Charlotte Hornets forward Nicolas Batum was diagnosed with chronic tendinitis in his left Achilles and could miss multiple games, league sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Batum underwent an MRI exam Sunday, revealing the extent of the injury after leaving Saturday night’s loss to the New York Knicks with the injury.

Batum has been ruled out of the Hornets’ game against Philadelphia on Monday, and his return will be based upon his response to treatment on the Achilles, league sources said.

Batum is averaging 11.9 points, 5.5 assists and 4.9 rebounds a game for Charlotte this season.

Missouri sophomore Jontay Porter will miss the entire upcoming season after tearing his ACL and MCL on Sunday, the school announced.

Porter suffered the injuries during a closed scrimmage against Southern Illinois.

He is the younger brother of Michael Porter Jr., the former top recruit who missed the majority of his lone season at Missouri last year before being drafted in the first round of the NBA draft by the Denver Nuggets in June.

Jontay Porter, a 6-foot-11 power forward, averaged 9.9 points, 6.8 rebounds and 1.7 blocks last season and was expected to see a jump in production in 2018-19. He was named preseason second-team all-SEC last week.
