NBA rumors: Jeremy Lamb available to make season debut

More on Jeremy Lamb Injury

Scott Agness: Big news: Jeremy Lamb has been cleared by team doctors to play. Nate Bjorkgren won’t say whether or not he’ll get in tonight.
Scott Agness: Jeremy Lamb (torn ACL) said rehab has gone smoothly and he’s now able to play 1-on-1. “It’s going great right now and I’m just trying to get better every day.”
Scott Agness: An update on #FlyGuyFriday from Jeremy Lamb: Off the crutches soon. He had left knee surgery on March 11.

During the second quarter of the Pacers game at Toronto on Sunday, Indiana Pacers forward Jeremy Lamb sustained a torn left anterior cruciate ligament, a torn lateral meniscus, and a lateral femoral condylar fracture. He will undergo surgery on a date to be determined. He will be out the remainder of the season. Any further updates will be provided after surgery.
Scott Agness: Myles Turner is questionable for Sunday in Orlando. Goga Bitadze (concussion), Jeremy Lamb (ankle), Sumner and Oladipo are out. Two-way guys are in Fort Wayne. pic.twitter.com/ot2rDBa4AP
Rod Beard: #Pacers center Myles Turner is questionable tonight vs. #Pistons. Victor Oladipo, Jeremy Lamb, Goga Bitadze and Edmund Sumner all are OUT. #DFS
J. Michael Falgoust: Jeremy Lamb (hip) practiced Tues for the first time since being injured in the opener. Should be able to play v Nets on Wed for #Pacers
Scott Agness: Jeremy Lamb (hip pointer) won’t play tonight at Cavs. Edmond Sumner will start.
Rick Bonnell: JP Macura flew to Charlotte for the brief practice today to make sure he is up to speed on Hornets systems, so that he can be available at wing positions in response to Jeremy Lamb’s hamstring injury.
Rod Boone: James Borrego said Cody is going to be out for a while. Not quite sure how long Jeremy will be out due to tricky nature of hamstring injuries. FWIW, just saw Lamb leaving locker room and he wasn't walking overly gingerly. But walking on a hammy and running are 2 different things.
Rod Boone: Final: #Hornets 125, Magic 100: Biggest thing now will be how long Jeremy Lamb and Cody Zeller are out. With a lengthy 6-game West Coast trip on tap after Wednesday's home game vs. Mavs, it's not exactly the most ideal time.
Rod Boone: So that's a hamstring injury for Jeremy Lamb and a fractured right hand for Cody Zeller. #Hornets head into the new year banged up and down two starters. Not exactly a Happy New Year's eve.
Rick Bonnell: Frank Kaminsky (sprained ankle) and Jeremy Lamb (shin contusion) available to play. With Batum out, I’d think Lamb starts, with Dwayne Bacon his backup.
Rick Bonnell: UPDATE: @Charlotte Hornets now list Jeremy Lamb as OUT again with inflamed metatarsal. He was active last 2 games, but didn't play.

It’ll be a buyout. This is a given. It’ll be a buyout at some point. When they get to that stage, and he’s a free agent, he’s still a guy who is a really smart player, who has become a really great playmaker late in his career, a great passer out of the post and on the perimeter, who can still get by some guys, can knock down a jumper and has a little bit of range. So I think he can be a useful player—a rotation guy. But not a starter on a good team, likely a bench guy. And we can talk about possible destinations, but I think there are a few times that could use him.
With New York on track for its first winning season and playoff appearance since the 2012-2013 season, a lot of teams and players around the league have taken notice. In fact, ESPN’s Brian Windhorst revealed on his podcast that he believes an All-Star caliber player would demand a trade to the Knicks within the next 12 months. While Windhorst declined to name a specific All-Star player, he added that he has guesses about which players could potentially be lured to play in the Big Apple. He cited several reasons as to why players would want to play for the Knicks, from its status as one of the league’s biggest markets, the team’s collection of draft picks, and sizeable cap space that could be used to sign more players.
As James Harden prepares to face his former team for the first time since being traded to the Brooklyn Nets, the superstar guard reflected on his eight-year tenure with the Houston Rockets and said that when he enters Houston’s Toyota Center on Wednesday night (7:30 ET on ESPN), he hopes to be “received with love.” “The love and the appreciation that I’ve given to that city and that I still give to that city, I’m hoping that the favor can be returned,” Harden told ESPN in a wide-ranging interview.
