With Jeremy Lamb also unlikely to play, Charlotte could be digging deep off the bench in this one. Treveon Graham picked up extra run on Friday while Malik Monk and Dwayne Bacon carried the load with Batum out earlier in the year. None of the three are great streamer plays but should see solid rotation minutes tonight. Batum’s season hasn’t gotten off to a strong start, as he’s only been a fringe standard league value upon his return from injury. He’ll undoubtedly improve as time passes and makes for a decent buy low target, assuming you’re not scared by the injury and shutdown potential as the Hornets continue to flounder.
