Lamb submitted 16 points (6-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-3 FT), seven rebounds, one steal and one block across 19 minutes in Tuesday's 111-107 win over the Nets.
Though Nicolas Batum and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist have been healthy of late and are locked into featured roles on the wing, Lamb has been able to see some increased run due to the domino effect of the recent injuries to Cody Zeller (quad) and Ramon Sessions (knee). Lamb has turned in double-digit scoring efforts in two straight contests, and it looks like he'll continue to stick in coach Steve Clifford's rotation while he's playing well. However, until Lamb begins to consistently see 20-plus-minutes per game, it will be difficult to depend on him for helpful scoring and rebound production outside of deeper formats.
Lamb (foot) put up three points (1-4 FG, 1-2 3Pt) and two rebounds across six minutes in a 115-98 loss to the Trail Blazers on Tuesday.
It was Lamb's first appearance since Jan. 10 after he had battled an inflamed metatarsal for the better part of the last three weeks. He likely wouldn't have seen the court had the outcome not already been decided by the fourth quarter, so Lamb isn't necessarily guaranteed to stick in the rotation if Wednesday's tilt with the Warriors proves more competitive.
Lamb (foot) has been upgraded to probable for Tuesday's game against the Blazers, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports.
Lamb has missed the last nine games with inflammation in his toe, but he's made tangible progress over the weekend and received a positive feedback at Monday's practice. While it's no guarantee that he'll return, Lamb is trending in the right direction, and more definitive information should be available after shootaround Tuesday. Prior to the injury, Lamb had been starting at shooting guard, and it remains to be seen whether or not coach Steve Clifford will re-insert him into the lineup.
Lamb is out for Saturday's contest against the Kings, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports.
Lamb's foot injury has still been bothering him, as he hasn't played in the Hornets' last two games, despite being listed as active. Marco Belinelli should remain the main beneficiary of his absence.
Lamb (foot) didn't see the floor in a 110-107 loss to the Knicks on Friday.
Lamb was available for the first time since Jan. 10 after reaching the finish line in his recovery from an inflamed metatarsal, but coach Steve Clifford opted to run a nine-man rotation, leaving no room for the reserve wing to pick up playing time. Even if Lamb gradually works his way back into the rotation mix in subsequent contests, he'll likely struggle to find meaningful minutes while he remains behind Nicolas Batum, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Marco Belinelli on the Hornets' depth chart on the wing.
