Jordan Farmar (back) scored 15 points in 23 minutes to go along with one rebound, five assists, one block, and three 3-pointers in Monday's win over Detroit.
"It was great," Chris Paul said of Farmar. "We are all a new team and everybody has been trying to find themselves. Jordan has been trying to pick his spots. Tonight, he just played a lot freer. He was aggressive and fun to watch." Farmar's 23 minutes on Monday marked his season-high, so he's still much more of a deep league fantasy option as Paul's backup. Dec 16 - 11:52 AM

Jordan Farmar (back) will be available for Wednesday against the Pacers.

The Clippers will play Jamal Crawford more at shooting guard with this news, but Farmar shouldn't get too many minutes. Jared Cunningham will also likely be bumped from the rotation.
Dec 10 - 5:40 PM

Jordan Farmar (back) is doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Pacers.

He has missed the past two games due to his back injury, and it looks like he will sit this one out as well. Farmar isn't relevant in most fantasy leagues anyway, as he is averaging just under 15 minutes per game. If he can't go, Jared Cunningham will pick up some extra minutes as the backup point guard.
Dec 10 - 10:31 AM

Jordan Farmar (back) is doubtful to play Wednesday vs. the Pacers.

Farmar is averaging just 4.4 points and 2.1 assists on the season, so his absence will go largely unnoticed in most fantasy leagues. Jared Cunningham will pick up some extra minutes as the Clippers backup point guard, but he too is a negligible asset in most leagues.
Dec 9 - 3:33 PM

Jordan Farmar (back) will not play against the Suns on Monday.

He was doubtful for tonight, but has been making some progress. Jamal Crawford will get some extra chances as a point guard while Jared Cunningham could also step up.
Dec 8 - 8:55 PM

Jordan Farmar (back) is making progress with his injury.

"I think I’ll be OK. I don’t think it’ll be too long. We got on top of it right away. I got right out the game as soon as I felt it." Farmar is listed as day-to-day and isn't expected to miss any kind of significant time. Jared Cunningham will be Chris Paul's backup while Farmar sits.
Dec 8 - 1:53 PM

Jordan Farmar (back spasms) will not play against the Pelicans on Saturday.

He's dealt with back problems before and he could miss some games. Farmar is not going to have much value while Chris Paul is healthy. Jared Cunningham will be the backup point guard.
Dec 6 - 8:49 PM

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.
Oct 21 - 9:11 PM

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.
Oct 19 - 9:28 PM

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.
Jul 3 - 1:27 PM

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.
