The New Jersey Nets have been no stranger to injuries this season and Jordan Farmar can now be added to that list after it was discovered he will miss the next two to three weeks with a groin injury, according to Tim Bontemps of the New York Post.

With only a month left in the season, that could KO Farmar for not only the rest of this season, but he could have very well played his last game with the Nets.

“It was such a nothing-type, minor injury when it first happened that I took it for granted,’’ Farmar said. “I felt I’d be OK in a day, but then it got worse. I sat out a week, and I thought it was OK, because it’s OK when I’m walking around and stuff, but once I get out there and do one thing, it jumps back to square one.”

Farmar had been going through nagging groin problems for the entirety of the 2011-12 campaign, but it appears playing through it might have finally caught up to him.

Averaging 21 minutes off the bench for the Nets this season, Farmar contributed 10 points and three assists per game. He's been a vital component to New Jersey's bench all season and has become increasingly important as more Nets have been hit by the injury bug.

It isn't clear whether Farmar will exercise his player option for the 2012-13 season or if he will choose to jump ship out of Brooklyn and head to a new destination.

I'm sure the Nets would like to retain Farmar for the near future since he's put up great numbers off the bench during his tenure in Newark.

New Jersey has been woeful as of late and will certainly miss Farmar's production the rest of the way.
