Top Nicolas Batum News

  • Clippers' Nicolas Batum: Increased usage looms

    Batum totaled 13 points (4-6 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), one rebound, one assist and one steal in 20 minutes during Saturday's 131-110 loss to New Orleans.

    Batum played well in the blowout loss, and if Kawhi Leonard's (face) injury forces him to miss a few games, Batum will emerge as the primary beneficiary. A potential Leonard loss is a lethal combination with Paul George (leg) unavailable through the end of the season, making Batum instrumental in an effort to keep pace in the playoff hunt.

  • Clippers' Nicolas Batum: Scores 12 in victory

    Batum closed Thursday's 127-105 victory over Oklahoma City with 12 points (4-6 FG, 4-6 3Pt), two rebounds, three assists and two steals in 19 minutes.

    Batum was held below 10 points in his seven appearances prior to Thursday's matchup, but he was efficient from beyond the arc during the comfortable win over the Thunder. He's scored in double figures just twice across 10 March appearances, averaging 4.9 points and 2.3 rebounds in 20.1 minutes per game.

  • Clippers' Nicolas Batum: Scores six off bench

    Batum ended with six points (2-5 FG, 2-4 3Pt), two assists and two steals in 20 minutes during Wednesday's 134-126 win over the Warriors.

    Batum has returned to a bench role over the last four matchups and has had a limited role in those appearances. He saw a slight uptick in scoring Wednesday but has averaged just 2.5 points and 3.3 rebounds in 17.0 minutes per game over his last four outings.

  • Clippers' Nicolas Batum: Set to start against Sacramento

    Batum is in the starting lineup for Friday's game versus the Kings, Joey Linn of SI.com reports.

    Batum will replace Kawhi Leonard (rest) in the starting five Friday. The 33-year-old forward is averaging 7.3 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.6 assists in 27.1 minutes across his 11 starts this season.

  • Clippers' Nicolas Batum: Stellar line in elevated minutes

    Batum finished Friday's 176-175 double-overtime loss to the Kings with 19 points (7-12 FG, 5-10 3Pt), eight rebounds, two assists and one steal in 38 minutes.

    The two extra periods helped prop up Batum's minutes count, but he was well on his way to finishing with a productive fantasy line by the end of regulation. That being said, the Clippers were without starting center Ivica Zubac (calf), which had a hand in Batum seeing more run than usual behind fill-in starter Mason Plumlee as a small-ball option at the position. In his previous five games before Friday, Batum had averaged 4.4 points, 3.8 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.0 three-pointers, 0.8 blocks and 0.6 steals in 20.4 minutes, so fantasy managers are probably best off not drawing any grand conclusions from his performance against the Kings.

  • Clippers' Nicolas Batum: Available Friday

    Batum (back) is available Friday against the Bucks.

    Batum popped up on the injury report right before warmups, so this does make him a little riskier than usual for streaming purposes, but he will at least be in uniform and available for the contest.

  • Clippers' Nicolas Batum: Questionable Friday

    Batum is dealing with lower back spasms and is questionable Friday against the Bucks.

    The veteran forward is a very late addition to the injury report. Kawhi Leonard is resting Friday, so we could see more of Norman Powell and Terance Mann.

  • Clippers' Nicolas Batum: Clutch three-pointer prevents loss

    Batum produced 10 points (3-4 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three assists, two rebounds, two blocks and one steal in 27 minutes during Saturday's 134-128 overtime win over the Knicks.

    While his overall production was nothing spectacular, Batum might have provided the biggest play of the game, when he hit a three-pointer as time expired in regulation to send the game to overtime. Head coach Tyronn Lue has run a tight rotation at the moment, which has had a hand in Batum getting 27 minutes in two of the Clippers' last three contests. Batum's role looks secure enough at the moment for him to warrant some attention in deeper formats.

  • Clippers' Nicolas Batum: Moves back to bench

    Batum is not starting Tuesday against the Bulls, Joey Linn of SI.com reports.

    The 34-year-old made a spot start Sunday with Kawhi Leonard (knee), Paul George (knee) and Marcus Morris (ribs) sitting out, though he went scoreless in just seven minutes. Batum came off the bench in the prior five contests and averaged 6.4 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.2 assists over 24.2 minutes during that stretch.

  • Clippers' Nicolas Batum: Starting Sunday

    Batum will start Sunday's game against the Cavs, Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    With Kawhi Leonard (knee), Paul George (knee) and Marcus Morris (ribs) sitting the second leg of a back-to-back, the Clippers will play with a skeleton crew on the wing. That means Batum will move into the starting lineup for the first time since Jan. 18. The veteran should be poised for a slight bump in minutes, but he still doesn't make for an overly appealing fantasy option. Looking ahead, the Clippers don't face another back-to-back until the first week of March.
