Nicolas Batum ended his substandard season with 14 points (5-of-9 shooting), four rebounds, six assists and two triples in Tuesday's win over the Pacers.
A preseason elbow injury really kept Batum from getting his season off the ground quickly, and he was outside the top-150 for most of his first few weeks back on the court. He did have a week or two of vintage early-round production before an Achilles injury put him back on the shelf. As such, it's no surprise that he finished as a top-110/125 guy on the full season in a year where he played in just 63 contests. He was a top-85/100 player on a per-game basis, which does lend some hope to continued middle-round output next season.
