Nicolas Batum was reportedly battling “excruciating” migraines that caused a “a scary period” for the Hornets forward.

Good news: Batum returned to play over the weekend.

“I was scared, worried,” Batum said Saturday after the Hornets guard scored eight points and grabbed 10 rebounds in his return, a 98-93 victory against the Washington Wizards at Spectrum Center. “I couldn’t think. I couldn’t eat or drink anything. It took me out of everything.”
