Nicolas Batum managed five points (1-8 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), six rebounds and five assists across 34 minutes in Friday's 116-103 loss to the Bucks.
Batum, whose home country is France, drew the start in Friday's game against the Bucks. Despite drawing the start in his home country, Batum struggled to get anything going. He is not part of the team's long-term plans, and this one-game appears just to have been a nice opportunity for Batum to get some run in Paris. He is a deep-league stash at this point, and should not be owned in standard leagues. The Hornets next scheduled game is Tuesday, away against the Knicks.
