Batum and Kaman two-man game not the best example of team chemistry

#Blazers calling Aldridge, Batum and Kaman probable for tonight's game vs. Suns.

Erik Gundersen

Aldridge, Batum, Kaman all PROBABLE tonight vs. Phoenix.

Mike Richman

LaMarcus Aldridge, Nic Batum and Chris Kaman are all probable tonight vs. Phoenix.

Jake Fischer

Anyone else see Nic Batum in Trey Lyles?

Mike Richman

Nic Batum said he wanted to play but team doctors wouldn't let him. Spent game with heating pad after his back tightened up after warm ups.

Sean Meagher

7 points in 8 minutes no matter what his name is. RT @Mike Richman: Did the Jazz PA guy just say Dorell Batum?

Mike Richman

Did the Jazz PA guy just say Dorell Batum?

Erik Gundersen

LRT: having played ball with low back problems. Once you cool down, everything gets tight. Would be very surprised if Batum plays.

Sean Meagher

No Batum suited up and available if necessary, but that's quite a wrap on his lower back. http://t.co/Mz9l6LNgOL

David Locke

Getting word that Allen Crabbe starting in place of Nicolas Batum

Mike Richman

Aldridge and Batum are active and will start tonight.

David Locke

Blazers take the floor with Batum and Aldridge both in uniform going through warmups

Tony Jones

Aldridge and Nic Batum both listed with the Portland starters tonight....asterisks next to the names, denoting "probable)

Mike Richman

Terry Stotts says he doesn't know yet if Aldridge and Batum will play tonight.

Mike Richman

Correction on that last tweet. Chris Kaman is OUT tonight vs. Utah. Aldridge and Batum are questionable.

Mike Tokito

Aldridge and Batum now listed as questionable for #Blazers' game vs. Jazz. Usually means good chance they play. Kaman out.

Joe Freeman

Aldridge (left finger sprain) and Batum (low back pain) have been upgraded to questionable vs. Jazz. Kaman (right shoulder sprain) is out.

Erik Gundersen

Aldridge and Batum have been upgraded to questionable for tonight against Utah. Kaman is OUT.

Mike Richman

LaMarcus Aldridge (left index finger sprain) and Nic Batum (low back pain) updated to questionable tonight. Kaman (shoulder) still doubtful.

Mike Richman

GSW at POR out: GSW -- Livingston, Kuzmic; POR -- Aldridge, Batum, Kaman, Matthews.

Kerry Eggers

Crabbe is active RT @designershop63: @Kerry Eggers Is Allen Crabbe still with the Blazers? He usually starts for Batum. is he active tonight?

Kerry Eggers

No. Kaman says he may play Friday vs. Suns. I'd guess L.A. & Batum come back then too RT @EdgarSelcetti: @Kerry Eggers could play tomorrow?

Kerry Eggers

Terry Stotts says @LaMarcus Aldridge & @Nicolas Batum "most likely" will not play tonight vs. Warriors. @Chris Kaman will definitely not play

Erik Gundersen

Aldridge, Batum, Kaman all "most likely" will not play per Stotts
