  • Mavericks' P.J. Washington: Enters starting five

    Washington is starting Monday's game against the Wizards, Mark Followill of Bally Sports Southwest reports.

    Washington came off the bench in his Dallas debut, and he's now set to make his first start since joining his new squad. He finished with 14 points, five boards, one assist and one steal in 24 minutes Saturday, so he'll likely shoulder around 30 minutes Monday now that he's better acclimated.

  • Mavericks' P.J. Washington: Serviceable performance Saturday

    Washington accumulated 14 points (6-10 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds, one assist and one steal over 24 minutes during Saturday's 146-111 victory over the Thunder.

    Washington came off the bench in his Dallas debut, popping for 14 points on 6-of-10 shooting. Although he is unlikely to see as much playing time following the trade, he should still be on the floor enough to warrant attention in most fantasy formats. Given he played 24 minutes right out of the gate, managers shouldn't be surprised if he nudges 30 minutes per night moving forward.

  • Mavericks' P.J. Washington: Set to debut for new team

    Washington (recently traded) is available for Saturday's game versus the Thunder, Grant Afseth of SI.com reports.

    Washington was traded from the Hornets to the Mavericks on Thursday. While he sat out against the Knicks, the 25-year-old forward will likely make his Dallas debut Saturday. Washington is expected to enter the starting lineup.

  • Mavericks' P.J. Washington: Coming off bench in debut

    Washington isn't in the starting lineup for Saturday's game versus the Rockets, Grant Afseth of SI.com reports.

    Washington is set to make his Mavericks debut Saturday against the Rockets. However, Washington will likely be eased into the rotation.

  • Mavericks' P.J. Washington: Dealt to Dallas

    The Hornets are finalizing a trade to send Washington to the Mavericks in exchange for Grant Williams, Seth Curry and a first-round pick, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    After starting in all 73 appearances for Charlotte in 2022-23, Washington has started just 17 out of 44 games for the Hornets this season. In 2023-24, he is averaging 13.6 points, 5.3 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 29.2 minutes. While Washington's 44.6/32.4/71.3 shooting splits aren't stellar, he will likely start in Dallas' frontcourt and provide another scoring option to support Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving.

  • Hornets' P.J. Washington: Drops 22 against Pacers

    Washington amassed 22 points (9-16 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 3-5 FT), nine rebounds, two assists, one block and two steals in 32 minutes off the bench during Sunday's 115-99 loss to Indiana.

    It's the third time in the last five games Washington has delivered more than 20 points. Over the last 10 contests, the fifth-year forward has played 30.9 minutes a game while bouncing between the bench and the starting five, averaging 17.7 points, 5.1 boards, 2.3 threes, 1.9 assists, 0.9 steals and 0.8 blocks over that stretch while shooting 54.8 percent from the floor and 41.1 percent from beyond the arc.

  • Hornets' P.J. Washington: One-man second unit Wednesday

    Washington ended with 26 points (10-17 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 3-4 FT), eight rebounds, one assist and one block across 36 minutes off the bench during Wednesday's 117-110 loss to Chicago.

    The fifth-year forward's strong numbers from the second unit look even better considering that the rest of the Charlotte bench combined for only 11 points and seven boards. Washington has filled a variety of roles of late, starting four of the last eight games, but that deployment seems to be agreeing with him -- he's averaging 18.8 points, 4.5 rebounds, 2.8 threes, 2.0 assists and 0.9 blocks over that stretch while shooting 57.6 percent from the floor and 46.8 percent (22-for-47) from long distance in 31.4 minutes a contest.

  • Hornets' P.J. Washington: Back to bench

    Washington won't start Wednesday's game against the Bulls, Sam Perley of the Hornets' official site reports.

    The Hornets went big against the Knicks on Monday, with Washington, Miles Bridges, Nick Richards, Brandon Miller and Cody Martin starting. However, they'll roll out a more traditional lineup Wednesday, with Bryce McGowens replacing Washington. The latter should still handle a sizable role off the bench, as he's averaged 29.7 minutes over his last nine appearances (four starts).

  • Hornets' P.J. Washington: Will start Monday

    Washington will start Monday's game against the Knicks, Sam Perley of the Hornets' official site reports.

    Washington will replace Ish Smith in the starting lineup, with LaMelo Ball (ankle) still out. Washington is deserving of a starting spot after exploding for a season-high 43 points Saturday, but it's unclear how a frontcourt of Washington, Miles Bridges and Nick Richards will work for spacing purposes. Across 16 starts this season, Washington has averaged 14.6 points, 5.4 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.3 steals-plus-blocks in 32.2 minutes per game.

  • Hornets' P.J. Washington: Explodes for season-high 43 points

    Washington recorded 43 points (17-22 FG, 7-9 3Pt, 2-3 FT), two rebounds, three assists and two steals across 36 minutes during Saturday's 134-122 loss to Utah.

    Washington was a man on a mission Saturday, going off to the tune of 43 points. Given he had scored more than 20 points only three times all season before Saturday, it's safe to assume this was more of an outlier than what to expect moving forward. He is someone who should be rostered in most formats, at least while the Hornets are without a few key players, but this could also be viewed as a possible sell-high opportunity.

  • Hornets' P.J. Washington: Productive off bench Wednesday

    Washington had 12 points (4-6 FG, 4-6 3Pt), six rebounds, five assists, one block and one steal across 28 minutes off the bench during Wednesday's 113-106 loss to the Pistons.

    After starting the prior three games with Nick Richards sidelined by an ankle injury, Washington moved back to the second unit and supplied a solid all-around performance. The 25-year-old forward missed three games himself earlier in the month with a foot issue, but since returning he's seen at least 24 minutes in six straight contests regardless of his role, averaging 10.8 points, 5.5 boards, 2.0 threes, 1.8 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.7 blocks while shooting 50.0 percent from the floor and 44.4 percent (12-for-27) from long distance.

  • Hornets' P.J. Washington: Returns to bench

    Washington isn't in the starting five for Wednesday's game versus the Pistons.

    Nick Richards will replace P.J. Washington in the starting lineup Wednesday after missing the previous three games with an ankle injury. Washington is averaging 10.7 points, 5.4 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 24.7 minutes across his last 10 appearances coming off the bench.

  • Hornets' P.J. Washington: Moves into starting linueup

    Washington will start Friday's game against the Spurs.

    With Mark Williams (back) and Nick Richards (ankle) sidelined, the Hornets will go small with Miles Bridges and Washington in the frontcourt. Over his previous 13 starts this season, Washington has averaged 14.8 points, 5.5 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.3 steals-plus-blocks in 32.9 minutes per game.

  • Hornets' P.J. Washington: Limited production in return

    Washington (foot) tallied five points (2-7 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 0-2 FT), six rebounds, one assist and one steal across 28 minutes in Sunday's 104-87 loss to the Heat.

    Cleared return to action after a three-game absence due to a right foot sprain, Washington served as the Hornets' top big man off the bench, but he wasn't able to get much going during his time on the court. Washington will likely continue to pick up minutes behind both Miles Bridges and Nick Richards in the frontcourt in the short term, though his path to playing time at center will likely become blocked once Mark Williams (back) makes his return from an extended absence.

  • Hornets' P.J. Washington: Upgraded to available

    Washington (foot) is available for Sunday's game against Miami.

    Surprisingly, Washington has been upgraded from doubtful to available and will make his first appearance since Jan. 5. Given the three-game absence, Washington may face a minute restriction Sunday, but he should still be one of the top forwards off Charlotte's bench. Over his last eight appearances before the injury, Washington averaged 13.8 points, 5.9 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.4 steals in 28.5 minutes per game.

  • Hornets' P.J. Washington: Confirmed out Friday

    Washington (foot) will not play in Friday's game against the Spurs.

    No surprises here, as Washington was considered doubtful before this update. Washington should be considered questionable at best for Sunday's game against Miami, as he's yet to return to practice.
