Charlotte Hornets DFS Notes
P.J. Washington hit 5-of-8 shots for 15 points, three rebounds, one steal, one block, and two turnovers in 31 minutes in a 133-119 loss Monday night against the Bulls. Washington has battled some injuries this month but has played over his last three by scoring in double-figures in all of them. Washington's good play could continue as his next three opponents are all in the bottom third in the NBA in guarding forwards. Opposing forwards are averaging 22.6 points and 10.6 rebounds them and the only reason Washington came off the bench tonight was because it was Nick Richards' birthday - and Richards only played seven minutes. PJW is a must-roster player at this point.
Milwaukee Bucks DFS Notes
Giannis Antetokounmpo notched his 12th double-double of the season on Sunday with 26 points and 13 boards across 33 minutes.

Khris Middleton hit 6-of-13 shots for 14 points, five rebounds, five assists, one 3-pointer, two steals and three turnovers in 30 minutes.
