Hornets player Nicolas Batum is listed as questionable with a corneal abrasion for Saturday’s game against the Knicks.
He suffered this injury in Friday’s game versus the Knicks and has been downgraded to questionable for Saturday night’s rematch. He played 45 minutes in Friday’s match and with Marvin Williams listed as doubtful, the Hornets could be forced to rely on their reserves for Saturday. If Batum is unable to go, expect heavy minutes from both Marco Belinelli and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and possibly some Jeremy Lamb.
INJURY REPORT: @hornets vs NYK 11/26
Batum (corneal abrasion) is QUESTIONABLE
M. Williams (hyper-extended L knee) is DOUBTFUL
