The Lakers just can't avoid injuries. On Monday, Lakers guard Jordan Farmar suffered a groin injury in practice. Farmar had already missed 30 games with two hamstring injuries. He'll be evaluated on Monday or Tuesday by Dr. Luga Podesta of the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic to determine the severity of his strained, right groin. Through 36 appearances, Farmar is averaging 10.4 points and 4.7 assists while shooting 43.0% from the field and 45.7% from three-point range. Kendall Marshall will likely get more playing time should Farmar sit out for an extended period.

Nick Young finished the season as the Lakers' top scorer, at 17.9 points a game, but he also led the team in a less impressive category -- technical fouls. Through 64 games, Young collected nine technicals, placing him in the top 25 in the NBA. Blake Griffin (Clippers) and DeMarcus Cousins (Sacramento Kings) led the league with 16 apiece, both serving one-game suspensions. Kevin Durant (Oklahoma City Thunder) avoided suspension with 15. No other Laker came close to Young's nine.

The signs indicate that things have begun to click for Lakers reserve guard Jordan Farmar . In recent games Farmar has resisted the temptation to go right back and score on his opposing point guard who attacked him, as he has done for his career, to the dismay of the Lakers' coaching staff. Instead, Farmar has pulled back and set up the offense. He has settled the Lakers' second team down and looked to be a facilitator. There also has been improvement in his defense. "I'm just more at peace, really, with my job and my role right now at this stage of my career," Farmar, 23, said recently.

The Lakers are trying to sign free-agent guard Jordan Farmar, but it's not as easy as putting pen to paper. Farmar hopes to sign with his former team for $1.2 million and openly talks about his NBA return after spending last season overseas, but the Lakers must negotiate a buyout of his contract with a pro team in Turkey. If Farmar returned, the Lakers would have five guards and would no longer pursue another former Lakers player, Sasha Vujacic, who was considered a longshot to make their roster in the first place.

SALT LAKE CITY - Poor Lakers. They lose even when they win. They hammered the similarly woeful Utah Jazz on Monday, 119-104, but damaged their lottery percentages for the draft. If the Lakers had lost, Utah would have caught them (and Boston) in the overall standings, forging a three-way tie for the NBA's fourth-worst record. BOX SCORE: Lakers 119, Jazz 104 Now the Lakers (26-55) will probably finish with the sixth-worst record and a 6.3% chance at the No. 1 pick at the May 20 lottery.

The Lakers have two games left before they wrap a miserable regular season. Despite the team's down year, point guard Jordan Farmar said if it was up to him, he'd be back next season with the franchise. "Of course, I'd be a Laker," he said after the Lakers' 102-90 loss on Sunday night to the Memphis Grizzlies.  "And if I was [General Manager] Mitch [Kupchak], I would sign me. " Farmar left a significant amount of money behind over the summer, when he bought out his contract to leave Turkish team Anadolu Efes, to return to the NBA. "I came back with a lot of energy, a lot of enthusiasm at being back," said Farmar, who missed 41 games with hamstring and groin injuries.

The Lakers (25-54) will finish their regular-season home schedule as they host the Memphis Grizzlies (47-32) on Sunday night at Staples Center. Fifteen of 16 teams have locked in playoff positions. The Grizzlies are in eighth place in the Western Conference, hoping to hold on to the final postseason berth. The Phoenix Suns (47-33) are just half a game behind the Grizzlies. Memphis owns the head-to-head tiebreaker, but the Grizzlies visit the Suns on Monday night. Should the Lakers and Suns both beat the Grizzlies, Phoenix would overtake Memphis in the standings.

After being sidelined since Dec. 1 with a left hamstring tear, Jordan Farmar returned to the Lakers lineup Wednesday, starting against the Miami Heat in their Christmas Day showdown. Not quite an easy transition. Farmar had missed 10 games with the injury, and his rustiness was apparent in his play against the back-to-back NBA champions. He finished with three points on one-for-seven shooting, five rebounds, two assists and four turnovers in the Lakers' 101-95 loss.

Mike D'Antoni thinks of it this way: don't make a bad situation worse. As the losses pile up at a record-setting rate, the Lakers coach often responds with humor while fielding reporters' questions. It's sometimes self-deprecating and usually followed by a laugh, his way of coping with a season to be remembered for two things: many injuries, many losses. "You've got to be careful because if you get in these situations it doesn't help to swing wildly and just take everybody down," D'Antoni said.
