Batum Injures Ankle; May Not Return to Series


Charlotte Hornets swingman Nicolas Batum suffered a left ankle sprain in Wednesday night’s 115-103 loss to the Miami Heat in Game 2 of their first-round series.

“It looked bad when it happened,” (Al) Jefferson said. “Looking at his ankle now, it’s pretty bad.

“That’s part of the game. I feel like, me, personally, I don’t think he will be able to come back.”
