Jordan Farmar, who has played well as a reserve point guard for the Lakers this season sparking a bench unit that has been key to their 9-9 record, will be out for a month with a torn left hamstring, the team announced Monday.
Farmar pulled up grabbing his hamstring in the first quarter Sunday of the Lakers loss to Portland and did not return to the game.
Farmar had been playing well of late, averaging 16.7 points, and 4.7 assists per contest in his last three games.
On the season he is averaging 9.2 points a game in just shy of 19 minutes a night and has been a spark off the bench many nights.
Farmar had been the guy with the ball on the Lakers’ two most successful bench units.
