Hornets forward Nicolas Batum has been ruled out for Saturday night’s Game 3 of their first-round series against the Miami Heat with a sprained left foot. Miami leads the best-of-seven series 2-0, with the games shifting to Charlotte.
Batum underwent an MRI on Thursday. The team says Batum will continue to receive treatment and his status will be updated before Game 4 on Monday night. Batum sustained the injury in the fourth quarter of Charlotte’s Game 2 loss Wednesday night.
