    Hornets' Nicolas Batum: Will start Wednesday

    Batum (toe) will play and start in Wednesday's matchup with Cleveland. After struggling in his return from his toe injury last week, Batum sat out Sunday and it was unclear if he would play Wednesday. It's now clear that he'll play and start. In his return last week Batum played very poorly but still played an average of 35 minutes in those contest. At the very least he should get a large amount of time on the court, and we'll see if he can improve upon his lackluster performances.

    Hornets' Nicolas Batum: Will try to play vs. Cavs

    Batum (toe) will try to play in Wednesday's game against the Cavaliers, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports. The wording is rather vague in the report, but it sounds as though Batum will go through pregame warmups with the intent to play through any lingering discomfort in his right big toe. Assuming Batum takes the court, he'd likely claim his usual role at shooting guard, with Jeremy Lin the leading candidate to join him in the backcourt at point guard as a replacement for the injured Kemba Walker (knee). However, it's certainly possible that Batum, who's missed four of the last six contests, could end up being limited, so it would not be a surprise if P.J. Hairston ends up seeing a larger complement of minutes off the bench.

    Hornets' Nicolas Batum: Upgraded to questionable

    Batum (toe) has been upgraded to questionable for Wednesday's game against Cleveland. Batum was initially listed as doubtful to play, so this is a step in the right direction, but it still remains very much unclear whether or not he'll be able to take the floor Wednesday night. The rangy wing has missed four of the last six games while battling a nagging toe injury, and he shot just 3-of-20 from the field in the two games in which he's played over that span. If Batum sits again, P.J. Hairston would likely draw the start alongside Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.

    Hornets' Nicolas Batum: Doubtful with toe issue

    Batum (toe) is considered doubtful to play Wednesday against Cleveland. Batum has been nagged by a toe injury for most of the last month, and it's caused him to miss four of the last six contests. The two games in which he did play - Wednesday at Utah and Friday at Portland - saw Batum struggle, going a combined 3-of-20 from the floor with eight turnovers in an average of 35 minutes. The Hornets expect to hold Batum out again Wednesday after the versatile wing sat out Sunday's 101-82 win over the Lakers. Assuming that's the case, Marvin Williams would likely start alongside Michael Kidd-Gilchrist on the wing.

    Hornets' Nicolas Batum: Ruled out for Sunday

    Batum (toe) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Lakers. Batum's nagging toe injury will cause him to sit out Sunday after he played 70 minutes in his first two games since coming back from the same ailment. The Hornets could have some back court depth issues when they take on the Lakers as Jeremy Lin (ankle) and Jeremy Lamb (toe) are banged up as well.

    Hornets' Nicolas Batum: Struggles in Wednesday's return

    Batum (toe) contributed six points (2-9 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 10 rebounds, and two assists in 30 minutes during the Hornets' 102-73 loss to the Jazz on Wednesday. Batum missed the three previous games with a sprained toe, all of which the Hornets surprisingly won. If his toe is alright going forward, the well-rounded forward will likely get back on track in due time. The Hornets are back in action on Friday against Batum's former Trail Blazer team, and he will undoubtedly want to play well in his return to Portland.

    Hornets' Nicolas Batum: A game-time call

    Batum (toe) is considered a game-time call for Wednesday's matchup with Utah, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports. Batum has missed the last three gams with soreness in his big toe, but he could be nearing a return, and the team will likely evaluate him following warmups Wednesday night. After a strong start to the season, Batum has cooled off of late, averaging just 10.0 points, 6.9 assists and 4.9 rebounds in seven January contests.

    Hornets' Nicolas Batum: Questionable for Wednesday

    Batum (toe) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Jazz. Baum has spent the last three games on the sidelines due to soreness in his right big toe but Tuesday marks the first he has been ruled questionable for a game since suffering the injury, a positive sign for the 27-year-old. Look for an official decision to come after Wednesday morning's shootaround at the earliest. The Hornets have gone 3-0 during Batum's absence.

    Batum (toe) will not play Monday against the Kings, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports. Batum will miss a third straight game as he rests the sprained toe on his right foot. With Jeremy Lamb also out, look for P.J. Hairston and Jeremy Lin to both see increased roles in the backcourt. Batum should be considered questionable for Wednesday's matchup with Utah.
