  • New Hornets coach James Borrego indicated Tuesday that his starting lineup is not set entering training camp, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports. While Batum is a clear favorite to start on the wing, it looks as though Borrego will try to spark some competition in camp. Batum's primary competition comes in the form of Jeremy Lamb, Malik Monk and Miles Bridges -- with Lamb being the most likely of the three to see significant minutes. Regardless of Borrego's words, Batum has started every game in which he's played since 2012, so a shift to a bench role seems rather unlikely.

  • Hornets' Nicolas Batum: 14 points in finale
    By RotoWire Staff

    Batum tallied 14 points (5-9 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six assists and four rebounds during Tuesday's 119-93 win over Indiana. This was one of two games in which Batum scored in double figures since Mar. 15 to wrap up the regular season. The 28-year-old's season production of 11.6 points per game drastically declined from last year's total of 15.1 points per contest. Behind Dwight Howard, Batum is the second highest paid Hornets player and is set to make a enormous $24 million in 2018-19 during his third year of his five year contract.

  • Batum (Achilles) will play and start in Tuesday's matchup with the Bulls, but will be limited to around 20 minutes. Batum has played through the Achilles injury the last four games, but is clearly dealing with some discomfort considering his listing on the injury report earlier Tuesday. While he's officially been given the go ahead to take the court once again against the Bulls, Batum will still be on a restriction of around 20 minutes, so he can safely be avoided for DFS contests.

  • Batum (Achilles) has been upgraded from out to questionable for Tuesday's tilt against the Bulls and will be a game-time call. Batum has played four straight games after returning from a four-game absence due to an Achilles injury. He was originally listed as out due to soreness, but it appears he's feeling better than anticipated after going through morning shootaround. Over his past four appearances, he's averaging 7.3 points, 4.8 assists and 3.8 rebounds in 25.8 minutes.

  • Hornets' Nicolas Batum: Will not play Tuesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Batum will not play in Tuesday's game against the Bulls due to left Achilles soreness. Batum recently made his return to the hardwood after a four-game absence due to the Achilles injury, but the veteran swingman looks to be dealing with some lingering pain, so the Hornets will hold him out on their third game in four days. In Batum's absence, look for Jeremy Lamb to return to the starting shooting guard spot while Malik Monk sees some extended minutes off the bench.
