Nicolas Batum scored 24 points on 9-of-18 shooting (including five threes) with eight rebounds, nine assists, one steal and one block in the Hornets’ 101-93 loss to the Nuggets on Saturday.
Batum has been a top 35-55 player when on the floor this season and about a round below that when you look at cumulative value because of days off. Though he’ll probably have a hard time beating his ADP, it has still been a solid season for his fantasy owners and in general. Backcourt teammate Courtney Lee added seven points, four rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block and has been playing well enough to be worth a look in 12-team leagues, but owners need to have a little caution because he has a tendency to disappear right when you pick him up.
