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

Hornets' Nicolas Batum reportedly out 8-12 weeks with torn ligament in left elbow

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.

Shelton Capital Management Cuts Holdings in Twenty-First Century Fox, Inc
Tom Sandell increased its stake in Moneygram Intl Inc (MGI) by 26.82% based on its latest 2017Q2 regulatory filing with the SEC. Amica Mutual accumulated 27,756 shares or 0.07% of the stock. 732,134 are held by Water Island Limited Liability Corporation.

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.
