Nicolas Batum (Achilles) has been ruled out of Saturday's game against the Mavs.
Batum was listed as doubtful coming into today so it's not surprising to see him miss another game. It's looking like we may have seen the last of him this season, and his season took a while to get off the ground with an elbow injury that was followed by lackluster play. Batum had turned up the heat over the last month or so but is back on the injured list at a critical juncture of the season. Jeremy Lamb remains a must-own player. Cody Zeller is also out, allowing Willy Hernangomez to operate with Frank Kaminsky as the backup center options.
