Jeremy Lamb (back) is probable for Monday's game vs. the Bulls.
Lamb had a maintenance day last week, so this might be the reason why. To be clear, the injury sounds very minor and shouldn't impact his status for opening night. Oct 17 - 9:19 AM

Starting in place of Nicolas Batum (rest), Jeremy Lamb needed nine shots to score nine points in his 15 minutes of action in a 104-86 loss to the Celtics.

Lamb made just 1-of-5 triples, had two rebounds and one assist. As a reserve playing behind a host of versatile talent, the former first-round pick is not on the fantasy radar.

Jeremy Lamb is starting in place of Nicolas Batum (rest) on Saturday vs. the Celtics.

Lamb showed familiar inconsistency after inking a three-year, $21 million extension last season, so he still has plenty to prove to show he's worthy of a consistent spot in an NBA rotation.

There have been "whispers" about a trade that would send Jeremy Lamb to the Bucks, according to Gery Woelfel of the Racine Journal Times.

The report states, "There have been whispers the Bucks and Hornets have had conversations about a deal in which the Bucks would get Lamb and big man Spencer Hawes for Greg Monroe." The Bucks need a rotation-ready guard after losing Khris Middleton (hamstring surgery), and Monroe has long been viewed as a trade chip, but for now this should be viewed as little more than a rumor.

Jeremy Lamb (ankle) will play on Monday vs. the Mavericks.

He was a full participant at Sunday's practice after tweaking his ankle earlier in the week. Kemba Walker (knee) and Brian Roberts (hamstring) won't be active on Monday, so Lamb should get some solid minutes. He could make a case for a larger role in the rotation with a strong preseason, but he's not on the fantasy radar yet.

Jeremy Lamb is looking to show more consistency in 2016-17.

Lamb faded after a strong start to 2015-16 and is focused on sustaining consistency in 2016-17. "When you change your mindset, it doesn’t happen overnight. I’ve been working on it all summer. In training camp, you’ve got to build on that," Lamb said. "If you’re missing shots, you’ve got to keep shooting. If you don’t get a stop, believe you’ll get a stop next time. Help your teammates. Do all the little things that keep you positive." Lamb has potential, but he he isn't worth much more than a late-round flier in standard fantasy leagues until he can show some consistency in his production.

Coach Steve Clifford said Jeremy Lamb hasn't played much due to readiness issues.

Sounds like his OKC days. This is troubling news for Lamb to add minutes with Nicolas Batum (ankle) out. This is slightly encouraging for Jeremy Lin and Frank Kaminsky tonight.
Apr 23 - 3:59 PM

Jeremy Lamb didn't play until garbage time vs. the Heat on Sunday, finishing with four points and three rebounds in four minutes.

Lamb scored 12 points with nine boards and three blocks in 30 minutes during Charlotte's regular-season finale, but he fell out of the rotation with Nic Batum (ankle) back in action. Steve Clifford might tweak his strategy in light of his team's drubbing in Game 1, but Lamb is unlikely to be a significant factor in the playoffs.
Apr 17 - 8:22 PM

Jeremy Lamb had a strong all-around game on Wednesday with 12 points on 6-of-10 shooting, nine rebounds, two assists, one steal and three blocks in a team-high 30 minutes off the bench.

Lamb sat out Monday's game, presumably due to his recent toe injury, but he bounced back with his best performance in recent memory tonight. More minutes were available with Nic Batum (ankle) out and Charlotte leading big the whole game, so we're unlikely to see a repeat performance from Lamb in the playoffs.
Apr 13 - 11:26 PM

Jeremy Lamb (toe) returned from a one-game absence on Sunday, scoring three points in three minutes.

At this juncture in the season, Lamb is 100 percent irrelevant in fantasy hoops.
Apr 10 - 5:48 PM

Jeremy Lamb (toe) is available for Sunday's game vs. the Wizards.

Lamb is returning from a one-game absence, but he hasn't scored in double digits in six straight appearances and most fantasy owners will want to ignore him.
Apr 10 - 11:23 AM

Jeremy Lamb (toe) is a game-time call vs. the Wizards on Sunday.

A decision on his status will be made right after he warms up. Lamb is averaging just 4.0 points during the month of April, so he doesn't belong in most lineups anyways. Expect Troy Daniels to get some extra minutes if Lamb sits this one out.
Apr 10 - 10:39 AM

Jeremy Lamb (toe) questionable against the Wizards on Sunday.

He did not play on Friday, which allowed Troy Daniels to go off for 17 points, Daniels won't be that good again, but he would be in the rotation sans Lamb.
Apr 9 - 4:46 PM

Jeremy Lamb (toe) is out for Friday against the Nets.

He was on the injury report back in February with a toe injury, so this might be an aggravation. There will be a couple extra minutes going to Jeremy Lin as a backup wing.
Apr 8 - 5:48 PM

Jeremy Lamb had 15 points and six rebounds in just 15 minutes off the bench on Tuesday.

He also hit a couple 3-pointers, but the low minutes combined with the fact he hadn't scored in double digits in his previous four games means Lamb should probably still be on waivers in most leagues.
