    Hornets' PJ Washington: Sees 32 minutes in preseason finale

    P.J. Washington amassed 12 points (4-7 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, and four assists in 32 minutes during Wednesday's 116-110 loss to the Pistons.Washington drew another start and paced the team in minutes while making solid contributions across multiple categories. Still, he finished the contest with two turnovers and five fouls, so it wasn't a perfect performance for the rookie forward. Washington is one of the more talented young prospects on the team, and so he should be expected to receive ample opportunities this year.

    Hornets' PJ Washington: Puts up 10 points in start

    P.J. Washington turned in 10 points (3-5 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five rebounds, three assists, four steals and two blocks across 32 minutes during the Charlotte Hornets' 100-87 preseason loss to the 76ers on Friday.As his final line indicates, Washington wasn't very involved on the offensive end, but he made good use of the attempts he put up. The 2019 first-round pick logged a team-high amount of minutes as the starting power forward, but he's likely to have just a modest allotment of playing time to open the season with Miles Bridges, Marvin Williams and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist all slotting in ahead of him on the depth chart.

    Hornets' PJ Washington: Fully healthy entering camp

    P.J. Washington (foot) is fully healthy as training camp approaches, Rick Bonnell of The Charlotte Observer reports.The swingman was held out of the Las Vegas Summer League in July while battling soreness in his foot, which stemmed from an injury he suffered back in March at Kentucky. The first-round pick clarified Monday night that he's medically cleared and anticipates being at full strength for the start of camp at the end of September. "I'm pretty much cleared to do everything," Washington said. "After summer league, it was about two weeks." The 6-7 Washington will likely spend time at both forward spots for the Charlotte Hornets this season, but GM Mitch Kupchak already implied after the draft that Washington could first get some seasoning with the team's G League affiliate in Greensboro. Chances are, Washington won't be an overly valuable fantasy asset in Year 1, though with Charlotte projected to be among the NBA's bottom-dwellers, he could see more opportunity later on, should the team shift toward a more youth-oriented rebuild.
