Hornets’ Nicolas Batum tears ligament in right elbow


LOS ANGELES – Charlotte Hornets shooting guard Nicolas Batum will miss at least six to eight weeks after tearing a ligament in his right elbow, the NBA club said Thursday.

The French guard could miss even more playing time with the injury that occurred 34 seconds after the start of Wednesday’s preseason game against the Detroit Pistons.

Batum was clearly in pain as he left the court.
