Hornets Injury Report: P.J. Washington Ruled Out, Terry Rozier Probable Wednesday vs Cavaliers
The Charlotte Hornets were without four of their usual starters Tuesday against the Los Angeles Lakers, and they will be shorthanded once again for Wednesday’s matchup against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Hornets Injury Report
LaMelo Ball and Gordon Hayward both remain out with long-term injuries, and P.J. Washington will miss his second straight game due to an ankle injury. Nate Darling has also been ruled out, and he was one of just nine players who saw the floor against the Cavs.
However, it does look like Terry Rozier will be able to make his return to the lineup. He’s currently listed as probable after sitting out yesterday due to a knee injury. His return will likely mean fewer minutes for Caleb Martin and Bradley Wanamaker, who combined to play 58.1 minutes against the Lakers.
Even with Rozier back in the lineup, we can still expect the Hornets frontcourt to provide some fantasy value.
Miles Bridges and Jalen McDaniels Fantasy
Jalen McDaniels and Miles Bridges both played at least 35.8 minutes yesterday, and both players should be looking at sizable workloads again tonight. McDaniels has been a particularly nice source of value recently, scoring at least 31.1 FanDuel points in three of his past four games.
The Hornets are currently listed as three-point home favorites vs. the Cavaliers on FanDuel Sportsbook.
