EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- Lakers guard Jordan Farmar had an ultrasound test and was examined by Dr. Luga Podesta on Wednesday morning after injuring his left hamstring in Tuesday night's game versus the Milwaukee Bucks.

Results show that Farmar has a tear in his left hamstring, which is expected to keep him out a minimum of four weeks. Although the hamstring tear is in the same leg, this tear is in a different location than the tear that Farmar suffered on December 1, which kept him out three-and-a-half weeks.
