Hornets' Nicolas Batum: Re-ups with Charlotte for five years
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Batum agreed to Friday to re-sign with the Hornets on a five-year, $120 million contract, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports.

Though he battled lower-body injuries for much of the second half of the 2015-16 campaign, Batum's first season with the Hornets was an unquestionable success, as he averaged a career-high 14.9 points while chipping in 6.1 rebounds, 5.8 assists, 1.9 three-pointers and 0.9 steals per game in 70 appearances. The two-way swingman attracted interest as a free agent from several clubs, but the Hornets made bringing back Batum a top priority, and were able to submit a long-term commitment quickly. With the 27-year-old back in the fold and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (shoulder) expected to be healthy before the start of the upcoming season, the Hornets should boast one of the league's best defensive combinations on the wing, allowing leading scorer Kemba Walker to focus most of his efforts on the offensive end.

Hornets' Nicolas Batum: Scores 10 points in Game 7 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicolas Batum (foot) recorded 10 points (3-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five rebounds, and two assists across 29 minutes in Sunday's 106-73 Game 7 loss to the Heat.

Batum, who has been bothered since late in the regular season by lower left leg issues, was able to fight through the pain and play his most minutes since Game 2, but it ultimately proved fruitless as the Charlotte Hornets were soundly defeated. With the Hornets now officially sent packing, Batum should have the entire offseason to rest up and heal while entering free agency as an attractive commodity.

Hornets' Nicolas Batum: Available to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Batum (foot) will be available to play in Sunday's Game 7 against the Heat.

Batum was warming up earlier Sunday morning with the intention of playing, so it comes as no surprise he'll be available to take the court. He's going to see his minutes restricted though, as the Hornets reported they'll likely limit him to just seven or eight minutes per half at the most. Considering the circumstances and limitations, fantasy owners may want to avoid using Batum until he sees further improvement with his foot injury.

Hornets' Nicolas Batum: Will attempt to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Batum (foot) is going through warmups with the intention of playing in Sunday's Game 7 against the Heat, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Batum aggravated a foot injury during Game 6 on Friday and continues to deal with some lingering pain. He's attempting to give it a gofor Game 7, but even if Batum does take the court, the Hornets are only expected to rely on him for a maximum of seven or eight minutes per half. Since it appears Batum will be heavily restricted Sunday, DFS players will likely want to steer clear of him.

Hornets' Nicolas Batum: Questionable for Game 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nicolas Batum (foot) is listed as questionable for Sunday's Game 7 against Miami, Justin Verrier of ESPN reports.

Batum was removed from Friday's Game 6 after sustaining what the team is calling a strained left foot. Batum, of course, missed Games 3 and 4 of the series with a left ankle sprain, so it's possible the ailments are related. Regardless, Batum will rest and receive treatment Saturday with a more definitive update expected at shootaround Sunday morning.
