Description: Trail Blazers small forward Nicolas Batum, a game-time decision on Wednesday, is not on the Portland injury report for Friday.
Insight: That's a great sign. He didn't score much in Wednesday's game (7 points), but he did pull down four rebounds, dish out seven assists, grab two steals and block a shot.
 
1/28/2015 6:03:00 PM
Description: Trail Blazers small forward Nicolas Batum is a game-time decision on Wednesday versus the Cavaliers.
Insight: Batum was questionable on Monday in a game that was postponed due to weather. If does not play, there are several player who will fill in, so none of them are fantasy worthy.
 
1/27/2015 4:17:00 PM
Description: Trail Blazers small forward Nicolas Batum said that he is mostly pain-free, after putting up some shots in Tuesday's practice.
Insight: He is still questionable for Wednesday's game, but Batum is trending in the right direction. Stay tuned.
 
1/23/2015 8:29:00 PM
Description: Trail Blazers small forward Nicolas Batum is out for Saturday's game versus the Wizards.
Insight: This is no surprise as Batum is still dealing with his wrist injury. There is no one player that will fill the void left by Batum, so fantasy owners will have to look outside of Portland to find a fantasy replacement for Saturday.
 
1/23/2015 11:38:00 AM
Description: Trail Blazers small forward Nicolas Batum is questionable for Saturday's game against Washington due to a sprained right wrist.
Insight: Just when he appeared ready to bust out, particularly with LaMarcus Aldridge sidelined for up to two months, Batum hit's a speed bump. After scoring 27 on Wednesday, Batum shot 0-for-6 from the field Thursday and was held scoreless in 22 minutes against Boston.
 
1/22/2015 9:22:00 AM
Description: Trail Blazers small forward Nicolas Batum led Portland with 27 points in the loss to Phoenix on Wednesday.
Insight: Batum sunk an incredible six 3-pointers and grabbed 10 rebounds. He also had five assists and a block. As long as LaMarcus Aldridge is out, Batum has potential to have games like this, but he will likely not make six 3-pointers in a game again. Plus, once Aldridge returns, Batum returns to a much small fantasy contributor.

Description: Trail Blazers small forward Nicolas Batum is obviously over his sprained right wrist and back to being a multi-category contributor.
Insight: Batum posted 11 points, his first double-digit effort in four games, along with nine rebounds and six assists. The only upsetting part of his game is that even Chris Kaman is getting more shot attempts than Batum. We like it better when he's the fourth option, not the fifth.

Description: Trail Blazers small forward Nicolas Batum will miss Tuesday's game against Oklahoma City due to a sprained right wrist.

12/8/2014 2:38:00 PM
Description: Trail Blazers small forward Nicolas Batum twisted and ankle Sunday, but played through it.
Insight: As long as it doesn't swell up he should be good to go. Batum missed two weeks due to a knee bruise earlier this season.. His numbers are significantly down this season, but if he can get healthy he's capable of being a solid fantasy contributor in multiple categories.
 
11/21/2014 9:02:00 PM
Description: Trail Blazers small forward Nicolas Batum will start on Friday against the Bulls.
Insight: Batum returns after missing two weeks due to a knee bruise. He may have his minutes limited on Friday, but because he is such a big part of the Portland offense, he is still worth starting.

Insight: Batum is dealing with a right knee contusion. His scoring is significantly down from last season. He's averaging just 9.0 ppg after a 13.0 ppg campaign, but he's still rebounding well (7.7) and dishing assists (5.7).

Batum should be off the board by the end of the second round.

Description: Portland small forward Nic Batum registered 21 points, nine rebounds and two assists Thursday in a loss to San Antonio.
Insight: That's more points than Batum had in his previous two games combined (16). Batum, an average three-point shooter at best, made 3-of-5 from that distance on Thursday. The 44 minutes he logged were his most since playing 45 against Houston in Game 4 of the first round.

3/8/2014 4:41:00 PM
Description: Portland small forward Nic Batum broke his nose during Friday's game, according to csnnw.com's Chris Hayes.
Insight: Portland is seeking a protective covering for Batum's face in advance of Sunday's game against the Rockets, Batum's agent said. He was able to play through the injury Friday but now that the Trail Blazers know his nose is broken they won't put him on the court without a mask.

Description: Portland small forward Nic Batum was all over the glass Saturday in a win over Denver.
Insight: Batum's 16 rebounds were a career-high. Unfortunately, he only shot 3-of-10 from the field for nine points. Batum is one of just six players averaging at least ten points, five rebounds and five assists this season. Michael Carter-Williams, Kevin Durant, Gordon Hayward, LeBron James and Lance Stephenson are the others.
