Lakers News: Jordan Farmar out at least two weeks; Steve Nash may return

The Los Angeles Lakers have struggled all season long to stay healthy and get on the right side of .500. Things to another turn for the worst this week with veteran point guard Jordan Farmar going down with a groin injury and set to miss time as a result according to Mike Trudell of on March 18:

"Jordan Farmar is out at least two weeks with a mild groin strain."

Farmar has been a solid contributor off the bench in his return to the Lakers this season. Although injuries have been a problem throughout the year, Farmar has played well once out on the floor.

Before going down with the groin injury in practice this week, Farmar had dealt with hamstring tears on two separate occasions this season. Despite the setbacks, the two-time NBA champion was able to return to form and become a boost off the bench offensively for the Lakers with Kobe Bryant and Nick Young both on the shelf with injuries of their own.

With Farmar out for at least the next two weeks, Kendall Marshall will see a boost of minutes once again. Marshall has struggled as of late with an inability to get going offensively after an impressive start with the Lakers since being brought up from the D-League.

There's an outside chance of Steve Nash returning to help fill the void at point guard, but it remains uncertain if that is a realistic possibility at this point in time. Nash has been trying to battle his way through nerve issues in his back in order to get back on the floor before the season ends. The two-time NBA MVP desperately wants to prove he can still play in order to avoid being released in the off-season.
