Batum (toe) will participate in warmups and is expected to play in Sunday's game against the Nuggets.

Batum likely hasn't fully recovered from the right toe sprain that sidelined him for the Hornets' previous four games, but it sounds like he's made enough progress to see the court in at least some capacity. Assuming that Batum endures no late setbacks with the toe injury, he should be able to reclaim his spot in the starting lineup, though the Hornets could opt to limit his minutes against one of the Western Conference's worst teams.
