    Nicolas Batum started for the Hornets on Saturday and posted a well-rounded, albeit low-end line with five points (2-of-4 shooting), three rebounds, three assists, one 3-pointer, one steal and one block.

    Batum played 30 minutes in this one and it's a concern that he only took four shot attempts. On the other hand, it was good to see him active and able to contribute in other areas. Batum is a risky play right now and can be left on the wire. He replaced Cody Zeller, who was solid with 13 points (4-of-5 FGs, 5-of-9 FTs), eight rebounds, one assist and two steals.

    Nicolas Batum will start at small forward in Saturday's game versus the Jazz.

    This will be Batum's first start of the season and Zeller will be moving to the bench at his expense. He's not going to have a huge ceiling, but at a cheap salary he's worth a look in DFS.

    Nicolas Batum (left hand discomfort) is listed as probable for Wednesday's game.

    Batum has been out about a week but should be back on the floor against the Cavs. Batum is only averaging 21.9 minutes this season, although he could see a bit more action with P.J. Washington sidelined. He's still not a recommended option.

    Nicolas Batum (left hand discomfort) is being ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Kings

    There were conflicting reports earlier about Batum playing on Tuesday, and now we have the official word that he will sit this one out. His next chance to play will be on Wednesday against the Cavs. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Marvin Williams and Miles Bridges will see extra minutes with Batum and P.J. Washington out.

    Marvin Williams (right knee soreness) will be available to play against the Kings on Tuesday.

    With P.J. Washington (finger) out at least through Christmas, Williams may find himself in the starting lineup. Nicolas Batum (hand) is also out for this game, so Williams could flirt with 30 minutes tonight. The Hornets play again on Wednesday against the Cavs, making Williams a viable streaming option.

    Nicolas Batum (left hand discomfort) is being listed as doubtful for Tuesday's game against the Kings.

    This comes after the Hornets PR account announced Batum has been upgraded to questionable and beat writer reports that suggested Batum would return. Stay tuned for more information as there seems to be a wide range of outcomes for Batum on Tuesday. If he can play, he will see some extra minutes with P.J. Washington out.

    The Hornets announced this morning that Nicolas Batum has been upgraded to questionable for the game against the Kings on Tuesday.

    Batum has been sidelined for the last three games and it’s uncertain whether he will make his return tonight. The Hornets actually have a need for healthy bodies with PJ Washington out but Batum has been far from a reliable fantasy asset this year.

    The Hornets have listed Nic Batum (left hand discomfort) as doubtful ahead of Tuesday's game.

    Batum has missed the last three games, and his continued absence will open up more run for Malik Monk and Cody Martin. There's not much here for fantasy purposes.

    Nicolas Batum (left hand contusion) has been downgraded to out for Sunday's game versus the Pacers.

    He was trending in this direction since yesterday, but this leaves the Hornets dangerously short at the SF spot. The Pacers are a big team, so we might see some more lineups with Miles Bridges at the three to counter Indiana's size.

    Nicolas Batum (left hand contusion) is being listed as questionable for Sunday's game versus the Pacers.

    Batum may be in line to see an increase in playing time with P.J. Washington expected to miss some time. If Batum sits this one out we should see a little more Dwayne Bacon and Malik Monk with Miles Bridges sliding up to play some four.

    Nicolas Batum (left hand discomfort) is unavailable for when the Hornets clash with the Bulls on Friday.

    Batum has been a disappointment this season, and it appears his days of filling up the box score are long gone at this point for the Hornets. At this point he is just mucking up the rest of the rotation for guys like Dwayne Bacon and P.J. Washington.

    Nicolas Batum (left hand discomfort) is doubtful for Friday's tilt with the Bulls.

    Batum left Tuesday's game and missed Wednesday's contest entirely, it looks like this injury could cost him some time. He's only averaging 21.9 mpg on the season, which puts him well outside the top-200.

    Nicolas Batum will not face the Nets on Wednesday due to discomfort in his left hand.

    Batum has been averaging 21.9 minutes per game but is averaging a career-low 3.3 field goal attempts per game. His usage so far this year is also a career-low (9.5). With Batum ruled out, Malik Monk (game-time decision) could see more minutes if he ends up playing. Dwayne Bacon would also see some minutes.

    The Hornets are declaring Nicolas Batum as doubtful to play against the Nets on Wednesday due to his left hand discomfort.

    Batum only played 13 minutes on Tuesday and it’s clear that he is being bothered by the injury so he might sit a few games in order to fully heal. There has been a Michael Kidd-Gilchrist appearance lately but it’s Devonte' Graham and P.J. Washington who will likely get the extra minutes if Batum is forced to miss any action.

    Nic Batum left Tuesday night's game with left hand discomfort in the fourth quarter and did not return.

    We'll have to see if this is related to his previous injuries to his hand and just how severe the issue is. Batum's night ended with just two rebounds and one assist in 13 minutes.
