Injury problems continue to ravage the roster for the Los Angeles Lakers this season.
As if Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash being ruled out for the season wasn’t bad enough, the Lakers will now be without Jordan Farmar due to a groin injury according to Lakers Nation reporter Serena Winters:
Per Lakers PR, Jordan Farmar suffered a right groin strain today in practice. Will be evaluated either today or tom. to see how long hes out

Farmar has struggled to stay healthy throughout the majority of the season. The two-time NBA champion has dealt with hamstring issues that have kept him sidelined and now the groin injury may keep him send him to the bench once again.
With Farmar likely on the shelf moving forward, Kendall Marshall will get a boost in minutes. Marshall has struggled as of late while sharing minutes with Farmar, but will have a chance to shine once again as the starting point guard for the Lakers.
In 36 games played this season, Farmar tied a career-high with 10.4 points per game while dishing out 4.7 assists per contest and shooting 43 percent from the floor. Farmar is also shooting an impressive 45 percent from beyond the arc which is also a career-high.
If Farmar is ruled out for the rest of the season, it’d be safe to say he’s proved that he can still play at the NBA level and may have earn another contract with the Lakers.
