Lakers News: Misfortune Continues To Start New Year
Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

2013 was the most difficult year for Lakers fans in recent memory, but the misfortunes continued this morning. After not returning in the 94-79 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks, it was revealed that Jordan Farmar has another tear in his left hamstring and will be out at least four weeks.

With the Lakers’ backcourt completely depleted, Kendall Marshall will get his first real opportunity in the NBA to show what he is capable of. In 28 minutes, Marshall had 10 points and seven assists while creating wide-open opportunities for his teammates.

With the Lakers five games out of the eighth seed in the Western Conference, it will be a difficult climb as the team plays 10 of their next 14 games on the road. Although a fully-healthy Lakers team would’ve made the playoffs, the organization has unfortunately been looking at different options.

Yesterday, it was revealed that the Lakers were interested in trading Pau Gasol for Andrew Bynum — a move that would save the franchise approximately $20 million. While it would signal the Lakers focusing on this year’s anticipated draft, David Aldridge of NBA.com believes the trade is unlikely to happen.
