Description: Trail Blazers small forward Nicolas Batum led the team with 27 points in the Game 3 loss versus the Grizzlies in the Western Conference Quarterfinals on Saturday.
Insight: Batum shot 50 percent from both the field and from the 3-point line, hitting six 3-pointers. He also had six rebounds and four assists, but it was enough to help the Trail Blazers to its first victory in the series. Memphis leads, 3-0.

Description: Trail Blazers small forward Nicolas Batum is questionable for Friday's game against Phoenix due to a strained lower back.
Insight: Batum is a box score filler when healthy, averaging 9.4 ppg, 5.9 rpg, 4.8 apg, 1.1 spg. Dorell Wright would benefit the most if Batum can't run.
 
Hot3/16/2015 9:23:00 PM
Description: Trail Blazers small forward Nicolas Batum continued his strong play on Monday night.
Insight: Batum did shoot just 4-of-12 from the field, but that was his only blemish in the game. He finished with 12 points, 14 boards, five assists, two 3-pointers, one steal, one block, and two turnovers.
 
Hot3/6/2015 9:48:00 AM
Description: Trail Blazers small forward Nicolas Batum put up another solid effort Friday night.
Insight: Batun finished with 15 points, 12 rebounds and six assists. With Wes Matthews sidelined, Portland will likely look for Batum to pick up his offensive game.
 
Hot3/5/2015 9:19:00 AM
Description: Trail Blazers small forward Nicolas Batum was the star of overtime, dishing assists and scoring as Portland outlasted the Clippers 98-93.
Insight: Batun finished with 20 points, seven rebounds, eight assists, two blocks and a steal against just one turnover. He's a box score filler.
 
1/30/2015 11:40:00 AM
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.
 
1/12/2015 9:56:00 AM
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.
 
12/23/2014 2:28:00 PM
Description: Trail Blazers small forward Nicolas Batum will miss Tuesday's game against Oklahoma City due to a sprained right wrist.
Insight: Dorell Wright could see more time and could help a fantasy owners with three-point shots, but he limited in his help in other categories.
 
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.
 
11/17/2014 8:30:00 PM
Description: Portland small forward Nicolas Batum (knee) will not play Monday versus the Pelicans.
Insight: This was expected, and owners should consider him day-to-day.
 
11/17/2014 2:25:00 PM
Description: Portland small forward Nicolas Batum is hoping to return next Monday against the Pelicans, but is listed as questionable.
Insight: He did practice Sunday, but a more likely target for his return is the next game on Friday.
 
11/12/2014 3:08:00 PM
Description: Portland small forward Nicolas Batum is hoping to return next Monday against the Pelicans.
Insight: That means Batum will miss games on Wednesday and Saturday. He has a knee injury. Fantasy owners can take Batum out of their lineups for the week.
 
11/10/2014 3:29:00 PM
Description: Portland small forward Nicolas Batum will not play Tuesday, according to Blazers beat reporter Erik Gundersen.
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).
 
10/20/2014 5:00:00 PM
Description: Portland small forward Nicolas Batum should be considered an early-round pick for the upcoming fantasy basketball season.
Insight: Batum is notable for filling stat sheets, as he averaged 13.0 points per game, 7.5 rebounds per game, 5.1 assists per game, 0.9 steals per game, 0.7 blocks per game, while shooting 47 percent from the field, 36 percent from three-point land, and 80 percent from the free throw line last season. Batum should be off the board by the end of the second round.
