According to, an ultrasound today showed that PG Jordan Farmar‘s torn hamstring has completely healed. Farmar is now cleared to return to the Lakers lineup.

With Steve Nash and Steve Blake both still injured, adding Farmar to the injury-depleted backcourt will be a welcomed sight.

Farmar will replace quasi-point guard Xavier Henry in the starting lineup tomorrow vs. the Miami HEAT, and is looking to bring a sense of normalcy back to the Lakers’ lineup.

Farmar is averaging 9.2 ppg on 43.8% shooting, 4.4 apg, and 2.9 rpg in 18 games this season.
