline reporter Mike Trudell  that his hamstring had been tight for a few days, and the he knew right away that something was wrong when he tweaked it.

His goal was to not miss any time, and he let reporters know that he believed the injury wasn’t too serious, however, this one month prognosis says differently.

The Lakers are now in an unfortunate position, as one of their key contributors in their second unit is going to be out for an extended period of time. Last night we saw Mike D’Antoni give Xavier Henry and Jodie Meeks some time at the point guard position, and while they showed some decent ability to handle the ball, they failed to create for others, and that’s what makes Farmar such a unique fit for this team.

The best that Lakers fans can hope for is that Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash are close to returning, because their services are going to be needed soon if the Lakers don’t want to fall into a slump. Until then we should expect Steve Blake to get the majority of the minutes at the point guard position as he continues to flourish in Coach D’Antoni’s up-tempo offense.

  • LAL – -buss kupchak…

    trade blake for shannon brown, and trade gasol for adrew bynum.
    + bynum rebound and blocks shots gasol doesnt…
    + shannon brown can is still young and athletic and plays better defense than blake and is more consistent.
    if lakers do this its back to back championships reunited again and lakers will contend this year baby believe that!

    • Lakerfan1

      shannon brown is actually a free agent,,,,however itd be awesome if they got him back

    • Zimmeredge

      pau gasol is one of the best rebounder in the game right now…
      where are bynum’s knees?
      we don’t care about Brown now. Blake is better at the passing the ball. and we need a guy like that.
      cut the crap for one second. Brown and bynum and we are champions again? did you forget how important were Odom and Gasol during the back to back?
      the only player is Ariza. he is the only one who has the ability to play for our team again.

    • Rusty Morris

      We got rid of Bynum for a reason both his knees were bad before 23. He has sat more from injury than he has played. Your an Idiot!

    • クリス ♒ WΔV¥ ♒

      Thank god that you arent a GM

  • Rob

    things are going our way right now, then this.. injury sucks..

  • Gregory Choa

    Woo-hoo, Steve Nash practiced for a whole 15 minutes with the team today (Tues.)
    Baby steps…I’d be shocked if he played on Friday – let’s hope Blake is GTG…
