Batum has suffered through a challenging season and a lot of issues could stem to this wrist issue , which he aggravated again Thursday. He doesn't know how long he will be out or if he will be able to play on the upcoming four-game road trip. Allan Crabbe will likely draw another start, with Dorell Wright and C.J. McCollum also getting a bump in their production.

Batum doesn't know if he'll be able to play on the Trial Blazers' four-game road trip that starts Monday against the Nets, the Oregonian reports.

Batum announced Saturday that he tore a ligament in his wrist back on Dec. 17 when he suffered the original injury. He tried to play through the injury but kept aggravating it. No timetable or details about the treatment Batum is receiving have been released, so this might turn into a day-to-day parade for a week or more. Allen Crabbe started the first half in place of Batum on Saturday, but Crabbe was then replaced in the starting lineup by Will Barton for the second half. It's anyone's guess who will have more value with Batum sidelined.

Batum (wrist) will not play Saturday, the Trail Blazers' official site reports.

Batum played just 22 minutes in Thursday's game before leaving as a result of the injury. He's struggled most of the season while trying to play through all of his maladies. Batum holders may look back on this time off as a boon to Batum's value if he ends up producing better the rest of the season. Dorell Wright appears to be the obvious choice to replace Batum in the starting lineup.

Batum left Thursday's game against the Celtics in the third quarter with a right wrist injury and will not return.

Batum will leave the Trail Blazers even more shorthanded Thursday as LaMarcus Aldridge (thumb) has been ruled out for six-to-eight weeks. A wrist sprain likely won't cost him much time, but he will miss at least the remainder of Thursday's contest. His next chance to return will come Saturday against the Wizards.

Batum's points and three-pointers made were both a season high as he picked up his offensive game with LaMarcus Aldridge out with a thumb injury. This is the type of line owners have been anticipating since draft day. Enjoy the moment and hope this can spark Batum for a big second half of the season.

Batum said after Monday's win against the Kings that his poor shooting this season is a result of stiffness in his right wrist, The Oregonian reports.

Further clarifying the situation, Batum stated that he's unable to bring his right wrist all the way back, which is causing his shots to veer to the right. The career 45-percent shooter has stumbled through the first half of the season, knocking down 39 percent from the floor en route to his lowest scoring output (8.9 points per game) since his rookie campaign in 2008-09. He won't consider taking time off, though, after the Blazers' frontcourt suffered another hit Monday. With All-Star forward LaMarcus Aldridge now nursing a left thumb injury, Batum will focus on fixing his shot, while providing his usual brand of intangibles (distributing, rebounding, and defense).
