Lakers’ Jordan Farmar Tears Hamstring, Out 4 Weeks

EL SEGUNDO (AP) — Los Angeles Lakers guard Jordan Farmar will be out for roughly four weeks after tearing his left hamstring.

The Lakers announced their backup point guard’s injury Monday. The team also announced Pau Gasol has a mildly sprained right ankle.

Farmar left Sunday night’s game against Portland after playing just 56 seconds. He had an ultrasound examination Monday.

Farmar was off to a strong start in his return to the Lakers, where he won two NBA titles before playing in New Jersey and Turkey. The UCLA product is averaging 9.2 points and 4.4 assists per game for Los Angeles.

Farmar is the second injured point guard for the Lakers, who have had Steve Nash in their lineup for just six games this season. Steve Blake has started in Nash’s place.
