Mason Plumlee News
Charlotte Hornets center Mason Plumlee (calf) was able to take part in Friday's practice. He is on track to play in Sunday's game against the Atlanta Hawks after missing the last four games. P.J. Washington has been playing well at center lately, but he should lose minutes and value with the return of Washington. It's uncertain if Plumlee will return as the starting center or if the Hornets will stick with Washington. Obviously, Washington wouldn't have as much value off the bench. Plumlee is a better rebounder and defender, so the organization might continue starting him once he's ready to return.
Charlotte Hornets center Mason Plumlee (calf) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against Milwaukee due to a strained right calf. Plumlee's absence will mark his fourth in a row, which paves the way for P.J. Washington to get a larger allotment of run as a stretch five. While Nick Richards started at center Monday, he logged just seven minutes in a brief stint and is unlikely on the DFS radar. Even when healthy, the Hornets have begun to cap Plumlee's run time on the floor, which stunts his fantasy viability. His next chance to suit up comes Sunday vs. the Hawks.
Charlotte Hornets center Mason Plumlee (calf) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Chicago Bulls. This marks the third game in a row that Plumlee has missed due to a left calf strain. P.J. Washington should remain in the starting five, while Plumlee is out. Normally, Washington isn't the best fantasy option, but has played much better lately. Fantasy managers should check the waiver wire and see if Washington is available. He is worth rostering in the short term while Plumlee sits out.
Charlotte Hornets center Mason Plumlee (calf) has been ruled out for Saturday's game vs. Houston due to a strained right calf, his second straight contest out of the mix. P.J. Washington started in his stead Friday and compiled 17 points and six rebounds in place of Plumlee, knocking down five triples, an element that the veteran big man decidedly does not bring to the table. Plumlee has averaged just 24.8 minutes per contest over his last eight appearances, not reaching the 30-minute mark in any of those outings, which severely caps his season-long fantasy upside. His next chance to return to action comes Monday against the Bulls.
