However, when asked if the Lakers were eagerly anticipating Bryant's return in December, Farmar rejected the claims.
"We don't think about it much at all. We have a job to do now, the guys who are in the lineup. Everybody's focused on their responsibility and I think we've done pretty good so far," the point guard told reporters.
"We're still learning and still trying to figure each other out. It's going to be a work in progress even when he does come back, trying to figure out everybody's role."
Bryant has celebrated his impending return to the court by agreeing a new two-year deal with the Lakers.
