Lakers' Jordan Farmar out at least 4 weeks with new hamstring injury

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

After returning from a hamstring injury that kept him out of 10 games, Lakers guard Jordan Farmar will miss four more weeks with the same injury.

Jordan Farmar returned from a torn hamstring to play in the last four games for the Los Angeles Lakersbut the team announced Wednesday it would be without the point guard for at least  four weeks as he recovers from another hamstring tear at a different location in his left leg.

Farmar missed 10 games this season with his first injury, and after going 0-for-5 from the floor and recording seven assists sat the fourth quarter of a New Year's Eve loss to the Milwaukee Bucks when the hamstring tightened up. An ultrasound confirmed the injury Wednesday morning.

The Lakers again find themselves with just one healthy point guard. Along with Farmar, Steve Nash and Steve Blake are out for at least the next three weeks, leaving Los Angeles with D-League signee Kendall Marshall as the only healthy point guard on the roster. Marshall has played in four games and averaged 5.3 points and 2.5 assists while shooting 57 percent from the floor.
