Nicolas Batum returned from an Achilles injury on Monday and logged 24 minutes, scoring nine points on 3-of-5 shooting with three rebounds, four assists, a block and a 3-pointer.
Batum returned to the starting lineup but is dealing with a minutes restriction from 22-28 minutes which means owners in their championship week can do better. With only a handful of games left in the year, it doesn’t make sense to stash Batum as he was producing as the No. 85 player in 9-cat leagues at full strength. The best case scenario is that you get a couple games with that production and the worst case is that you waste a roster spot on a player working back from injury.
