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.
