The Lakers have been battling injuries all season long. If you’re a point guard for LA, then someone must have it out for you, as they have seen injuries to every guy who has started in that position this season, and that in turn required them to sign Kendall Marshall (who has been pretty good).
Jordan Farmar was a guy who came over to the Lakers for less money, and after injuries to Steve Nash and Steve Blake, the starting spot was all his. He missed some time with a hamstring injury earlier in the season, and after starting in a small stretch, he tore that same hamstring, and has been out ever since.
The Lakers are expecting to get Steve Nash and Kobe Bryant in the next week or two, but things don’t look so good for Farmar. According to Mark Medina of the LA Daily News, he has some recovering to do before he can get back out there:

This isn’t ideal for the Lakers, as Farmar has played pretty well. He is averaging 15.2 points and 8.2 assists per 36 minutes for LA, and he adds some much needed depth to the team. Looks like the Lakers will have to deal with the injury bug for a little bit longer.
