Trevor Booker (left ankle) is probable for Friday's matinee game with the Blazers.

We get a Friday game at noon EST and we should have more info on Booker at about 10:30 in the morning. He did not play on Wednesday despite what looked like a minor ankle issue. If he's back, that could mean Tyler Zeller moves from a Wednesday starter to out of the rotation. Jarrett Allen could still be in the mix, but it's not certain.

Wayne Selden Jr. (right quad) is out for Friday against the Nuggets.

The team is in no rush to bring him back and this quad injury has been an issue for over a month. Ben McLemore and Tyreke Evans are way ahead of Selden and he would need an injury to get minutes.
Nov 23 - 6:55 PM

Brandan Wright (groin) is out for Friday night against the Nuggets.

After his injury on Saturday, Wright will be missing his third game. There is no timetable for a return, but there hasn't been much information to suggest he'll be back in his next handful of games. Deyonta Davis is coming off a terrific 14-point game on Wednesday and could be a sneaky stream or DFS punt with 13-20 minutes.

Nicolas Batum (ulnar nerve contusion) traveled with the team to Cleveland and is listed as questionable for Friday.

This is good news that he's not staying behind for further evaluation. It's a very specific diagnosis for a nerve in his elbow and hopefully it's not affecting the feeling in his arm. Batum reportedly feels this new injury isn't as bad as his left elbow injury that kept him out for six weeks, which makes sense because it didn't look bad in the second quarter on Wednesday. If Batum can't go, Jeremy Lamb would be busy in the starting lineup. Expect Batum to be a game-time call for the 8:00 EST start.

Jonathan Isaac (ankle) is listed as out for Friday against the Celtics.

It's no surprise he's still out and he wasn't going through basketball activities as of Wednesday. Isaac doesn't have a target date to return, but he is more day-to-day than anything else. Aaron Gordon has seen a slight uptick in minutes while Marreese Speights has been his backup.

Willie Cauley-Stein said he hasn't been around the rim as much this year because it's part mental.

He said it had a lot to do with injuries in the past. Cauley-Stein said he's had "like 35 stitches" in his hand from hitting it on the rim, and his right hand isn't as strong as his left from injuries around the rim also factors into his decision making. "I should go get this, but I'm not messing with it," Cauley-Stein said about being careful around the rim. WCS had 44.9 percent of his shots come from within three feet last year, but that has plummeted to 30.9 percent this year. However, his recent four-game uptick has him feasting inside with 53.9 percent of his shots coming at the rim while also making just 1-of-13 on mid-range shots. Basically, WCS is obviously trending up following his 26-point Wednesday and should be owned in standard leagues.

Nicolas Batum (elbow) doesn't feel that his new left elbow contusion is as bad as the original injury, according to Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer.

On Wednesday, Batum looked to have banged his left elbow to the chest of Otto Porter and he did not return. This is the same elbow that caused him to miss six weeks from an injury on Oct. 4, so maybe that's why the team ruled him out at halftime. While we wait for more concrete information or if he's going to be re-evaulated, he is questionable for Friday. Jeremy Lamb had a big game on Wednesday with 24 points and he should be owned in all leagues until Batum gets the all clear.

The Hornets have listed Nicolas Batum (elbow) as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Cavaliers.

Game notes are never a sure thing and we don't even know if Batum has undergone any tests yet, but his owners can consider this good news for now. While we wait for more information, make sure Jeremy Lamb isn't sitting on the waiver wire.
