Torn lateral meniscus:
Reporting from Orlando -- Lakers guard Jordan Farmar sustained a torn lateral meniscus in his left knee in the fourth quarter of Friday's game against the Miami Heat.
The third-year guard will return to Los Angeles on Sunday and be examined by a team doctor on Monday, at which point an update will be issued.
One more update
Lakers guard Jordan Farmar will miss at least three games with a torn lateral meniscus in his left knee. He is headed to Los Angeles where he will undergo further testing on Monday.
If Farmar needs surgery he could be out for months. While he is out, expect Sasha Vujacic to pick up extra playing time. Lamar Odom could also spend more time in the backcourt with the second unit.
According to AM570's Matt Money Smith, Farmar will need arthroscopic surgery and be out 4-6 weeks.
