The Hornets – 3.5 games and three teams out – are fading in the playoff race.
Now comes potentially even worse news for Charlotte forward Nicolas Batum.
Charlotte Hornets forward Nicolas Batum is scheduled to undergo a CT scan on his brain Wednesday as he deals with extreme migraine headaches, a league source tells ESPN.
The source said the migraines were described as “excruciating” and that it’s “a scary period” for Batum, a nine-year veteran.
Batum signed a five-year, $120 million contract last summer. So, at least he has some financial security.
But, with a brain issue, there are bigger concerns.
