Jeremy Lamb (foot) scored 12 points on 5-of-13 shooting Sunday, to go with two 3-pointers, two rebounds, two steals, one block and two assists across 24 minutes.

Lamb brought some nice energy off the bench, and as an added bonus for 9-cat owners, he didn't commit a single turnover while he was out there. Lamb's foot did not appear to be an issue at all in his return from a one-game stint on the sidelines, so he should be good to go on Tuesday in Chicago.
Apr 1 - 3:59 PM

Jeremy Lamb (left foot soreness) is available on Sunday vs. the 76ers.

He's back after a one-game absence. Dwayne Bacon (ankle sprain) and Treveon Graham (concussion) are both out, so maybe Lamb picks up a few minutes. Since Nicolas Batum returned, Lamb is averaging 11.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 1.5 treys.

Jeremy Lamb (left foot soreness) is a game-time call on Sunday vs. the 76ers.

Dwayne Bacon (ankle sprain) and Treveon Graham (concussion) are both out, so it's possible that we'll get an extended look at Malik Monk if Lamb can't go. Lamb was a late scratch for Saturday's game vs. the Wizards, and the Hornets will probably be watching him closely if he's cleared to play. His upside isn't too high when Nicolas Batum is active, so you might be able to find a better option on your wire on a 13-game slate.
Apr 1 - 11:55 AM

Jeremy Lamb (left foot soreness) has been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. the Wizards.

This late scratch is certainly surprising, as Lamb had been listed as probable on Friday's injury report. With Lamb unavailable, Dwayne Bacon, Malik Monk and Treveon Graham will likely divvy up extra minutes on the wing. This is a situation to avoid from a fantasy perspective.
Mar 31 - 1:34 PM

Jeremy Lamb (left foot soreness) listed as probable for Saturday's game vs. Washington.

This is a new injury for Lamb, but is not considered serious. He has scored in double-figures in six straight games.
Mar 30 - 1:23 PM

Jeremy Lamb played 28 minutes off the bench and had 12 points, six rebounds, six assists and two 3-pointers in Monday's 137-128 overtime win over the Knicks.

He went to the bench with the return of Nicolas Batum, who played 24 minutes, but still came through with a decent fantasy line. The Hornets are very close to being officially eliminated from the playoff hunt, and what they'll do with their lineup once it happens is anyone's guess. Lamb should still have fantasy value either way.
Mar 26 - 9:58 PM

Jeremy Lamb ended up with 14 points across 31 minutes in Saturday's 102-98 victory in Dallas.

Lamb hit 5-of-14 from the field, including 2-of-6 from behind the 3-point line, while adding 2-of-4 from the free-throw line. He also added four assists, three rebounds and a steal with just one turnover as he was making his third consecutive start in place of the injured Nicolas Batum (Achilles' tendinitis).
Mar 25 - 12:23 AM

Jeremy Lamb had 17 points, seven rebounds, two assists and one block in 33 minutes vs. the Nets on Wednesday, going 8-of-13 from the field with one 3-pointer.

It was Lamb's second straight start with Nicolas Batum (Achilles tendinitis) on the sidelines. Batum's return date is unclear and it depends on how he responds to treatment, which bodes well for Lamb -- Charlotte is 7.5 games out of the playoff picture and might as well keep Batum on the sidelines. Lamb has too much upside to leave unowned outside of shallow leagues.
Mar 21 - 10:49 PM

Jeremy Lamb started on Monday vs. the 76ers, scoring 14 points (6-of-12 FGs, 2-of-4 FTs) with eight rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block.

We know Lamb is going to be productive when he gets the minutes, as he averaged 16.1 points, 5.2 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 0.7 steals and 1.7 triples on 44.1% shooting in 14 previous starts. We don't know how long Nicolas Batum (Achilles) will be out, but with the Hornets well out of the playoff race, they have every reason to be cautious. With three more games this week, there's no reason why Lamb should be available on your wire.
Mar 19 - 10:24 PM

Jeremy Lamb will start in place of Nicolas Batum (Achilles) on Monday vs. the 76ers.

It's not clear how much time Batum will miss, but Lamb shouldn't be on the waiver wire for a four-game week. In 14 starts this season, Lamb has averaged 16.1 points, 5.2 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 0.7 steals and 1.7 triples on 44.1% shooting. The Hornets open the week with three out of their four games from Monday-Thursday.

Jeremy Lamb finished with six points across 20 minutes off the bench in Saturday's loss at New York.

Lamb hit 2-of-7 from the field, including 1-of-3 from behind the 3-point line, while adding two rebounds, an assist and a blocked shot. He could continue to see an increase in playing time heading into the new week if Nicolas Batum (Achilles') is forced to miss time after leaving Saturday's game due to soreness in his Achilles' tendon.
Mar 17 - 10:14 PM

Jeremy Lamb (back spams) made 3-of-8 FGs and 3-of-3 FTs for 11 points on Thursday, adding five rebounds, two 3-pointers and one assist in 25 minutes.

Lamb was questionable for this game but played through the ailment, and his solid playing time is all the proof you need that he was fine-- Charlotte led by 18 points after three quarters, so there was no need to push him. He should be ready to go vs. the Knicks on Saturday.
Mar 15 - 10:14 PM

Jeremy Lamb (back) will attempt to play against the Hawks on Thursday.

He was questionable due to back spasms and he hasn't exactly played well lately. Lamb would be a risky DFS play and may not be worth owning in most leagues.
Mar 15 - 6:11 PM

Jeremy Lamb (back spasms) is questionable to face the Hawks on Thursday.

It's a new injury for Lamb, who has cooled off a bit this month. In his previous March games, he averaged 12.2 points, 2.0 boards, 0.8 steals and 1.0 treys. The Hornets have hinted they may tweak their rotation at some point in March, so maybe they take it easy on Lamb.
