The UCONN product played in 46 games with the Pacers this season, where he averaged 12.5 points, 4.3 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game.
Lamb signed a 3 year / $31,500,000 contract with the Indiana Pacers during the summer. His impact coming off the bench was huge for Nate McMillan's squad.
In his absence, TJ Warren and Doug McDermott will have to step up if the Pacers want to have a chance of making the second round of the playoffs in the Eastern Conference.
