Nicolas Batum has been replaced in the starting lineup on Thursday night, with Dwayne Bacon drawing the start against the Wolves.
Batum is expected to be available off the bench, though he could be dealing with an undisclosed injury. He has started every game he's played in this year and it could be James Borrego looking for a spark with Charlotte trying to scrap their way into the playoffs.

Nicolas Batum finished Sunday's ugly loss with 12 points on 3-of-11 shooting and seven rebounds in 35 minutes.
In a game where the Hornets had 75 points, you can guess that nobody really had a good showing. Batum scored 10 of his points in the third quarter but didn't get anything in the fourth, where Charlotte was outscore 32-15. Marvin Williams had two points on 1-for-7 shooting but at least managed four rebounds and three blocks.

Batum will return to getting the 37.5 mpg he's received over the last month, in a big game with playoff implications. Batum can safely be inserted back into lineups.

Coach James Borrego thinks Nicolas Batum, who missed practice on Wednesday, will be okay after another day of rest.
The Hornets don't play again until Friday, so there is more than enough time for Batum to get ready to suit up.

Nicolas Batum has an eye exam scheduled today but he thinks he will be available when the Hornets play the Wizards on Friday.
Batum was a late scratch yesterday in a game where the Hornets were also missing Marvin Williams and Cody Zeller. The Frenchman put a nice stretch of games recently and his injury doesn’t seem quite serious but with Charlotte playing again on Friday we wouldn’t blame you if you were to drop him for immediate help.

Nicolas Batum (right eye abrasion) is out for Monday's tilt vs. Rockets, and he'll be replaced in the starting lineup by Dwayne Bacon.
It was a late change, and the Hornets now have three starters out. Bacon could be in line for some decent run, but the news came out too late to take advantage. Keep an eye on the situation for the Hornets next game. Though it's on Friday, so hopefully Batum is ready to roll.

Jeremy Lamb played 31 minutes off the bench and scored 19 points (three 3s) to go with 10 rebounds, four assists, three blocks and two steals in Friday’s win over the visiting Wizards.
This is Lamb’s eighth straight game coming off the bench and he continues to deliver. In fact, he’s been a a top-50 play in 9-cat coming off the bench compared which is better than he’s done for most of the season as a starter.

Nicolas Batum tallied 17 points, six boards, five assists, four 3-pointers and one block in 40 minutes of action on Friday against the Nets.
It only took Batum until the middle of February, but he's all warmed up now. He was a top-30 player over the last two weeks before this game, and continued his all-around play in this one. He should be owned everywhere and you can start him with confidence going forward.

Nicolas Batum was excellent for the Hornets on Wednesday, dropping 17 points (7-of-13 shooting), six rebounds, six assists, three triples, two steals and two blocks in a team-high 41 minutes.
Batum is officially back in form. It took a drastic lineup shakeup but he's finally found his comfort zone since sliding over to the shooting guard role. Batum has been a top-20 play over the last week and should be in for a strong finish to the season.

Nicolas Batum had an all-around useful night in a loss on Monday against the Warriors, providing 14 points, five rebounds, six assists, three steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 37 minutes.
Batum continues to round into form, as he's put up top-60 value over the past month. He's prone to a dud every so often, but you can feel confident in starting him at this point, especially if you need a little bit of everything.

Nicolas Batum put up 14 points, four rebounds, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in Saturday's home loss.
Batum put up 20-5-8 with five triples on Friday night against the Wizards, so the first two games of him returning to his natural shooting guard spot have certainly suited him well. He's been a pretty frustrating player to own this season but perhaps he can finish with a flourish now that the Hornets have shuffled the deck a bit.

Nicolas Batum had a rough go Monday against the Pacers with a 1-of-8 shooting performance, chipping in seven boards but just three assists and a steal.
He's been trending up as of late, but he's still prone to a dud every now and then. Hold for now, as he should continue to hold his top-100 value.

Nicolas Batum put up 14 points with two rebounds, five assists, two steals and two blocks on 6-of-13 shooting in 35 minutes against the Mavs on Wednesday.
He is sneaking inside top-100 value despite having a down year, so he is still a must-own in standard formats. Marvin Williams had an off-night in this one with just five points on 2-of-7 shooting with five rebounds in 26 minutes.
