Jeremy Lamb scored 11 points on 5-of-10 shoting with four rebounds, one assist, two steals, a block and a triple on Monday.
Lamb was much better than his last game, but the bar was on the floor so it wasn't hard to beat. With Victor Oladipo nearing a return, there's not much to love in regards to Lamb's fantasy outlook.

Jeremy Lamb was able to play through his bruised left hip on Monday against the Nuggets, but it led to horrendous results with zero points (0-of-7 FG), one rebound, one assist, one block.
While it was nice to see Lamb play through the injury, this is not what we had in mind. Things will get tougher for Lamb once Victor Oladipo returns, but it is best to tackle that logjam once it becomes an issue at this point. For the time being, Lamb is worth having in your lineup in standard leagues.

Myles Turner had a horrendous night against the Nuggets on Sunday, fouling out in 19 minutes, and tallying three points, two rebounds, one assist, one 3-pointer, one steal and three turnovers.
The nail in the coffin was Turner registering zero blocks, and he clearly was not up to the challenge of defending Nikola Jokic in this game. Turner has had three straight games at under 25 minutes, and now would be the time to fire off a buy-low offer if you are interested in his shot-blocking prowess. He is clearly not going to be an early-round talent next to Domantas Sabonis, but he still has the ability to increase his numbers from the 12 points and six rebounds he is currently averaging. The blocks (2.1) and 3-pointers (1.5) will keep him relevant either way. He had some good company in the cellar tonight as Jeremy Lamb flopped to zero points (0-of-7 FG), one rebound, one assist and one block. Both players will be better on Tuesday against the Suns.

Jeremy Lamb (bruised left hip) is available to play during Sunday's game versus the Nuggets.
The Pacers will have their starting lineup healthy and ready to go. Lamb's value is limited with Victor Oladipo's eventually return.

Jeremy Lamb (bruised left hip) is questionable to play against the Nuggets on Sunday.
Although Lamb has been struggling a bit lately, he is still a top-75 player in standard leagues on the season. A trade after his next big game is possible with Victor Oladipo returning in a few weeks.

Jeremy Lamb broke out of a recent slump on Friday, scoring 18 points to go with six rebounds, two assists, two steals and a 7-for-13 shooting line.
Lamb had scored two, four and nine points over his previous three contests and it was nice to see him get back to business in this one. He's an automatic add if anyone dropped him, though he's currently around the top-100 neighborhood and might slip a bit more when Victor Oladipo returns in a few weeks.

Jeremy Lamb finished with 13 points on 5-of-11 shooting, four rebounds, a steal and three 3-pointers on Wednesday.
Lamb did most of his damage from behind the arc tonight but didn't contribute much else in the counting categories. He has the skill set to help out in all categories to some degree, but we didn't see it tonight. He's currently a player with 6th-round value, a couple rounds above his ADP.

Jeremy Lamb rounded up a helpful collection of stats on Monday as he double-doubled with 11 points on 5-of-11 shooting, 10 rebounds, four assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes as the Pacers beat the Hornets in Charlotte.
Lamb has been reliable this season, but he's outside the top-100 over the past month. He's great if you need someone to help across the board, but he doesn't stand out in any particular category. Aaron Holiday also started but struggled with his shot in this one, as he had just three points on 1-of-7 FGs, two boards, five dimes, two swipes and a trey in 27 minutes.

Jeremy Lamb scored an efficient 30 points for the Pacers on Thursday, going 9-of-13 from the field (5-of-5 from deep) and a perfect 7-of-7 from the line, but it wasn't enough for the Pacers to overcome a deep Nuggets team.
Lamb also added six rebounds, two assists and one steal to box. He's a strong play while he's healthy and can be considered a sell-high candidate as there will be fewer touches for him when Victor Oladipo returns.

Jeremy Lamb (sore right groin) returned to action on Monday and quietly put up 12 points on 4-of-9 shooting with three rebounds, two 3s and three steals in 35 minutes.
Don't let the low-end line, considering this game went to overtime, get you down. It was a serviceable performance and the takeaway here is that he got a ton of minutes. Lamb should bounce back just fine as he gets his legs back.

Malcolm Brogdon (sore left hamstring) will not play on Monday.
Aaron Holiday should remain in the lineup despite the return of Jeremy Lamb. Brogdon's fantasy owners will miss the assists he provides, but hopefully it's a brief absence.

Jeremy Lamb (sore right groin) will be available for Monday's game.
This is positive news given his previous questionable tag. Aaron Holiday started on Sunday, but Lamb should regain his spot. Lamb has struggled with his shot lately but is generally good for double digit points with some steals sprinkled in.

Jeremy Lamb (sore right groin) is questionable for Monday against the Raptors.
Lamb was a game-time decision on Sunday but ended up sitting out, so hopefully the day of rest will push him over the hump. If Lamb sits again we should expect to see more of Aaron Holiday, Justin Holiday and Edmond Sumner.

Aaron Holiday will start in place of Jeremy Lamb during Sunday's game versus the Bucks.
Holiday has been productive when given minutes and is worth looking at in DFS despite the tough defensive matchup. His brother, Justin Holiday, will also see an increase in minutes off of the bench, but is more reliable for defensive stats.

Jeremy Lamb (sore right groin) has been ruled out of Sunday's game versus the Bucks.
With Lamb out we should see more Aaron Holiday, Justin Holiday and Edmond Sumner. The Holidays are the more attractive streaming and DFS options, but it's a tough matchup all around for the Pacers.
