PJ Washington recorded a team-high 26 points on 9-of-12 shooting with five rebounds, three assists, three 3s and four steals in a 110-107 win over the Pistons on Friday.
Washington is heating up again after dealing with a brief slump. There's a pattern forming here. Wait for another slump, then buy low. That's the play.

PJ Washington snapped out of his slump on Wednesday, contributing 17 points on 7-of-11 shooting with five rebounds and two blocks in 21 minutes.
Not a bad bounce-back game from Washington, who was already on the hot seat in fantasy due to his string of lackluster performances. He struggled with fouls early but made his 21 minutes on the floor count.

PJ Washington hardly made his presence felt in Monday's loss to the Heat, recording just eight points on 4-of-8 shooting with four rebounds and two steals.
Washington is in a slump. Will he snap out of it? Probably, yes. The question is "When?" For now, he can be dropped in standard leagues for a hot FA.

Miles Bridges caught fire on Friday, erupting for a career-high 31 points on 12-of-21 shooting with eight rebounds, three triples and three steals.
Bridges has not delivered to-date on his draft-day ADP. Tonight is a big step in the right direction. PJ Washington (seven points, seven rebounds, two assists, two blocks) has stolen some of his thunder, but it appears that Bridges' built up static value is still intact.

PJ Washington was beleaguered by fouls (5) on Wednesday night, limiting him to just 12 minutes on the floor, finishing with five points, four rebounds, one assist and one steal.
He's been down the last few games. Chalk it up to rookie growing pains. That's the price to pay for banking on youth. The team remains committed to his development, so he can play himself out of this slump. Consider this a buy-low window for Washington.

Marvin Williams played well off the bench against the Raptros on Monday, finishing his night with 14 points (4-of-5 shooting), four rebounds, three triples, two blocks and an assist in 24 minutes.
Williams has seen minutes in the mid to high 20's over his last three outings, and has shown that he has something left in the tank when given enough run. He saw extended run to night motsly because P.J Washington was in foul trouble, and now that Nicolas Batum is back in the fold it'll be tough for him to see enough minutes to matter in most settings. Just keep him in mind if minutes at the forward spots ever open up in Charlotte.

PJ Washington had a great overall game scoring 19 points with five rebounds, three assists, a steal and a block in Saturday's win over the Knicks.
Washington played 37 minutes for the Hornets and provided a steady hand in their win tonight, assisting for the win. He has shown that he is one of the more reliable options for the Hornets, in both real and fantasy life, as evident in the minutes that he is trusted to play. In fantasy, opportunity is everything and he is continuing to earn the opportunity to be on the court.

PJ Washington was quiet on Wednesday, ending with only five points (2-of-7 shooting), three rebounds, one assist and two blocks.
Washington has been a solid addition for the Hornets this year. Even in his quiet games like tonight, it's nice to see he can still add a couple of blocks to his line. There's no need to panic after tonight's game.

PJ Washington scored 15 points on 6-of-11 shooting with four rebounds in 37 minutes of action in a loss to the Sixers on Sunday.
Washington made three 3-pointers and added four steals to the box score. He has a unique skill set and has been the most reliable fantasy option on the Hornets thus far. He should be owned and started in all formats.

PJ Washington finished the night with 10 points after injuring his ankle in the third quarter of Saturday's 115-100 loss to the Pelicans.
Washington has been a nice surprise for the Hornets, providing a decent source of points and defense for the starting unit. He has been a bit injury prone to start his career, with several leg injuries, though fantasy owners should bank on his youth enabling speedier recovery times. His injury appeared to be relatively minor so owners should continue to roll with him into the next contest.

PJ Washington played 27 minutes in thursdsay's lopsided loss to the Celtics despite a leg contusion, finishing with just four points but pitching in with eight rebounds and five blocked shots.
Washington struggled mightily from the floor (1-for-8) but the blocked shots were a huge saving grace. There is heavy playing time available, especially with Nicolas Batum on the shelf and Washington could well maintain top-75 status if he can maintain almost four cash counters every night.

PJ Washington (leg contusion) will start on Thursday night.
Washington was listed as probable so this isn't a surprise. He's returning middle-round value so far so make sure he's in your lineups.

PJ Washington (leg contusion) is probable for Thursday's game against the Celtics.
It looks like the rookie from Kentucky will be able to suit up for the much-anticipated return of Kemba Walker to Charlotte. Washington has been impressive to start the season, playing 32 minutes and averaging 15.1 points, 6.1 rebounds and 1.1 steal with 2.0 3-pointers on 57 percent from the field, good for top 60-value in 9-cat leagues.
