Jordan Farmar injury: Lakers G out another 4 weeks
- Updated: January 2, 2014
Farmar suffered the injury in Tuesday’s 94-79 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks as he left the game after he began feeling tightness in left hamstring. After the game, the 27-year-old was hoping that the injury wasn’t as serious as the previous injury, but it proved to be exactly that.
“Before I came back I didn’t feel anything, but now I am starting to feel tugging each and every other day,” Farmar said after Tuesday’s game where he went 0-for-5 shooting for 0 point with seven assists, and four rebounds in 20 minutes on the floor. “When I make a move I feel a strain. It’s back to feeling something day in and day out, and being nervous to pull through it and have it tear completely again.”
Prior to injury, Farmar was also becoming more frustrated as he was unable to play without any restrictions to his game as his hamstring was preventing him from getting the same lift and explosion off of his left leg.
“It’s something that I am going to have to deal as it is going to bug me regardless,” Farmar said. “Whenever I do play again and come back, I have to have a different mindset. It’s something that I am going to have to work through and trust it.”
When he originally tore his hamstring he was forced to miss four weeks which included 10 games. The new tear in his left hamstring is located much higher on the tendon. Farmar has been a productive player off the bench for the Lakers this season as he is averaging 8.7 points and 4.7 assists in 20.7 minutes in 22 games played.
As for the Lakers’ upcoming game on Friday against the Utah Jazz, Marshall will be the starting point guard in Friday’s home game as they are looking to snap their current six-game losing streak.
