Lakers News: Jordan Farmar to be re-evaluated; may return sooner than expected

The Los Angeles Lakers might have an actual healthy point guard ready to go soon. The Lakers have been without all of their point guards as of late and have had to rely on Kobe Bryant and Xavier Henry to play the position. That might not have to the case for much longer, Jordan Farmar could be back faster than anticipated according to Ramona Shelburne of ESPN Los Angeles on Dec. 16:

“Farmar has missed five games after suffering a torn left hamstring in a December 1 loss to Portland, but has already resumed shooting and basketball-related activities. He will be re-evaluated after the Lakers return from their four-game road trip on Wednesday.”

Farmar has been a pleasant surprise for the Lakers this year and the team needs him now more than ever. After spending two years in Europe, Farmar has played well in his second stint with the Lakers.

Currently, Farmar is averaging 9.2 points, 4.4 assists, and 2.9 rebounds per game. His return to the lineup would shift Bryant back to his natural position at shooting guard position.

Farmar was coming off the bench to start the season, but will be the starter when he returns. This will be a great opportunity for Farmar to prove his worth and could earn himself a lucrative contract depending on his performance. He only signed a one-year deal for the veteran’s minimum, so Farmar has a lot at stake.
