Jordan Farmar suffered a "moderate" hamstring strain during first quarter of the Los Angeles Lakers 114-108 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers Sunday and is listed as day-to-day, per Lakers reporter Mike TrudellFarmar said his hamstring has been tight recently and could immediately feel the injury tweak. He did not return to the game after the first quarter.

The Lakers point guard depth is already thin with Steve Nash out until further notice as he deals with nerve root damage in his back. Nash has returned to Los Angeles after working with his personal physical therapist in Vancouver but there have been no updates on his status.

Los Angeles is off until Friday, giving Farmar four days to rehab his hamstring, but it's an injury that can become nagging if not treated properly. He said his goal is to not miss any time after the game and is scheduled to undergo an ultrasound Monday.

Farmar is averaging 9.2 points per game on 39 percent shooting from beyond the arc in 18.9 minutes per game.
