CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Hornets backup guard and former UConn national champion Jeremy Lamb has a strained left hamstring and will be out for this week’s games.
The team announced Monday that the 6-foot-5 Lamb will be re-evaluated in one to two weeks.
Lamb suffered the injury in the second quarter of Charlotte’s home loss Saturday night to the Boston Celtics. The fifth-year NBA player is averaging seven points and four rebounds per game in three appearances this season.
The Hornets host Philadelphia on Wednesday and travel to Brooklyn to take on the Nets on Friday night.
