Hornets' Nicolas Batum: Minimal impact in return to the floor
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Hornets' Nicolas Batum: Fails to see any action Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Hornets' Nicolas Batum: Absent from injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Hornets' Nicolas Batum: Out Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Batum (illness) has been officially ruled out for Tuesday's game against San Antonio, Jeff Garcia of News 4 San Antonio reports.

Hornets' Nicolas Batum: Doubtful for Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Hornets' Nicolas Batum: Ruled out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Batum (illness) will not play Sunday against Toronto.

The veteran will miss a second straight game due to illness, which should again equate to increased minutes on the wing for Miles Bridges and Dwayne Bacon.

Hornets' Nicolas Batum: Ruled out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Batum (illness) has been ruled out of Saturday's game against Boston.

Hornets' Nicolas Batum: Downgraded to doubtful
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Batum (illness) has been downgraded to doubtful for Saturday's matchup against the Celtics, Gary Washburn of The Boston Globe reports.

The veteran will most likely sit out Saturday's game. Assuming he's out, Malik Monk, Dwayne Bacon and Devonte' Graham should see extra run.

Hornets' Nicolas Batum: Questionable with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Batum is considered questionable for Saturday's game against the Celtics due to an illness.

Keep an eye on the veteran's status as tip-off approaches, though his value has taken a considerable hit of late, and he was moved to the bench for the first time all season Thursday against the Timberwolves. Batum finished that game with just two points and four rebounds in 23 minutes.

March 21, 2019 06:52 PM
Hornets' Nicolas Batum: Coming off bench Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Batum will come off the bench Thursday against the Timberwolves.

Batum will come off the bench for the first time all season, as coach James Borrego has opted to go with Dwayne Bacon at shooting guard. It's not clear if this will be a permanent decision moving forward.

Hornets' Nicolas Batum: Absent from injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Batum (eye) is not listed on the injury for Friday's game in Washington.

As expected, Batum has been cleared to play after missing his first game of the season Monday due to a right eye abrasion. Batum is expected to be a full go, which would send Jeremy Lamb back to his regular role off the bench.

March 12, 2019 01:52 PM
Hornets' Nicolas Batum: Expects to play Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Batum (eye) is optimistic he'll be ready to play in the Hornets' next game Friday versus the Wizards, Rod Boone of The Athletic reports.

Batum was sidelined for the first time all season in Monday's 118-106 loss to the Rockets while tending to a right eye abrasion. The swingman is scheduled for an eye exam Tuesday and expects to receive clearance from doctors to resume game action over the weekend. In the event Batum's eye doesn't improve as expected, Jeremy Lamb could be in store for another start on the wing.

Hornets' Nicolas Batum: Late scratch Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Batum has been ruled out of Monday's game against the Rockets with a right eye abrasion.

After initially being listen in the starting five, Batum has been ruled out just minutes prior to tip-off. It's unclear when Batum suffered the injury, or how severe it is, however more information should come out following Monday's game. In his place, Dwayne Bacon will draw the start.

Hornets' Nicolas Batum: Shoulders another heavy workload
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Batum scored 10 points (4-11 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT) and registered eight rebounds along with five assists and two steals in 39 minutes Friday against the Wizards.

Batum has logged 39 minutes in each of his previous two contests, and he nearly secured a double-double Friday evening. The 6-8 forward doesn't always put up serviceable scoring numbers, but he consistently produces across multiple categories and is averaging an eye-popping 40.2 minutes over his previous five contests. Batum should continue to see plenty of opportunities to make plays for the Hornets.

March 6, 2019 11:12 PM
Hornets' Nicolas Batum: Plays team-high 39 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Batum logged nine points (3-13 FG, 3-9 3Pt), seven rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one steal across 39 minutes in Wednesday's 91-84 loss to the Heat.

Batum shot poorly Wednesday night, spending most of his time launching away from three, however, he made up for it by contributing stats in all other major categories, getting rough on defense in what was a stingy game. Batum may not be the scorer he once was, but he still has a solid understanding of the game and a unique skillset that lets him be a multifaceted producer for the Hornets.

Hornets' Nicolas Batum: Well-rounded line in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Batum contributed 17 points (6-11 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, five assists, and one block in 40 minutes during Friday's 123-112 win over the Nets.

Batum has reached double figures in scoring in five consecutive games, his longest streak of the season. Moreover, he has handed out 17 assists across the last three games while filling up the box score across multiple categories lately. The 30-year-old forward has been underwhelming for much of the campaign, but he has stepped up in a big way since the All-Star break.

Hornets' Nicolas Batum: Scores 17 in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Batum amassed 17 points (7-13 FG, 3-5 3Pt), six rebounds, six assists, two steals and two blocks in 41 minutes Wednesday against Houston.

Batum played a whopping 41 minutes Wednesday, using the extra run to generate his fourth-straight double-figure performance. While he's struggled with consistency much of the season, the veteran wing appears to have found his shooting touch recently, having drained 14-of-29 threes over his past four outings. While Batum doesn't have a very high ceiling fantasy-wise, he has the capability produce across several categories, evidenced by his recent streak of play.

Hornets' Nicolas Batum: Solid contributions in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Batum accounted for 14 points (5-11 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six assists, five rebounds, three steals and a block in 37 minutes during Monday's loss to Golden State.

Batum topped double-digits for the third-straight game, while managing to contribute in every category Monday. After hitting 9-of-18 shots from behind the arc over his past two outings, Batum regressed to hit just 33-percent of his threes against the Warriors. While he's shooting the ball well on the season -- making 45.9 percent of his shots from the field -- Batum's scoring average is at the lowest it's been during his tenure in Charlotte, at 9.5 points per game.

Hornets' Nicolas Batum: Makes impact in new role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Batum scored 20 points (7-13 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 1-1 FT) while adding eight rebounds and five assists in 37 minutes during Friday's 123-110 win over the Wizards.

Shifted to shooting guard to get more length in the Hornets' starting lineup, Batum put together one of his best performances of the season and tied his season high in made three-pointers. The veteran wing has typically been more comfortable at the two in his career, so if the move sticks, Batum could return to the level of production he posted during his first two campaigns in Charlotte rather than the reduced numbers he's been providing over the last season and a half.
