Nicolas Batum News
Free-agent forward Nicolas Batum is already getting attention moving toward July, with the Lakers, Bulls, Celtics, Suns, and Jazz rumored to be interested in acquiring his services. The veteran, who recently declined his $3.3 million player option, averaged 8.3 points, 4.3 boards, and 1.0 steals throughout 54 starts for the Clippers last year. While his former employer remains the favorite to sign him, his fantasy projections will be contingent on where he lands next. However, based on his play in 2021-22, he'll draw plenty of interest from managers in deep category formats, primarily due to his accurate shooting percentages and all-around abilities.
Los Angeles Clippers forward Nicolas Batum is expected to decline his player option for next season. The veteran forward appears ready to decline his $3.3 million option and head to free agency. He started 54 games with the Clippers last season, but has become more of a role player. Batum averaged 8.3 points, 4.3 rebounds, one steal, and 1.2 triples in 24.8 minutes per game. He's not in his prime anymore, but can still be a capable option in the NBA. It sounds like the Clippers have interest in bringing back Batum for next season. Regardless, it's unlikely Batum carries reliable fantasy value wherever he lands.
Los Angeles Clippers forwards Marcus Morris Sr. (knee) and Nicolas Batum (ankle) have been ruled out for Friday's game against the Milwaukee Bucks. Both players took part in the team's overtime loss to the Chicago Bulls on Thursday, despite the fact that both players carried injury designations going into the contest. It's no surprise to see the two veterans receiving the day off after they logged nearly 40 minutes each on Thursday. The Clippers will be extremely short-handed on Friday as Paul George (elbow) and Reggie Jackson (rest) are resting as well. Robert Covington and Isaiah Hartenstein will help make up for the absence of Morris and Batum while Terance Mann, Luke Kennard and Amir Coffey will lead the backcourt.
Los Angeles Clippers forwards Marcus Morris Sr. (knee) and Nicolas Batum (ankle) are both active and part of the starting lineup for Thursday night's game against the Chicago Bulls. Both players had been listed as questionable for the game earlier in the day. They will join Reggie Jackson, Paul George and Ivica Zubac in the starting lineup. Morris has been hit-or-miss from a fantasy standpoint over the past month. He has a total of just five points over his last two games, but he's topped 20 points on three occasions in March, including a 31-point outburst on March 13. Batum, meanwhile, has been logging 24.7 minutes per game in March, but hasn't been delivering much from a statistical standpoint apart from his 1.5 three-pointers per game.
