Jeremy Lamb scored 21 points in Tuesday's 103-76 blowout loss to the Hawks.
Kemba Walker (knee) was out and the Hornets limited the minutes of Nicolas Batum and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist among others, so Lamb logged 33 minutes on the night and finished 7-of-18 from the field with five rebounds, one assist, two steals and one triple. Lamb averaged just 18.2 minutes on the season prior to Tuesday, and while he was productive when called upon, the wing rotation was too crowded for him to make a significant impact. With Batum, MKG and Marco Belinelli all under contract next season, Lamb has his work cut out for him if he wants to earn a larger role next season. Apr 11 - 9:53 PM

Jeremy Lamb scored 17 points on 6-of-8 shooting vs. the Celtics on Saturday.

Lamb is an interesting spot for the final two games of the season, as Marco Belinelli (finger) is banged up and the Hornets have been eliminated from the playoffs. The Hornets may be tempted to reduce the workloads of their studs or even shut them down, so Lamb could have some sneaky value in the final week of the season. He added five rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one triple in 25 minutes.
Apr 8 - 9:20 PM

Jeremy Lamb played 26 minutes off the bench on Tuesday and hit 6-of-11 shots and a 3-pointer on his way to 16 points, three rebounds, two assists and a steal.

He helped the Hornets make this a game, but they didn't get it done in the end. Lamb hadn't scored more than four points in his previous three games and simply got hot tonight. As long as his starting teammates are healthy, he has no fantasy value.
Mar 28 - 9:58 PM

Jeremy Lamb scored two points with two rebounds in nine minutes against the Suns on Sunday.

His playing time has fallen off in a big way and some of it is because he's not playing well. Lamb won't have much value unless Marco Belinelli, Nic Batum or Michael Kidd-Gilchrist miss time.
Mar 26 - 4:14 PM

Jeremy Lamb moved back to the bench on Saturday with four points, five rebounds, three assists and one block in 14 minutes against the Wizards on Saturday.

With Nic Batum and Frank Kaminsky now back together, Lamb's playing time should continue to be in the teens. The Hornets won't be going with as many small lineups and obviously Batum deserves his 35 minutes per game, so he just doesn't have a clear avenue for playing time. Go ahead and drop Lamb.
Mar 18 - 10:11 PM

Jeremy Lamb started again on Wednesday in place of Nicolas Batum (migraines), scoring eight points on 3-of-9 shooting with seven rebounds and two assists.

Lamb played 29 minutes tonight, after scoring a career-high 26 points in 31 minutes on Monday. Batum's CT scan came back negative and he's day-to-day, however, so there are no guarantees that Lamb will get another start.
Mar 15 - 10:13 PM

Jeremy Lamb started in place of Nicolas Batum (migraine) on Monday vs. the Bulls and made the most of his opportunity, scoring a career-high 26 points.

His success shouldn't be a surprise, as he posted averages of 14.0 points, 10.0 boards, 3.0 dimes and 0.7 steals in three previous starts this season. He shot 10-of-17 from the field with four rebounds, two assists, two steals and two triples, but he will lose most of his value if Batum is able to play on Wednesday vs. the Pacers. The Hornets are 3.5 games behind the No. 8 seed in the East, so we should see more of Lamb if they fall out of the playoff hunt. He's worth a long look if Batum misses another game.
Mar 13 - 10:38 PM

Jeremy Lamb will be in the starting lineup for Monday's matchup with the Bulls.

Nicolas Batum (migraine) is unavailable for this one, so Lamb should be able to flirt with minutes in the 30s. In Lamb's three previous starts this season, he compiled averages of 14.0 points, 10.0 boards, 3.0 dimes and 0.7 steals per contest, so he could be someone to look at as a potential streamer or DFS punt play tonight.
Mar 13 - 5:28 PM

Jeremy Lamb scored 10 points with five rebounds, three assists, two blocks and two 3-pointers against the Magic on Friday.

Many Hornets had to play up a position to help offset their lack of depth of front, so that led to more minutes for Lamb. If guys like Johnny O'Bryant and Frank Kaminsky still need to miss time, coach Steve Clifford should continue to use Michael Kidd-Gilchrist more at power forward. Lamb may be a sneaky, risky play on Saturday, but his long-term value isn't the greatest.
Mar 10 - 9:45 PM

Jeremy Lamb scored 14 points vs. the Pacers on Monday, shooting 6-of-9 from the field.

Lamb has been a nice per-minute guy this season, but his minutes have been all over the place. He added five rebounds, two assists and two triples in 25 minutes, and it's possible that he gets more burn later in the season -- the Hornets are 3.0 games behind the Bulls for the No. 8 seed.
Mar 6 - 11:38 PM

Jeremy Lamb stepped up in 37 bench minutes on Sunday, scoring 19 points with six rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in a road loss vs. the Clippers.

Lamb made 5-of-10 field goals and 8-of-8 free throws for his second-highest scoring game of the season, and his contributions were critical in taking pressure off Kemba Walker and Nic Batum. The fifth-year swingman has found a solid niche off Charlotte's bench the past two seasons, but he doesn't typically do enough for standard-league ownership.
Feb 27 - 12:49 AM

Jeremy Lamb got loose for 16 points, seven rebounds, a steal, a block and a 3-pointer on 6-of-11 shooting in just 19 minutes on Monday.

Lamb's been back from his foot injury for four games and has scored three, seven, 12 and 16 points in each of his them, showing positive progression along the way. But with most of his teammates healthy and limited minutes in each one, he's far from a reliable fantasy option. Just keep an eye on him going forward. He scored 12 on Saturday in just 15 minutes and had 16 points in 19 minutes, but unless his playing time gets a spike soon, his scoring will tail off.
Feb 7 - 10:02 PM

Jeremy Lamb returned from a foot injury and played six minutes on Tuesday, hitting a 3-pointer for his only score of the game.

He hadn't played since Jan. 10 and doesn't have a big enough role in the rotation to make a fantasy difference in any leagues right now.
Feb 1 - 12:26 AM

Jeremy Lamb (foot) is probable to play Tuesday vs. Portland.

Lamb was available to play on Friday but wound up picking up a DNP-CD, so even if he does get on the court for Tuesday's game it'll likely be in a limited capacity. He belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues.
Jan 30 - 5:17 PM

Jeremy Lamb (foot) wasn't in the rotation on Friday due to a lack of practice.

The Hornets didn't practice today, so you can assume Lamb won't be out there for this one. Marco Belinelli will back up the wings, but doesn't have much value right now with both starters playing well.
