Nicolas Batum merely has a bone contusion and no serious damage.

Batum will miss Wednesday night's game for Portland against the Charlotte Bobcats at the Rose Garden and is officially listed as day to day. He is expected to be reevaluated later this week.

Batum injured his knee in the closing seconds of the team's 93-89 Monday night loss to the Utah Jazz. During a pivotal play, Batum drove through the lane for a potential game-tying shot and twisted his left knee while trying to cut to the basket.

He immediately collapsed to the court and writhed around in pain, holding his left knee.
