Backup point guard Jordan Farmar is in the Lakers’ lineup today. He has been suffering from pain in his right foot. A battery of tests Friday revealed nothing, and the team has termed his injury tendonitis. Farmar is on the active roster for Game 1 of the Lakers’ opening-round playoff series against the Utah Jazz, however.
Meanwhile, Jazz center Mehmet Okur will not play because of a strained right hamstring. Jazz coach Jerry Sloan did not have a guess-timate for Okur’s return. Okur did not play in the regular-season finale between the Lakers and the Jazz last Tuesday at Staples Center.
