Batum accumulated 18 points (6-15 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 10 assists, six rebounds, and one steal in 30 minutes during Sunday's 120-106 win over the Suns. Batum has dished out at least 10 dimes seven times this season, and he has posted 14 double-doubles plus one triple-double. The 28-year-old is managing career highs in points (15.3) and assists (5.9) per game, and despite a career-low average in blocks (0.4), Batum is still one of the most well-rounded wings in the league.
Batum scored 16 points (5-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 5-7 FT) with six assists, one rebound and one steal across 31 minutes in Monday's 105-90 win over the Hawks. Batum got to the foul line aggressively and doubled his point total from his first game back Saturday after missing two games last week with migraine headaches. The versatile swingman has the unique ability to fill up the stat sheet in virtually any category on any given night, but he's sitting at a career low 40 percent from the field on the season which makes efficient games like the one he had Monday a welcome change of pace for fantasy owners.
Batum collected eight points (4-9 FG, 0-3 3Pt), 10 rebounds and five assists across 27 minutes during Saturday's 98-93 victory over the Wizards. After missing the Hornets' past two outings with a migraine headache, Batum returned to the starting five to provide a well-rounded performance against the Wizards. He's averaging a career-high in both points (15.4 PPG) and assists (5.9 APG) this season, while also grabbing 6.7 rebounds and swiping 1.1 steals per game. He remains an especially valuable asset in fantasy formats that list him as a shooting guard, as he provides a rare ability to stuff the stat sheet at that position.
Batum (head) will start for Saturday's tilt against the Wizards, Stephanie Ready of Fox Sports Southeast reports. Batum has missed the past two games due to a migraine headache, but will draw the start for Saturday's game. It continues to be unclear whether or not he'll face a minutes restriction, but the fact that he's in the starting lineup is a good sign for a regular workload. As a result, Jeremy Lamb will head back to the bench and likely see a reduced role.
Batum (head) will be available for Saturday's game against the Wizards. The versatile wing missed the last two games due to a migraine headache, but coach Steve Clifford confirmed Saturday morning that Batum will be available in some capacity against Washington. It's unclear if he'll face a minutes restriction, but further details should emerge later in the afternoon. Regardless, with Batum back in action, Jeremy Lamb figures to see a reduction in minutes.
