Why Jordan Farmar remains out

Jordan Farmar was hoping to return this week from his torn left hamstring, however the medical staff is holding him out for at least seven more days, according to ESPNLosAngeles.com. The plan is to meet with the doctor on Dec. 24 and determine if he can return to practice or needs more rest.

"I'm getting close," Farmar said. "I'm not going to risk getting hurt again."
