What's buzzing on Yahoo Sports:

Nicolas Batum: (Back) Likely Active Thursday

Update: Batum (back) will likely play Thursday, CSN Northwest reports.

Recommendation: Batum's back is probably night quite 100 percent, but it looks like he's feeling well enough to give it a go Thursday night. The Blazers are unlikely to have Wesley Matthews (hip) available, which may force Batum to absorb more minutes than coach Terry Stotts might have hoped.
