A doctor has recommended surgery for Los Angeles Lakers guard Jordan Farmar, who hurt his left knee last week against the Miami Heat.Team doctor Steve Lombardo examined Farmar on Monday in Los Angeles and confirmed the guard has a torn lateral meniscus. The team says Farmar has not decided whether to have surgery, and it's unclear how long he will be out.

Farmar was hurt Friday after going for a layup and landing awkwardly in the fourth quarter of the Lakers' 89-87 loss to the Heat.
