On Wednesday, Jeremy Lamb produced 10 points (4-for-10 shooting), seven rebounds, five assists, two threes (2-for-6) and one steal in a winning effort over the Bulls.
Lamb formed a potent back court with Malcolm Brogdon (14 points, four assists, three treys and three rebounds) which completely overpowered the Bulls. With Oladipo set to miss the beginning of the season both Lamb and Brogdon will start and produce starter-level fantasy numbers.

Coach Nate McMillan announced that the starting lineup would be Malcolm Brogdon, Jeremy Lamb, TJ Warren, Domantas Sabonis and Myles Turner.
This was the assumed starting lineup for the Pacers so no surprises here. With Victor Oladipo still without a timetable for return, Brogdon and Lamb should be considered the starting backcourt for the foreseeable future. Brogdon should be a very productive mid-round pick with what should be an increased role on this Pacers team compared to the Milwaukee team he was previously on.

The Pacers have announced the signing of Jeremy Lamb.
Lamb is heading to Indiana on a three-year, $31.5 million deal. He's coming off a career season in Charlotte and looks like the starting shooting guard while Victor Oladipo is on the shelf. Lamb also figures to help make up for the departed Bojan Bogdanovic's production on the wings, and as long as he's getting more than 25 mpg he's going to be an easy late-middle round guy with some upside for more.

The Pacers have agreed in principle to sign Hornets free agent Jeremy Lamb to a three-year deal worth $31.5 million.
Lamb is coming off a career-year with Charlotte and it makes sense that he'd find a legit suitor in the FA market. Expect him to be a plug-and-play guy who will do whatever the Pacers need him to do – mainly starting at SG while Victor Oladipo recovers from his injury, for starters.

Jeremy Lamb is emerging as a serious free-agent target for the Indiana Pacers according to Marc Stein of the New York Times.
Lamb's free agent possibilities has been one of the few to remain a mystery in the lead up to the official start of free agency. If he is to sign with the Pacers he is could find himself in a similar role he played in Charlotte as a starting SG while Oladipo is out, and as a 6th man when he would return.

Sam Amick of The Athletic is reporting that the Rockets are considering Danny Green, Al-Farouq Aminu, Jeremy Lamb, Brook Lopez, DeAndre Jordan and Kevon Looney as possible targets in free agency.
Houston is focused on completing a sign-and-trade for Jimmy Butler but those players, either as cheap depth around the new Big Three or as fallback options, are all good fits. There's a ton of balls in the air at this point but it's clear that the Rockets are prepared to shake things up and are planning to cover their bases at every position.

Jeremy Lamb finished with 22 points, eight rebounds, two assists, four triples and one turnover on 6-of-12 shooting in 31 minutes in Wednesday's season finale vs. the Magic.
This was by-far Lamb's best season and Hoop-Ball called it, placing Lamb inside of the HoopBall Six this preseason. He finished with career-high's in minutes, shot attempts, 3-point attempts, rebounds, steals and points. Lamb really became the Hornets' second option behind Kemba Walker and thrived in that position. He really picked things up as the season came to a close and he was a top-25 9-cat player over the last two weeks and a top-10 8/9-cat player over the last week of the season. He's going to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason and if the Hornets don't pay him what he deserves, someone will.

Jeremy Lamb lit it up in Tuesday's blowout victory over the Cavs going for 23 points (9-of-13 FGs), three boards, five dimes, three treys, three steals and a block in 28 minutes.
Lamb has been hot again, especially in the steals department where he's averaging 2.3 per game over his last six. Believe it or not, Lamb has actually put up third-round value in 9-cat leagues over the past two months.

Jeremy Lamb put up 17 points, six rebounds, three assists, two steals and a 3-pointer in Sunday's win over the Pistons.
Lamb and Dwayne Bacon have been giving the Hornets some meaty production (sorry) out of the shooting guard spot lately. Bacon added 14 points and a 3-pointer of his own and it'll be all hands on deck for Charlotte as they cling to their playoff hopes. Keep both guys in lineups for the duration of the season, though Lamb is obviously the preferred play.

Jeremy Lamb hit the go-ahead 3-pointer with 3.3 seconds left in Friday’s takedown of the Raptors and finished with 22 points, two 3s, five rebounds, four assists, three steals and no turnovers.
Outside of some mild ankle discomfort affecting his play, Lamb has continued to excel coming off the bench. Starters Dwayne Bacon scored eight points with five rebounds and four assists while Miles Bridges managed seven points, five assists and a steal. Both Bacon and Bridges have really fallen off after their strong play last week.

Jeremy Lamb (right ankle discomfort) will be available to play in Wednesday's game against the Pelicans.
Lamb has taken a hit in his minutes as the Hornets have fallen out of the Playoff picture. Look for him to see somewhere in the low to mid 20 minute range. His floor in that allotment of minutes is top-150 value but he has top-100 upside.

The Hornets are listing Jeremy Lamb (right ankle discomfort) as probable for Wednesday's game against the Pelicans.
Lamb's playing time has dipped to 22.8 mpg over the past week and with the Hornets falling out of the playoff picture paired with the ankle issue, this may be the norm Lamb sees in the few games remaining. With that said, 23 minutes is more than enough time to put up a nice line against a depleted Pelicans team.

Jeremy Lamb came off the bench on Monday and scored 23 points on 9-of-16 shooting while adding four rebounds, a steal and a 3-pointer before exiting the game with right ankle discomfort.
Lamb came off the bench and logged 31 minutes before leaving the game with an ankle injury. It's uncertain as to how serious it is, but with the Hornets' playoff hopes dwindling, Lamb may not see the floor again this season. Hold onto him until we receive further updates.
