    On Monday, PJ Washington underwent successful surgery on the fifth finger of his right hand.

    The timetable is unclear, but he is expected to be fine after a period of rehab. Washington was off to a nice start in his rookie season before the injury. He has averaged 12.3 points and 5.3 rebounds. Marvin Williams should see an expanded role for now.

    PJ Washington (right finger fracture) will not play on Tuesday.

    This isn't surprising, with Washington's timeline expected to take him out through Christmas, if not slightly beyond. The Hornets went double-big last night, starting Cody Zeller next to Bismack Biyombo, and that could be a look we see more of. Marvin Williams, Miles Bridges and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist are the other main choices to soak up PF minutes.

    SG, Charlotte Hornets

    Nicolas Batum (left hand contusion) is being listed as questionable for Sunday's game versus the Pacers.

    Batum may be in line to see an increase in playing time with P.J. Washington expected to miss some time. If Batum sits this one out we should see a little more Dwayne Bacon and Malik Monk with Miles Bridges sliding up to play some four.

    P.J. Washington (broken finger) has been ruled out of Sunday's game versus the Pacers.

    The one comes out of nowhere as Washington played 38 minutes in the last game and looked to be fine. He could have picked the injury up during practice, but expect Cody Zeller, Bismack Biyombo and Marvin Williams to see the biggest uptick in minutes on Sunday versus a Pacers' team with a big frontcourt. In a regular matchup we will most likely see Miles Bridges slide over to the four. A timetable has not been given, but Washington is expected to be sidelined throughout December.

    P.J. Washington looked good in Friday's 83-73 win over the Bulls, recording 13 points on 6-of-17 shooting with 10 rebounds, two dimes, one steal and three blocks in a team-high 38 minutes.

    Marvin Williams (right knee soreness) was out in this game, so Washington had a few more minutes to snack on for value. Washington's role is officially carved in stone and is a safe long-term hold in standard leagues.

    P.J. Washington scored 13 points (4-for-6 shooting), grabbed six rebounds, drained two triples and swatted two blocks in Wednesday's win over the Nets.

    Washington started the season hot before falling into a small lull in November. He seems to be turning it on again and as long as he's healthy should have plenty of minutes in Charlotte.

    P.J. Washington (right ankle sprain) is being listed as available for Tuesday’s game against the Wizards.

    Washington looks to be past the ankle sprain that he picked up on Sunday and is good to go. Washington will have a longer leash and some extra minutes with Marvin Williams inactive for this game.

    PJ Washington (right ankle sprain) is probable for Tuesday's game against the Wizards.

    Washington should be able to feast against a terrible Washington defense, so just check back tomorrow for a final confirmation that he'll be good to go.

    PJ Washington needed just three made field goals (3-of-6 FG) on his way to 20 points, as he went 12-of-13 from the free-throw line, along with eight rebounds, three assists, two 3-pointers, one steal, two blocks and one turnover.

    This makes three games in a row where Washington brought plenty of goodies in the forms of 3-pointers, steals and blocks. The fantastic free-throw shooting really came out of nowhere.

  • Marvin Williams
    PF, Charlotte Hornets

    Marvin Williams (right knee soreness) has been ruled out of Sunday's game versus the Hornets.

    Williams was listed as probable yesterday, but it looks like the Hornets will be cautious with their veteran forward. PJ Washington will continue to handle to bulk of the power forward minutes.

    In Friday's home loss to the Nets, PJ Washington was able to muster 14 points, five rebounds, three assists, two blocks and two 3-pointers.

    Washington has predictably settled down after a great start to the season but tonight offers a glimpse at his stat set. He's returning top-120 value when you take a step back from the typical rookie ups and downs, and the Hornets have no reason to dial back on his minutes with the youth movement in full swing.

    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
    SF, Charlotte Hornets

    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.
