Jordan Farmar out two weeks with groin strain

The Lakers' back-up point guard will miss the next two weeks with an injury he suffered during practice on Monday

The going gets rough... it seems like a normal day for the Lakers. That's what the saying is, right?

Jordan Farmar, the team's reserve point guard, will sit out for the next two weeks with a mild groin strain that he suffered during practice this week. This will be his third separate injury of the season, as he was previously sidelined for 30 games with two different hamstring tears. It's been a horrible season in terms of Farmar's health, as he's never missed this many games due to injury in his eight-year professional career.

However, when he's been on the court, the point guard has been absolutely fantastic for an otherwise moribund Lakers squad. Farmar is averaging a fantastic 10.4 ppg and 4.7 apg in just 21.9 minutes a night, thriving in Mike D'Antoni's free-flowing offensive system. He's one of the few incumbent Lakers that may get another long-term deal after this season, even despite his injury.

As for who will play in his stead, a combination of MarShon Brooks, Kent Bazemore and Jodie Meeks may run point with the second unit. The injured Steve Nash, who still has not practiced with the team after his latest injury, may be available even after D'Antoni ruled him out for the year.
