Charlotte's Jeremy Lamb will miss Friday's game

Charlotte Hornets guard/forward Jeremy Lamb (foot) will not play on Friday against the Philadelphia 76ers What It Means: Nicolas Batum wil be back and might have to play some extra minutes with Lamb out. Marco Belinelli will also be in for a boost in minutes off the bench until Lamb is ready to play. However, Lamb is just dealing with inflammation, so he could be back relatively soon. Lamb is averaging a career-best 9.2 points with 4.8 rebounds and 1.2 assists over 17.8 minutes per game. He is shooting just 23.1% from downtown, which has contributed to a .475 effective field...

Hornets using Roy Hibbert in place of Cody Zeller

Charlotte Hornets forward/center Cody Zeller (illness) and Nicolas Batum (knee) have been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Houston Rockets. What It Means: Enter Roy Hibbert, who is expected to split time with Spencer Hawes at the five, limiting his fantasy appeal. Jeremy Lamb will continue to start for Nicolas Batum (knee), while Marco Belinelli should receive extended opportunity off the bench. Hibbert is projected to turn in 6.7 points, 5.5 rebounds and 1.4 blocks in 20.5 minutes on Tuesday night. Source: Rotoworld.com

Charlotte listing Nicolas Batum (knee) as doubtful for Tuesday

Charlotte Hornets guard/forward Nicolas Batum (knee) is doubtful to play Tuesday versus the Houston Rockets. What It Means: Batum is expected to miss 1-2 weeks after going down last Thursday night, but maybe it's possible he recovers in time for Friday's matchup with the Philadelphia 76ers. Owners shouldn't count on it, however, meaning Marco Belinelli and Jeremy Lamb will continue to see increased opportunity. Batum is having a strong year, averaging career-highs in points (15.1) and assists (5.8), to go with 7.4 rebounds, in 34.5 minutes per game. He owns a 0.2 nERD on the...

Hornets confirm Nicolas Batum (knee) is sidelined

Charlotte Hornets guard/forward Nicolas Batum has officially been ruled out for Saturday against the San Antonio Spurs due to a hyperextended right knee. What It Means: Batum is expected to miss 1-2 weeks with the injury and he will likely be listed as "day-to-day" during the recovery. Marco Belinelli and Jeremy Lamb should benefit the most during Batum's absence. Batum is having a strong year, averaging career-highs in points (15.1) and assists (5.8), to go with 7.4 rebounds, in 34.5 minutes per game. He owns a 0.3 nERD on the season, ranking 127th in the...

Hornets' Nicolas Batum (knee) will miss 1-2 weeks

Charlotte Hornets guard/forward Nicolas Batum will miss 1-2 weeks after hyperextending his right knee on Thursday night. What It Means: The MRI on Batum's right knee revealed he didn't suffer any structural damage. The Hornets only play three times over the next seven days, so that would be convenient scheduling if he's able to make a quick recovery. Batum is leading the Hornets with 34.5 minutes per game this season, the majority of which will be dispersed between Marco Belinelli, Jeremy Lamb and Marvin Williams. Batum is having a strong year, averaging career-highs in points...
