Jeremy Lamb (right hamstring) is listed as doubtful ahead of Wednesday's game.
Lamb's absence is a serious issue for Charlotte, who would be down their second-best player. Perhaps this spurs Nic Batum into doing something, anything, while Malik Monk would get more room to operate off the bench. James Borrego indicated last night that he prefers Monk in a bench role so it might be someone like Devonte Graham or Miles Bridges starting. There's no real winner from the fallout just yet, but Bridges' stat set makes him the most appealing play if he can get it together. Monk will pop with some scoring and triples but is generally more bark than bite for fantasy purposes.
