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.

Washington played 37 minutes for the Hornets and provided a steady hand in their win tonight, assisting for the win.

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.

P.J. Washington had a much better shooting night on Monday, scoring 11 points on 4-of-8 shooting to go with seven rebounds, two steals and two 3-pointers.
Washington got off to a blistering start and has cooled off since, but should still be rostered in standard leagues. His minutes are safe and he should get better over time as most promising rookies do.

After his hot start to the season, PJ Washington had a lackluster performance on Sunday as he put up eight points and six rebounds on 2-of-7 shooting.
Washington is a top-80 fantasy player after this performance, which shows just how good his first two games were. He is a solid stretch-four that has a unique skill set. He can produce late-round value in standard leagues and should be picked up if he is sitting on your wire.
