Jordan Farmar out at least another week with hamstring injury
Lakers guard is improving but hamstring tear has not yet completely healed.
Lakers guard Jordan Farmar had an ultrasound test and was examined today by Dr. Luga Podesta of the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic. Results show that there is progress in his torn left hamstring, which Farmar injured in the first half of the Lakers game against Portland on December 1, but that the injury is still not healed. Farmar will be out at least another week, and his next evaluation is scheduled for December 24, at which time another update will be issued.
The Lakers sorely need Farmar back as Steve Blake is out several weeks with an injury and Steve Nash has yet to return from his myriad hip and back problems. They're running out Kobe Bryant and Jodie Meeks in dual-shooting-guard backcourt lineups and the result is an extra strain on Bryant to run the offense just weeks since his return from the Achilles injury.
Farmar, who signed with the Lakers last offseason, is averaging nine points and four assists this season for LA.
