Charlotte Hornets’ Nicolas Batum has said that people in France are celebrating his recent injury and are even taunting him on social media.
Batum will miss at least six to eight weeks with a torn ligament in his left elbow.
“I know [some] people in France are happy about it; that’s the sad part,” Batum said. “Really, for real. I got on stuff and people are happy, like I deserve it. … Trust me, I get those reactions on social media.”
