Bruin Report Online has learned that UCLA sophomore point guard Jordan Farmar has suffered a stress fracture to his foot or ankle.

The source of the information indicated that Farmar will be out for four weeks.

If this timetable is correct, that would put Farmar's return in time for the beginning of the Pac-10 season. He would miss tonight's game against Albany, and games against Coppin State, Nevada, Michigan and Wagner.

Darren Collison, the freshman point guard, will probably start and get the majority of Farmar's minutes.

It's another in a cluster of injuries that have beset UCLA's team so far in this early season. Currently, sophomore Josh Shipp is sidelined, recovering from hip surgery, and is expected back approximately the same time as Farmar would be. Also, freshman post player Alfred Aboya has been recovering from knee surgery and is expected back in the next couple of weeks.

Michael Fey has sat out some time this season due to a groin injury and sprained shoulder. Luc Mbah a Moute missed the beginning of practice due to a shoulder injury. Arron Afflalo sat out some practices due to a thigh contusion. Farmar sat out one game because of a groin injury.

Farmar is averaging 14 points and seven assists per game.
