MRI results revealed that Nicolas Batum is dealing with chronic tendinitis in his left Achilles, and he will miss Monday’s matchup vs. the Sixers.
The report highlights that “Batum will return based on how he responds to treatment” so owners are left in a tight spot with the playoffs approaching. Consider cutting Batum for a hot option like Corey Brewer if you can’t stash him for the coming week till we learn more. Jeremy Lamb and Malik monk will pickup time for the Hornets who have fallen out of the playoff race. Given Batum has another three seasons left on his contract he could easily miss the rest of this season.
