Nicolas Batum netted 12 points to go with five rebounds, six assists, one steal and two blocks in Saturday’s win over the Bucks.
He shot just 5-of-13 but the fact that his lines are starting to expand is a good sign. Hopefully his elbow holds up and the upward trajectory continues, as he’s got a long way to go to deliver on his ADP. As Batum improves, keep an eye on the workload for Jeremy Lamb. He scored 13 points in 19 minutes tonight but has been good enough to warrant a hold across the board. The Hornets have spoken a lot about how they want to keep him involved so he shouldn’t have much trouble retaining standard league value even on the bench.
