Charlotte Hornets: Nic Batum to miss 2-3 months with elbow injury

Hornets' Nicolas Batum out at least 6-8 weeks with elbow injury

That lasted all but one week into the preseason. That means that Batum could return to the court anywhere between the beginning of December and into January.

Batum suffered the injury in the first quarter of Wednesday's exhibition game and a subsequent MRI has revealed a torn ligament.

It frees the weapon to slide back and forth rapidly, harnessing the energy from the kickback shooters feel when the weapon fires. But it's not yet clear whether, having opened the door to cracking down on weapons, Republicans will actually walk through it.

The Hornets forward is expected to miss at least six to eight weeks with a torn ligament in his left elbow, the team announced Thursday. Batum is expected to receive second opinions soon to determine whether he will undergo surgery, league sources said. Batum's playmaking on offense and versatility on both ends of the floor will be hard to replace, though, and that's a lot of pressure for the 19-year-old out of Kentucky. He, along with Kemba Walker, have been at the center of the Hornets success.

Last year, he logged a single-season career-high 15.1 points per game and added 6.2 rebounds, 5.9 assists and 1.1 steals a night.

The depth chart for the Hornets was set, with the starter at SG being Batum, then Monk coming first off the bench, followed by SG/SF Jeremy Lamb for extra backup. Coach Clifford will have a tough task ahead of him, choosing whether to start Monk in the lineup or distribute the minutes more, allowing both to get a considerable amount of minutes.
