Jeremy Lamb Cleared For First Game Action Since February

Pacers team doctors have green-lit wing Jeremy Lamb to return to game action for the first time this season, per Scott Agness of Fieldhouse Files (Twitter link). Head coach Nate Bjorkgren would not divulge whether or not Lamb will play in tonight’s contest against the Mavericks, Agness adds.

Whenever Lamb does come back for Indiana, it will mark his first on-court appearance since tearing his left ACL on February 23, 2020 in a 127-81 loss to the Raptors. The 6’5″ swingman, 28, is in the second season of a three-year, $31.5MM contract he signed with the Pacers in 2019.

Across 46 games with Indiana (including 42 starts) of a possible 90 contests (including the 2020 postseason), he averaged 12.5 PPG, 4.3 RPG, 2.1 APG, and 1.2 SPG. He posted a promising slash line of .451/.335/.836.

With starting small forward T.J. Warren and new addition Caris LeVert sidelined indefinitely, Lamb’s return will provide the Pacers with a much-needed offensive boost on the perimeter.

    welp, da pacers can never stay healthy enough to be an actual dangerous champ contender in da east, especially their starters. still, levert’s injury is extremely serious and troubling. imagine a brogdan, levert, warren, sabonis, and turner lineup? it will be a very dangerous lineup dont y’all think?

      Based on all these injuries I’d say only danger the Pacers pose is to themselves

      Yeah lil D got a lil Deep on that 1

      If that line up gets back together before the playoffs and they hit their stride at the right time they could knock some people out.

  2. Watching the Pacers can we all agree TJ McConnell is (one of) the most underrated player(s) in the league?

      Yes a fun player to focus on watching. Often has better stats than the starter!
