Lakers Rumors: Steve Blake, Jordan Farmar to return before All-Star Game?

Lakers rumors have been injury-obsessed over the past couple weeks, with many different timetables being thrown around for the returns of Los Angeles Lakers superstars Kobe Bryant and Steve Nash. However, there are two other important pieces in the Lakers backcourt who may return to the team prior to the NBA All-Star Game.

According to ESPN columnist Nick Borges, Los Angeles Lakers point guards Steve Blake (right elbow injury) and Jordan Farmar (left hamstring injury) could both come back to help an injury-decimated Lakers squad sooner rather than later.

With Kendall Marshall playing very well in significant minutes during their absence, Mike D'Antoni will have to be extremely creative with his rotations, especially with the news that Steve Nash may return as early as Tuesday from nerve root irritation in his back.

10-year NBA veteran Steve Blake was having a renaissance of sorts before going down with an elbow injury on December 10th. In 21 appearances, he is averaging 9.8 points and a career-high 7.7 assists per game. Farmar, out since December 31st after experiencing a tear in his left hamstring, is averaging 8.7 points and 4.7 assists per game in 22 contests.
