Charlotte Hornets Fantasy Spin

Jeremy Lamb (hamstring) said he will play on Tuesday against the Clippers. "I'm going to play," Lamb said. "I went through shootaround, felt good. I'm going to play." Lamb was one of the last players off the court at shootaround, and while his official status is still questionable, it sounds like he'll get back out there following a three-game absence. Lamb should immediately be re-inserted into the starting five, which will shift Devonte' Graham back to the second unit.

Los Angeles Clippers Fantasy Spin

The Clippers won on Sunday despite a quiet game from Danilo Gallinari, who shot 5-of-16 to score 13 points with five rebounds, two assists and zero steals, blocks or turnovers. Gallinari has still been a top-25 player in his past 15 games, averaging 20.5 points, 2.1 threes, 6.7 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 0.9 steals. He's doing it with strong percentages (49.7% FGs, 92.4% FTs), but most importantly he's only missed one game despite playing heavy minutes. Even optimistic owners couldn't have foreseen this level of productivity on draft day.
