Nic Batum has yet to play a regular-season game this season, but Sunday his Charlotte Hornets teammates got a long look at what they’ve missed.

For the first time since tearing a ligament in his left elbow Oct. 4, Batum went full-court 5-on-5 scrimmage in practice. All went well, and if there is no setback, shooting guard Batum should play in Wednesday’s nationally televised home game against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

“There were a lot of smiles out there, to see him back in a uniform,” forward Marvin Williams said. “I bet he got an assist to everybody he played with today. There were a couple of times when he hit me wide-open and I wasn’t expecting the ball.

“He kind of whispered to me on the way back (up the court), ‘Have your antenna out.’”

Batum is a key element in the Hornets’ ball-movement. Last season he averaged 15.1 points, 5.9 assists and 6.2 rebounds. He takes some playmaking responsibility off point guard Kemba Walker.
