CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Jeremy Lamb will start at guard for the Hornets against the Chicago Bulls on Monday night with Nic Batum out with a migraine.

However, Charlotte center Frank Kaminsky will return after missing the past five games with a sprained shoulder.

Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg says Rajon Rondo will start in hopes of helping Chicago get off to a quicker start. Jerian Grant had been starting for the Bulls at point guard.

“We’re struggling to get easy baskets, obviously in that first group,” Hoiberg said before Monday night’s game.
