Hornets' PJ Washington: Scores 17 points in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Washington went for 17 points (7-17 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 0-2 FT), seven rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 36 minutes during Wednesday's 109-98 win at Miami.

Washington bounced back nicely from a two-point effort against the Hawks, and he has scored in double digits in seven of his last eight games now. The rookie out of Kentucky has been playing at a high level ever since the league resumed after the All-Star break -- he is averaging 14.6 points per game in his last 11 contests.

Hornets' PJ Washington: Scores 20 against Nuggets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Washington accumulated 20 points (6-15 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 5-6 FT), six rebounds, three assists and one steal in 32 minutes during Thursday's 114-112 loss to the Nuggets.

Washington scored 20 for the first time since Jan. 13, and he has now poured in 20-plus points six times through 55 games. He has been one of the team's best and most consistent players this season, as Washington has showcased an extremely versatile two-way skillset.

Hornets' PJ Washington: Scores 19, sinks five treys
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Washington pitched in 19 points (6-13 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 2-4 FT), four rebounds, three assists and one block in 35 minutes during Tuesday's 104-103 loss to the Spurs.

Washington has reached double figures in scoring in six of seven tilts since the All-Star break, with the lone exception being a nine-point effort in 25 minutes against the Pacers on Feb. 25. The 21-year-old rookie has earned 30-plus minutes in each of those other six matchups after the break, and Washington is likely to continue playing plenty of minutes down the stretch this season.

Hornets' PJ Washington: Scores 17 to go with full line
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Washington went for 17 points (6-11 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-5 FT), five rebounds, four assists, two steals and one block in 30 minutes during Thursday's 103-93 win over the Bulls.

Washington provided a bit of everything in this one while snapping a four-game streak of single-digit scoring. In fact, he equaled his scoring total from the last three games combined. Those who picked up Washington earlier in the year will have to hope that this is a sign that he's refreshed and revitalized following the All-Star break, and the 21-year-old rookie will try to build on this performance heading into Saturday's matchup versus the Nets.

Hornets' PJ Washington: Starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Washington will return to the starting five Saturday against the Mavericks, Bobby Karalla of the Mavericks' official site reports.

Washington came off the bench in his last game after missing the previous two with an ankle injury. In home games this season, he's averaging 11.6 points, 5.6 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.1 blocks in 29.6 minutes.

Hornets' PJ Washington: Logs 24 minutes versus Rockets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Washington (ankle) had eight points (4-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt), six rebounds and three assists in 24 minutes during Tuesday's 125-110 loss to the Rockets.

Washington returned to the rotation following a two-game absence with an ankle injury. He posted a modest stat line off the bench, with Cody Martin sliding into the starting five and logging 36 minutes. Still, Washington will likely reclaim the starting role eventually, and he'll have a few days to rest and recover in advance of Saturday's matchup versus the Mavericks.

Hornets' PJ Washington: Not starting but available Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Washington (ankle) isn't in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Rockets.

According to Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle, Washington will be available but will come off the bench for the first time this season.. Cody Martin receives the spot start in his place.

February 4, 2020 06:48 PM
Hornets' PJ Washington: Appears set to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Washington (ankle) will go through warmups for Tuesday's game against the Rockets.

Washington was unable to play Monday and was considered questionable to play Tuesday, but he now appears likely to suit up in Houston. The Hornets didn't officially announce the 21-year-old will be available, but it seems likely if he can avoid a pregame setback.

February 4, 2020 12:12 PM
Hornets' PJ Washington: Gets questionable tag for Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Hornets list Washington (ankle) as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Rockets.

After missing Saturday's 114-90 loss to the Spurs with a right ankle sprain, Washington was initially labeled as doubtful, then upgraded to questionable before being ruled out ahead of Monday's 112-100 loss to the Magic. He'll presumably have a better shot at gaining clearance for the second half of the back-to-back set, but it wouldn't be surprising if the Hornets erred on the side of caution with the rookie. After Tuesday's game, the Hornets will have three days off before they play again Saturday versus the Mavericks, so that contest may represent a more realistic target for Washington's return.

Hornets' PJ Washington: Unable to go Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Washington (ankle) will not play Monday against the Magic.

Washington was listed as doubtful as of Sunday night, but the Hornets shifted him up to questionable on Monday morning. In the end, Washington will be held out of action for a second straight game as he battles a sprained right ankle. Veteran Marvin Williams started in Washington's place on Saturday against the Spurs and may receive that opportunity again.

Hornets' PJ Washington: Upgraded to questionable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Washington (ankle) was able to participate in shootaround ahead of Monday's game against Orlando and has been upgraded to questionable.

While there's still a solid chance that Washington will be held out, he's clearly making progress in his recovery from a right ankle sprain. An official update later in the day should provide clarity on Washington's final status. In the event that he sits, Marvin Williams figures to make a second straight start.

Hornets' PJ Washington: Unlikely to play Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Washington (ankle) is doubtful for Monday's contest versus Orlando.

It appears as though the rookie will miss a second consecutive matchup, as Washington continues to recover from a right ankle sprain. Marvin Williams earned the start in place of Washington on Saturday and will presumably once again fill that role. Washington's next opportunity to return to the court will be Tuesday in Houston, which is Charlotte's second contest of the upcoming back-to-back.

Hornets' PJ Washington: Downgraded to out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Washington (ankle) has been downgraded to out for Saturday's game against the Spurs.

Though the team previously announced Washington would be starting, that's not the case. Marvin Williams will get the nod in his place.

February 1, 2020 08:52 PM
Hornets' PJ Washington: Playing Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Washington (ankle) will play Saturday against the Spurs.

As expected, Washington will take the court despite a sprained right ankle. In January, he averaged 11.3 points, 5.8 rebounds and 2.9 assists in 30.8 minutes.

February 1, 2020 07:08 PM
Hornets' PJ Washington: Upgraded to probable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Washington (ankle) has been upgraded to probable for Saturday's game against the Spurs.

Washington picked up an ankle sprain Thursday against the Wizards, but it doesn't appear that he'll wind up missing any time. He's averaged 12.3 points on 28.7 minutes over his last six games, though it's possible his role is reduced if he plays at less than 100 percent.

January 31, 2020 03:48 PM
Hornets' PJ Washington: Questionable with ankle sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Washington has a right ankle sprain and is questionable for Saturday's game against the Spurs.

The 21-year-old apparently picked up the ankle sprain during Thursday's loss to the Wizards, as he had 15 points, one rebound, one assist and one steal in 23 minutes. Marvin Williams likely will have an increased role Saturday should Washington be unable to play in San Antonio.

Hornets' PJ Washington: Marred by foul trouble
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Washington logged three points (1-5 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), and three assists in 20 minutes Friday, during Charlotte's 116-103 loss to the Bucks.

Washington picked up his fourth foul immediately after halftime and didn't attempt a shot until the fourth quarter. Washington had made 19-of-34 shots en route to 53 points over his prior three contests. The promising rookie will look to reestablish himself when the Knicks come to Charlotte on Tuesday.

Hornets' PJ Washington: Makes four threes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Washington had 19 points (7-12 FG, 4-8 3PT, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds and one assist in 35 minutes during Monday's 106-86 loss against the Magic.

Washington has scored 14 or more points -- while making multiple threes -- in each of his last three starts, but he is also adding 7.3 rebounds, 2.7 assists and a combined 2.0 steals/blocks per game during that three-game stretch. He has been solid across the board in his rookie year, averaging 12.6 points, 5.5 rebounds and a combined 1.8 steals/blocks while shooting 48.3 percent from the field and 42.1 percent from three-point range.

January 14, 2020 02:44 PM
Hornets' PJ Washington: Double-doubles with defensive stats
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Washington posted 20 points (6-15 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 5-5 FT), 11 rebounds, three assists, two steals and two blocks in 33 minutes Monday in the Hornets' 115-112 loss to the Trail Blazers.

After a pair of lackluster outings in Utah and Phoenix over the weekend, Washington bounced back swiftly in the third contest of Charlotte's four-game Western Conference swing. The 20 points marked his best output since Dec. 8, while the four combined steals and blocks were a nice sight after his production in the defensive categories had been a little lean in recent games. Washington's ability to contribute in multiple areas across the stat sheet helps to offset his volatile scoring, making him worth holding in 12-team and perhaps even 10-team fantasy leagues.

January 13, 2020 04:20 PM
Hornets' PJ Washington: Two straight duds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Washington posted four points (1-6 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), three rebounds, two assists and one steal in 24 minutes Sunday in the Hornets' 100-92 loss to the Suns.

Washington struggled to produce in either of the Hornets' weekend contests, netting a combined 11 points (on 3-for-11 shooting), five rebounds, three assists, two steals and no blocks in losses to the Suns and Jazz. The rookie first-round pick's spot in the starting five appears safe, but his overall upside is somewhat capped while he shares the floor with high-usage players in Devonte' Graham and Terry Rozier.
