Yesterday it was reported that Batum is still feeling pain in his elbow and he admitted that it’s limiting his game, so the Hornets might keep him out until that subsides. Corrective surgery was also mentioned as an option, but that’s only going to be an after-season path unless things really don’t improve. Jeremy Lamb will slot back into the starting five and should have no problems recapturing the middle-round value that he produced in the same role to start the year. Pick him up if he was dropped.
