Nicolas Batum scored 10 points on 3-of-9 shooting (including a three) with one rebound, five assists and one steal over 33 minutes in Wednesday’s loss to the Raptors.
Batum hasn’t been worth having in lineups since returning, averaging 9.2 points with 0.8 treys, 3.0 boards, 3.3 assists, 1.0 combined steals and blocks and just 34.6 percent from the field over his last six games. Things will get better anytime now and owners can still put him in lineups in hopes that he turns it around fast. Jeremy Lamb (18 points, three rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block, two threes, 29 minutes) has standalone value and never should have been dropped.
