G - CHA
Nic Batum didn’t see the court in Tuesday’s 125-110 loss to the Rockets.
Batum has failed to log any minutes over the Hornets’ last four games, and his absence has coincided with quality play from both Miles Bridges and Willy Hernangomez. Batum is unlikely to provide much fantasy value the rest of the way.
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.
In Wednesday's 100-86 loss to the Nuggets, Nicolas Batum scored zero points (0-4 FG, 0-2 3PT), grabbed seven boards, and dished out seven assists in 21 minutes on the floor.
Coming off of the bench for the Hornets, Batum didn't score a single point in his latest contest despite ending up with a decent number or rebounds and assists. He's still not worth an add in any fantasy league.
Nicolas Batum (DNP-Coach's Decision) did not see the court in Sunday's 117-104 loss to the Grizzlies.
After averaging 26 minutes in his previous two games, Batum did not play in Sunday's loss. He is averaging career-lows across the board and has had a horrific start to the 2019-2020 campaign. Batum is only worth a roster spot in deep-league formats. The Hornets next scheduled game is Tuesday, away against the Celtics.
Nicolas Batum managed six points (2-4 FG, 1-2 3PT, 1-1 FT), three rebounds, two assists and one steal across 22 minutes in Sunday's 119-93 loss to the Celtics.
Batum has scored single digits in eight consecutive games. He has struggled most of the season, averaging 3.6 points, 4.1 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.7 triples across 16 games this year. Batum is a hold in deep-league formats. The Hornets next scheduled game is Friday, home against the Thunder.
