Batum had just two points, four rebounds, two assists, two steals, and one block in 24 minutes during Sunday's 137-90 loss to the Warriors. Batum was back on the floor Sunday but did very little apart from racking up three defensive stats. He has been out with an illness and was a healthy DNP in their last game. His role moving forward is certainly far from set in stone and he should be viewed as a player to stream in most situations, and even that could be a stretch at this point of the season.
Batum ended the game with zero contributions, failing to leave the bench in Friday's 129-115 loss to the Lakers. Batum was a healthy DNP Friday, remaining on the bench for the duration of the game. This was a bitter blow for anyone who streamed him in upon hearing he would in fact play. His status for the Hornets next game is unclear and this could be a situation to avoid for many owners.
Batum (illness) is not listed on the injury report for Friday's game against the Lakers. Batum has missed the last three games with what ended up being a fairly serious illness, but it appears the swingman is back to full strength after losing eight pounds while sidelined. There has been no report, however, that Batum is going to face any restrictions, so expect him to be a full go Friday.
Batum (illness) has been officially ruled out for Tuesday's game against San Antonio, Jeff Garcia of News 4 San Antonio reports. Batum was tagged as doubtful due to illness, so this latest news is simply a formality. He'll have a chance to get back on the court Friday in Los Angeles against the Lakers.
Batum (illness) said he does not expect to play in Tuesday's game against the Spurs, Rick Bonnell of The Charlotte Observer reports. Batum has missed the last two games due to illness, and it appears to have taken a serious tole on the veteran swingman given that he has lost eight pounds since coming down with it. Batum will likely need some more time to get back into game shape, and his next chance to play, assuming he will officially be ruled out Tuesday, will be in Friday's trip to Los Angeles.
