Hornets get some rare good injury news with P.J. Washington’s status

The Charlotte Hornets apparently avoided another major injury to a starter, with P.J. Washington listed as probable to play Tuesday versus the Los Angeles Lakers.

Center-forward Washington suffered a right ankle sprain in Sunday’s loss to the Atlanta Hawks. He left the game midway through the third quarter and didn’t return. The Hornets didn’t practice Monday in a span of three games in four days.

The 6-foot-7 Washington has started all 48 games he’s played this season. He would be particularly difficult to replace because he splits his 29 minutes per game between center and power forward.
