Nicolas Batum left Wednesday’s game in the third quarter due to a sore right toe and did not return.
The toe issue isn’t going away and that’s why owners should be liberal with stashing guys like Jeremy Lamb (toe) and Jeremy Lin. Batum saw 24 minutes of action and missed all four of his field goal attempts to finish with zero points, six boards, three assists and three turnovers. Along with the 20-point lead the Thunder had, the Hornets pulled the plug and he could easily be looking at more time off.
