The Hornets could be very shorthanded with Nic Batum also doubtful. That leaves a huge hole on the wings in this one, with Treveon Graham likely to play a lot of minutes and rookie Dwayne Bacon likely to start. Malik Monk should also pick up some extra run off the bench. Lamb is still worth holding in fantasy leagues, as he has maintained standard league value even after Batum returned from his early-season injury. As for Kaminsky, his absence also bodes well for the wings and guards since the Hornets will play in mostly smaller lineups when their starters aren’t on the floor. Johnny O’Bryant is the only backup big man they’ll deploy with Cody Zeller also out. Charlotte’s depth doesn’t have much to offer for fantasy purposes, but those are the names you’ll need to know.
