The Hornets will start Jeremy Lamb in place of the injured Nicolas Batum on Monday night.
This is the configuration Charlotte used with Batum out to begin the year and Lamb is shaping up as a major difference-maker to end the season. He was a top-85 player without Batum previously and needs to be added in all leagues immediately. Lamb should’ve never been dropped considering he’s still around the top-100 on the full season but his lack of name value probably landed him on the wire. Batum’s indefinite absence will also allow Treveon Graham to play a bit more, though that’s not really a fantasy-relevant development.
