Jordan Farmar injury: Left hamstring tear sidelines Farmar minimum of 4 weeks

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

More bad news for a Lakers point guard. Jordan Farmar is going to miss at least a month after tearing his left hamstring. Again.

Jordan Farmar is expected to miss a minimum of four weeks after suffering a left hamstring tear during the Los Angeles Lakers loss to the Milwaukee Bucks on New Year's eve, the team officially announced. Farmar had previously missed four weeks with a tear to the same hamstring, though the team clarified his new injury is in a different location than his last.

Farmar initially injured his hamstring on Dec. 2 and the team expected it to be a minimal injury. Instead, it was revealed to be a tear that would force him out at least three-to-four-weeks. Despite optimism from Farmar that he could return from the injury early, he missed the entire four weeks, but was cleared to play in the Lakers' Christmas Day game against the Miami Heat.

His return was short-lived, playing a total of four games before tearing the same hamstring. The Lakers will now likely rely on recently signed Kendall Marshall to handle point guard duties. There is still not timetable on Steve Nash's return, Steve Blake is still recovering from a ligament tear in his elbow and Xavier Henry is out with a knee injury.

The hits to Lakers point guards keep on coming.
