Hornets starting two guard Nic Batum (elbow) is doubtful to play against the Rockets on Wednesday.
Batum is day-to-day at this point, but his injury could linger and the Hornets might consider sitting him for an extended period to try and get the elbow healthy again. In his stead Jeremy Lamb will start in his place and Treveon Graham will see increased minutes off the bench. Batum is too valuable to drop, but unless he can get the elbow healthy his already poor career shooing numbers will continue to take a dive this season (37 percent field goal)
