PJ Washington & Terry Rozier Injury Updates Against Lakers on Tuesday
The Charlotte Hornets will likely be without their top-three scorers and four starters on Tuesday against the Los Angeles Lakers. PJ Washington will join team second-leading scorer Gordon Hayward and third-leading scorer LaMelo Ball on the sidelines.
Washington sprained his right ankle during Sunday's loss to the Atlanta Hawks and becomes yet another injured Hornets starter. Hayward will miss his fifth straight game with a foot sprain, while Ball's fractured wrist will keep him out for a 12th-straight game.
It looks like Charlotte's leading scorer Terry Rozier is headed in the same direction while dealing with left knee tendinitis. Rozier did play on Sunday, scoring 18 points but shot just 41.2% from the field. The veteran guard has struggled, shooting just 37.7% in April, so the knee could be one of those nagging injuries affecting his game. With so many injuries to key players, the door is wide open for under-the-radar guys to make an impact at FanDuel.
If Rozier doesn't suit up, Brad Wanamaker comes with a ton of value, costing just $4600, and the $6600 Devonte Graham should see a big productivity boost. With Washington out, Cody Zeller should start while Jalen McDaniels ($6000) and Miles Bridges ($6,200) will have bigger roles.
