Washington entered COVID-19 protocols at Team USA camp after Thursday's practice, Brian Windhorst of ESPN.com reports.
Washington, along with Miles Bridges and Immanuel Quickley, entered protocol Thursday. The exact reason that they're in protocol is unknown, whether it be due to a positive test or contact tracing.
Washington totaled seven points (3-13 FG, 1-5 3Pt), five rebounds, four steals and one assist in a 113-90 loss to the Clippers on Thursday.
Washington was very inefficient with his scoring opportunities but collected four steals for the second consecutive game. The forward has been phenomenal on the defensive end, recording multiple defensives stats in eight consecutive games. Over that stretch, Washington has averaged 16.9 points, 8.1 rebounds, 2.1 steals and 1.1 blocks per game.
Washington tallied 13 points (4-16 FG, 0-9 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 11 rebounds, five steals, four assists and three blocks in 40 minutes during Tuesday's 117-112 loss to the Nuggets.
The 22-year-old has been on a roll since missing a game back on May 4 due to personal reasons, averaging 18.5 points, 9.5 rebounds, 3.0 three-pointers, 2.2 steals and 1.3 blocks over his last four games. Washington has taken a step forward in virtually every category in his sophomore season, and he'll look to keep it going Thursday at home against the Clippers.
Washington had 14 points (6-16 FG, 2-6 3Pt), 12 rebounds and two assists in 36 minutes during Sunday's loss to the Pelicans.
Washington missed a game last week due to the birth of his child, but since then he's shown well, following up a pair of 20-plus-point efforts with a double-double in 36 minutes Sunday. Washington also added a steal and a block to his line, giving him seven steals over the last four contests.
Washington scored 23 points (8-14 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT) while adding nine rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 38 minutes during Friday's win over the Magic.
The second-year big just missed recording his ninth double-double of the season while scoring more than 20 points for the third straight game. Washington has been plenty productive since rejoining the starting lineup in late April, averaging 21.0 points, 6.4 boards, 3.5 threes, 2.1 assists, 1.1 steals and 0.9 blocks over his last eight contests.
Washington collected 24 points (9-14 FG, 6-8 3Pt), six rebounds, two assists and two steals in a 120-99 loss to the Bulls on Thursday.
Washington was the Hornets' leading scorer in his return to the lineup after missing just one contest for personal reasons. The forward has scored 16-plus points in nine of his last 10 games and 20-plus points six times over that span. Washington has averaged a team-high 19.6 points over that stretch and has also added 5.5 rebounds, 1.1 blocks and 1.0 steals per game.
Washington (personal) is not on the injury report for Thursday's game against the Bulls.
Washington was held out of Tuesday's game due to a personal matter, but it looks like he's on track to make his return to action Thursday. He'll likely step back into the starting lineup at center, sending Bismack Biyombo to the bench.
Washington will not play in Tuesday's game against Detroit due to personal reasons, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Not only will the Hornets be without Miles Bridges (COVID-19 protocols) for the next 10 to 14 days, but they also won't have the services of Washington on Tuesday. It's unclear why he's away from the team, but his absence should open the door for Bismack Biyombo, and perhaps Cody Zeller and/or Vernon Carey, to see more minutes at the five.
Washington tallied 21 points (9-13 FG, 3-6 3Pt), six rebounds and three steals in Sunday's 121-111 loss to the Heat.
Washington has rejoined the starting lineup in each of the last six games and has played at least 30 minutes in each of those appearances. The 22-year-old led the Hornets with 21 points Sunday and has now averaged 20.2 points and 6.0 rebounds in 35.7 minutes per game across his last six appearances.
Washington had 19 points (8-16 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block across 39 minutes in Wednesday's loss against the Celtics.
Washington had a dreadful night from three-point range, but that was the only blemish in another strong all-around performance from the second-year big man. The former Kentucky standout has scored at least 18 points in six of his last seven games since returning from a three-game absence earlier this month.
Washington accumulated 22 points (8-12 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 12 rebounds, five assists, one steal and one block in 38 minutes during Sunday's 125-104 win over the Celtics.
The 22-year-old has bounced back nicely since posting a two-point dud Thursday, averaging 23.5 points, 8.5 rebounds, 4.5 three-pointers, 1.0 steals and 1.0 blocks over his past two games. Washington should continue starting and playing 35 to 40 minutes the rest of the way for the eighth-seeded Hornets. He'll look to make it three efficient games in a row Tuesday at home against the Bucks.
Washington scored 25 points (9-18 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 2-3 FT) while adding five rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 37 minutes during Friday's win over the Cavaliers.
Three different Hornets led the team with 25 points each, with Washington being one of them in his return to the starting five. The second-year big has produced at least 23 points in three of four games since recovering from an ankle sprain, draining at least five threes in all three, and he should be a key part of the Hornets' offense moving forward.
Washington will start Friday's game against the Cavaliers, Sam Perley of the Hornets' official site reports.
Coach James Borrego is going small-ball, and he's starting Washington at center over Vernon Carey. In 48 starts this season, Washington has averaged 11.6 points, 6.4 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 1.3 blocks and 1.0 steals in 29.5 minutes.
Washington tallied 26 points (10-18 FG, 6-10 3Pt), three rebounds and one steal in 35 minutes during Tuesday's loss to the Knicks.
The 22-year-old has been on a roll since returning from a three-game absence due to a sprained right ankle, averaging 24.5 points, 5.5 rebounds, 5.5 three-pointers, 2.0 blocks and 1.0 steals over his last two games. Washington's scoring had been a roller coaster in his previous eight games before he went down with an injury, as he posted zero, five, eight, 13, three, 12, 18 and eight points. The second-year forward will look to build on Tuesday's impressive performance on Thursday on the road against the Bulls.
Washington (ankle) recorded 23 points (8-17 FG, 5-11 3Pt, 2-4 FT), eight rebounds, four blocks and a steal across 34 minutes off the bench in Sunday's win over Portland.
Though Charlotte eased Washington back in off the bench in his return from a three-game absence, he ended up seeing starter's minutes while center Vernon Carey played only eight minutes due to foul trouble. Washington looked healthy and effective during his time on the court, submitting his best all-around performance since erupting for a career-high 42 points on Feb. 28. Expect Washington move back into the starting five at either power forward or center for Tuesday's game in New York.
Washington isn't starting Sunday's game against the Trail Blazers.
Washington will be back on the court Sunday after he missed the last five games due to a right ankle sprain, but he'll come off the bench for the first time this season. Vernon Carey will serve as the Hornets' starting center once again Sunday.
Washington (ankle) is available for Sunday's game against the Trail Blazers, Rick Bonnell of The Charlotte Observer reports.
Washington had missed the last five games due to a right ankle sprain but will likely rejoin the starting lineup Sunday. He's averaged 10.8 points, 4.2 rebounds and 2.6 assists in 27.4 minutes per game in his last five appearances. It's not clear whether Washington will have any minutes restrictions during his first game back on the court.
Washington (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Trail Blazers.
Washington has missed the past three games due to a sprained right ankle, but it appears a return is imminent. Once he's back, he should rejoin the starting five. He's started every game he's appeared in this season, and since the start of March, he's averaged 9.9 points, 6.5 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.5 blocks in 29.7 minutes.
Washington (ankle) won't play Friday against the Nets.
As expected, Washington will miss a third straight game due to a sprained right ankle. Cody Zeller and Bismack Biyombo should continue seeing almost all the minutes at center. Jalen McDaniels should continue to see more action as well.
Washington (ankle) is doubtful for Friday's game against the Nets.
Washington has missed the last two games due to a right ankle sprain, and he's unlikely to return to the court Friday. If he's held out once again, Cody Zeller and Bismack Biyombo should see increased run for Charlotte.
