Nicolas Batum likely out for the season with torn UCL

Nicolas Batum likely out for the season with torn UCL

If Batum is out for eight weeks, he'll miss roughly 20 regular season games, while a 12-week timeline would keep him out of roughly 35 games.

Charlotte Hornets guard/forward Nicolas Batum injured his elbow on Wednesday, and the injury "appears serious", according to the Charlotte Observer's Rick Bonnell. This comes as a major blow to a Charlotte Hornets team that was focused on making a deep playoff run this year.

Batum suffered the injury in the Hornets' preseason game on Wednesday night and had tests Thursday that confirmed the tear in the elbow.

Batum averaged 15 points, six rebounds, and six assists last season on subpar shooting numbers of 33 percent from downtown and 40 percent from the field.

Riverdale Creator Reveals Sabrina Spinoff Script Page
But some were less impressed with the spin-off's darker tone, with coolweirdkid saying: "Leave Sabrina the teenage witch alone". Sabrina's iconic show ran for seven years, from 1996, and was based on the Archie Comics series of the same name.

In his absence, the Hornets are likely going to one of Malik Monk, the team's rookie, or Jeremy Lamb to take a bigger role in the offense. Monk seems like the obvious option for Charlotte as he is the main backup, Coach Clifford's mentality is to make the players earn their minutes, and does not often start rookies.

While the French worldwide holds a unique value to the team as a jack of all trades at the small forward position, this could prove to be a key opportunity for rookie Malik Monk, who led all scorers with 19 points on Wednesday's outing.

For the last few years, Batum has been a key cog to the Hornets resurgence.
