January 19, 2019, 7:47 pmJeremy Lamb - G - Charlotte Hornets
Jeremy Lamb delivered a solid performance in Saturday's win over the Suns, registering 18 points (6-of-9 shooting) with five rebounds, six assists, five treys and no turnovers.
Lamb has taken advantage being the No. 2 scoring option behind Kemba Walker and has grown significantly from the past season. He was able to to impact the game on limited minutes as the Hornets don't want to aggravate that hamstring strain he sustained a few weeks ago. A consistent top-75 value player and shouldn't be in anyone's wire.

Jeremy Lamb scored 14 points and added five rebounds and two steals on Thursday night.
It was another solid ho-hum line for Lamb, who continues to be a quiet compiler this season. It's not the amazing lines we were seeing early in the season, but there's a reliability here with Lamb. You'd miss him if he was gone.

Jeremy Lamb scored 19 points on 8-of-15 shooting with a 3-pointer, seven rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block on Monday.
Lamb was the No. 2 scoring option after Kemba Walker and it showed, as he had more field goal attempts as the rest of the starters outside of Walker combined. Now that he's healthy he shouldn't be floating on any waiver wires as he should cruise to top-75 value.

Jeremy Lamb scored nine points on 3-of-8 shooting with six rebounds, three assists and one block over 26 minutes in Saturday's loss to the Kings.
Lamb had nowhere to go as the Kings had a number of defenders that matched up well with him. Additionally, the Kings had Kemba Walker relatively bottled up for the most part and that made Lamb have to work within tough situations much of the night. He's more answer than problem in Charlotte and he should bounce back any time now, so consider this a nice buy low moment.

Jeremy Lamb showed little to no signs of his hamstring strain in Friday's 96-127 thrashing by the Blazers and was the only other Hornet outside of Kemba Walker to score in double figures with 15 points on 7-of-14 shooting, adding five rebounds, an assist and one steal.
Lamb is not ready to wow us just yet with his far better lines prior to the injury but he's getting there. A member of the Hoop-Ball Six, Lamb is in for a nice comeback and possibly even a strong post-All-Star run.

Jeremy Lamb (right hamstring strain) returned to action on Tuesday after a three-game absence, scoring 16 points on 7-of-18 shooting with one trey and six boards in 29 minutes.
It's not an Earth shattering line but he's back on the floor and as long as we don't hear of any setbacks he's a must-start player.

Jeremy Lamb (right hamstring strain) went through shootaround on Tuesday and says he'll be playing against the Clippers.
Lamb has missed the last three games but sounds ready to return. He said that he felt good after shootaround and didn't leave any room for doubt about his status. Devonte' Graham, who has performed admirably with Lamb out, will move back to the bench. Deep-leaguers using Graham or Malik Monk over the last few games can move on while Lamb belongs back in all lineups.

Jeremy Lamb (right hamstring strain) is questionable for Tuesday's game.
Lamb was scuffling a little bit prior to going down but he's been so good on the whole season that owners shouldn't be stressing about sitting tight and waiting for him to return. He's missed the last three games, with Devonte' Graham starting in his absence.

Jeremy Lamb (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Suns.
Lamb was popping off with mid-round value early and is currently a top-65 value on the season. He was in a slight decline prior to going down on Monday with the hammy issue, but once he's healthy again, Lamb should be able to work his way back as one of the Hornets' more dependable fantasy assets.

Jeremy Lamb is being listed as questionable on Sunday vs. the Suns.
Lamb hadn't been playing well as of late and over the past month he was only the 137th ranked player in standard leagues. Lamb has been dealing with this hamstring since the beginning of the week and these kinds of injuries can be tricky to deal with. However, he's really the Hornets best option outside of Kemba Walker so they obviously need him to return. Stay tuned for updates.

Jeremy Lamb (right hamstring strain) has been downgraded to out against the Nuggets on Saturday.
Lamb will miss his second straight but coach James Borrego said that he hopes to have him back in the next couple of games. This is great news considering he is enjoying his best year as a pro as a full-time starter and is producing top-70 value in standard leagues.

Jeremy Lamb (hamstring) missed Friday's practice and is day-to-day going forward.
Lamb has been a big find for fantasy purposes this season, flashing stretches of top-50 value. Hopefully he is back in the lineup soon, because the Hornets really need their best non-Kemba option to be successful.

Jeremy Lamb is officially out tonight with a right hamstring strain.
Lamb skipped the shootaround this morning and was never really close to playing against the Mavs after injuring himself on Monday. It remains to be seen how long he remains sidelined but the Hornets have not provided an update so far. Devonte’ Graham is likely to draw the start while Malik Monk will have the chance to take a bigger offensive load tonight and deserves consideration for owners desperate for points and triples.

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.
