The Los Angeles Lakers are going to continue to struggle at point guard for at least another week.
Point guard Jordan Farmar is going to miss at least one more week, according to the official twitter of the Lakers. The Lakers say his “ultrasound shows progress but his hamstring is still not healed” and “he’s been ruled out at least another week.”
According to Ramona Shelburne of ESPN Los Angeles, Farmar was hoping to be cleared to practice when he was examined Wednesday.
Farmar had hoped he would be cleared to resume practice after having an ultrasound and being examined Wednesday by Dr. Luga Podesta of the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic. Results showed progress, but that the injury has not healed completely. He will be re-examined on Dec. 24.
“I’m getting close,” Farmar told ESPN Los Angeles Monday night. “I’m not going to risk getting hurt again, because that doesn’t help me or the team if I have to miss more games. But I’m excited. I’m feeling good.”
Farmar is averaging 9.2 points, 4.4 assists and 2.9 rebounds per game.
