News: Batum has now not made a three in three games, scoring just six points (3-11 FG, 0-5 3Pt) in a loss to the Grizzlies on Friday. Impact: Batum is now a combined 0-for-13 in his past three games from beyond the arc, which is uncharacteristic for a guy who is a career 36.7 percent shooter from three. The 25-year-old also had the worst plus/minus of anyone on the Trail Blazers, finishing -16 in 35 minutes. Batum certainly isn't in danger of losing any playing time given his track record, but owners have to be frustrated with his struggles from deep.(RotoWire, )

News: Batum took his game another step further, following a knee injury that kept him on the sidelines. He ended his night with 12 points (5-11 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 0-0 FT), five rebounds, three assists, and a steal in 32 minutes. Impact: Batum will need a few games under him before he hits the form we all know he can produce at. Give him some time to get his game back together, although it looks like that should come sooner, rather than later.(RotoWire, )

News: Batum (knee) returned from his injury Friday but only spent 21 minutes on the court and put up nine points (4-6 FG, 1-2 3Pt), three rebounds, one assist, and one steal. Impact: Batum had been sidelined for four-straight games before he made his comeback Friday. The Trail Blazers play the Celtics on Sunday and Batum will likely be eased back into action once again, although he didn't appear to suffer any setbacks Friday.(RotoWire, )

News: Batum (knee) will start Friday's game, but may not play his usual minutes, Blazers digital reporter Casey Holdahl reports. Impact: He probably won't be a good option in daily leagues Friday night, but it's an encouraging sign that he will be able to play through the ailment for now.(RotoWire, )
Thu. Nov 20, 2014
News: Batum (knee) was seen at practice without a brace, Erik Gundersen of The Columbian reports. Impact: This news offers further credence that Batum is on track to return Friday against the Bulls after missing the previous four contests.(RotoWire, )

News: Batum (knee) went through practice Wednesday, Blazers digital reporter Casey Holdahl reports. Impact: He remains on track to return for Friday's game against the Bulls after missing the past four games with a knee injury.(RotoWire, )

News: Batum (knee) is on pace to return Friday against the Bulls, The Oregonian reports. Impact: Batum has missed the last four games with a knee contusion but said he could have played limited minutes Monday, had there been the need. The forward underwent two Platelet Rich Plasma treatments early last week in an effort to speed up the recovery process, and he's now on track to play Friday against the Bulls. The Blazers were off Tuesday, and Batum will test out the knee in practices Wednesday and Thursday with the expectation that team doctors will clear him for Friday's contest.(RotoWire, )

News: Batum (knee) has been ruled out for Monday's contest versus the Pelicans, The Oregonian reports. Impact: Batum's fourth consecutive absence as a result of a right knee contusion has come to pass, which likely affords Allen Crabbe yet another start at small forward. Meanwhile, Batum was able to take part in practice Sunday, and with three days of rest on the horizon, he could achieve active status for the Blazers' next tilt Friday against the Bulls.(RotoWire, )
Nov 16, 2014
News: Batum (knee) is doubtful for Monday's game against the Pelicans despite practicing Sunday, The Oregonian reports. Impact: Batum has missed the last three games with a right knee contusion and it seems like he's in line to miss a fourth. There's still an outside shot that he'll be able to take the court, although Allen Crabbe is likely to start his fourth-straight game in place of Batum.(RotoWire, )

News: Batum (knee) won't play in Saturday's game, Blazers' digital reporter Casey Holdahl reports. Impact: He wasn't expected to play Saturday and will miss his third game in a row. After running and shooting during Friday's practice, the hope is that Batum will be able to return for Monday's game, making him a potential play next week in weekly leagues. Allen Crabbe has been starting in his place, but the Blazers have been favoring a smaller lineup later in games, and C.J. McCollum and Steve Blake have seen a lot of time at shooting guard with Wesley Matthews moving to small forward.(RotoWire, )

News: Batum (knee) was at practice running and shooting Friday, and hopes to return Monday against the Pelicans, CSN Northwest reports. Impact: Batum suffered the injury in the Blazers' game on Sunday, and has now missed two games in a row. He'll most likely miss Saturday's game against the Nets as well, but is targeting Monday for his return. Allen Crabbe should continue to take his spot in the starting lineup until Batum is able to play.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Nov 12, 2014
News: Batum was back on the floor in Friday's 105-87 rout of Chicago after missing four games. Impact: Batum, who hadn't played since Nov. 9, had nine points on 4-of-6 shooting in his return from a bruised right knee.(STATS, 11:14pm)
