Steve Clifford sat Jeremy Lamb in the second half of Saturday’s win against the Rockets in order to give Troy Daniels more minutes.
Daniels scored six points with two threes and two rebounds in 12 minutes off the bench. Clifford has been looking to find more minutes for Daniels, and did so Saturday at the expense of Lamb. Clifford didn’t specify if this was a one-game thing or a trend after the game. But Lamb has been trending down for quite a while now and Daniels could just simply be the better player. Daniels getting more minutes isn’t a game-changer in fantasy but with playoffs starting tomorrow, he could be a streaming option for an owner hunting for threes. As for Lamb, he may not even be on the radar in even the deepest of leagues anymore.
