Nicolas Batum: (Back) Highly Questionable for Monday

Rotowire.com
Update: Batum (back) is "hoping to be back" for Thursday's game against San Antonio, but he is highly questionable Monday against Toronto, the Blazer's Edge reports.

Recommendation: Following Saturday's loss to Sacramento, in which he was limited to five points in 17 minutes, Batum described his situation as follows: "I don't know what's going to happen for the Toronto game. I'm hoping to be back for San Antonio." He will likely continue to receive chiropractic treatments, as he did three times in the days leading into Saturday's contest, but it appears more than likely that he'll rest, recuperate, and aim to take the court Thursday. Consider Batum day-to-day for the time being.
