The Los Angeles Lakers just can’t stay healthy this season.

Multiple players have suffered significant injuries, which includes point guard Jordan Farmar who was diagnosed with a torn hamstring Wednesday morning. The injury will force Farmar to miss at least a minimum of four weeks (and possibly more):

Results show that Farmar has a tear in his left hamstring, which is expected to keep him out a minimum of four weeks.

Farmer recently returned from a ten game absence which was caused by a hamstring strain, though the tear is in a different area and has nothing to do with the previously healed strain.

The strain kept Farmar off the court for nearly a month so it’s possible the Lakers point guard could miss more than the minimum four weeks as diagnosed by Dr. Luga Podesta, who found the tear in an ultrasound test.

With Farmar sidelined, it’s expected Kendall Marshall will take over the vast majority of the playing time considering Xavier Henry, Steve Blake and Steve Nash are all out with injury.
