Jordan Farmar played 10 minutes as the second-string point guard on Thursday with six points, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers.
He played directly behind Chris Paul, so he's not going to have value while CP3 is healthy. Farmar can be ignored almost everywhere. Oct 31 - 2:31 AM

Jordan Farmar will miss Tuesday's game due to a back injury.

He was hurt in Saturday's game and there has been some talk about him having trouble with nerve pain. We'll monitor him going forward, but for now Farmar should be considered day-to-day.

Jordan Farmar sat out the end of Saturday's game with tightness in his lower back, which he described as nerve pain that travels from his lower back to his hip.

"We’ll see, but I think I’ll be OK," Farmar said. "I work really hard trying to keep everything ready to go for the season, so that’s what we’re shooting for." The prospect of lower-back nerve damage is unsettling and it's hard not to think about Steve Nash or even 23-year-old John Jenkins, who had lower-back/leg pain in early 2014 and wound up having season-ending surgery in February. For now we'll assume that Farmar is day-to-day with the injury, but deep-league owners should keep a close eye on the injury report.

The Clippers signed G Jordan Farmar to a two-year, $4.2 million contract early on Thursday.

He'll be able to back up both guard spots and start when injuries require him to. He's a solid back up and sixth man candidate, especially if Jamal Crawford is involved in a sign-and-trade to play elsewhere this season.
Jul 10 - 12:26 AM

Jordan Farmar and the Clippers have agreed to a two-year, $4.2 million contract, with the second season a player option.

L.A. lost Darren Collison in free agency and they did well to land a quality backup PG with their bi-annual exception. Farmar should take over most of Collison's 26 minutes per game. Although he played well for the Lakers last season, injuries limited Farmar to just 41 games played -- fantasy owners should view him as little more than a low-end source of 3-pointers and assists while Chris Paul is healthy.
Jul 6 - 6:52 PM

The Los Angeles Clippers have had conversations with unrestricted free agent Jordan Farmar, according to sources.

This isn't close to a done deal as Farmar reportedly has interest from three or four other teams, but the Clippers have upped their pursuit of back up point guards now that Darren Collison has signed with the Sacramento Kings. The 27-year-old averaged 10.1 points, 1.7 three-pointers, 2.5 boards, 4.9 assists, and 0.9 steals in 41 games with the Lakers during the 2013-14 season and would give the Clippers a solid insurance policy for Chris Paul.

Jordan Farmar said that he hopes to remain a Laker despite the departure of former head coach Mike D'Antoni.

"I want to be a Laker," Farmar said. "Whether it’s Phil Jackson, Mike D’Antoni or whoever else coaches this team, that won’t deter me from wanting to be a Laker." Farmar, who is set to be a free agent this summer, has spent most of his years as a pro in a Lakers uniform and it is no surprise that the former UCLA Bruin wants to remain in the Los Angeles area. Farmar struggled with injuries this season, only appearing in 41 games with five starts.
May 1 - 5:02 PM

Jordan Farmar posted a balanced line off of the bench on Friday against the Warriors, scoring nine points on 3-of-11 shooting with two 3-pointers, three rebounds, three assists and three steals in 29 minutes.

Starter Kendall Marshall (seven points, one three, three assists, one steal, 19 minutes) has found his way into Mike D'Antoni's doghouse, whereas Farmar is going to get significant minutes and produce as long as he is healthy. Get him into lineups if he's not there already.
Apr 12 - 2:52 AM

Jordan Farmar returned from his groin injury and hit 5-of-10 shots and two 3-pointers for 15 points, five rebounds, eight assists, three steals and two blocks in Tuesday's bad loss to the Rockets.

He played 27 minutes, while Kendall Marshall got just 19 minutes from Mike D'Antoni. This could be a trend going forward, and Marshall's fantasy owners have to be concerned about the return of Farmar. If you need a body for the final few games of the season, grab Farmar now.
Apr 9 - 1:40 AM

Jordan Farmar (groin) and Steve Nash (body) are both expected to play on Tuesday as expected, per coach Mike D'Antoni.

Kendall Marshall is expected to start, but he's going to have to take a minutes hit with these two making a return to action. This may or may not be Nash's last game of the season.
Apr 8 - 1:55 PM

Jordan Farmar (groin) said he will play against the Rockets on Tuesday.

He hit a whopping 3.0 triples per game in his last nine games before his groin injury and was really putting up some huge numbers for the Lakers. His return comes at the right time because the Lakers are now very thin at the ball handler spot with Steve Nash (leg, back) likely out for the season and Kent Bazemore (foot) going down on Sunday. There's risk here, but Farmar makes for a very interesting player to start on Tuesday and beyond.
Apr 6 - 4:45 PM

Jordan Farmar (groin) will not play against the Clippers on Sunday.

He wasn't really expected to play and has a hopeful target for Tuesday night. Farmar has been a per-minute dynamo as far as stats go this year, but his health has kept him down for much of the season. If you want to stash him as a possible plug-and-play for Tuesday, you should be dropping someone with little value.
Apr 6 - 2:12 PM

Jordan Farmar (groin) stated in a recent interview that he hopes to return to the Lakers next season.

"I have plans and high hopes to be here for a long time. I hope it all works out." said Farmar. It's nice to see that despite a horrific and injury plagued season he wishes to remain in LA. Farmar has shown this season that he can be an effective point guard as he's averaged 10.4 points and 4.7 assists through 36 games, with a 30 point, seven assist explosion back in February. He could potentially command a higher salary next year, however, he has shown that he's willing to take less money to be with the purple and gold.
Apr 6 - 12:06 PM

Jordan Farmar (groin) has been cleared to practice and he hopes to return to action next week.

Even if Farmar returns for L.A.'s first game next week, on Tuesday, he'll have a maximum of five games remaining in the season. He should be left on the waiver wire at least until we've seen him on the court. With Steve Nash (nerves) also bouncing in and out of the PG rotation, there's no reason to rely on Kendall Marshall down the stretch.
Apr 1 - 2:44 PM

Jordan Farmar (groin) will be reevaluated over the weekend.

Farmar has only been practicing in a controlled setting, but the point guard will be looked at over the weekend after the Lakers return to Los Angeles in the hopes that he can begin practicing and return late next week. Steve Nash had joked that he need to return before Farmar so that he could keep his job, but it sounds like Kendall Marshall will be the de facto point guard for the Lakers at least until next week.
