Hornets’ PJ Washington was injured when teammate threw ball at him

Charlotte Hornets rookie PJ Washington is out indefinitely with a fractured finger, and now he is revealing the strange way that he suffered the injury.

Speaking with reporters on Friday, the 21-year-old forward said that he was hurt when teammate Miles Bridges threw the ball at him after a five-second violation in last week’s win over the Chicago Bulls. Washington also joked that Bridges wasn’t particularly sorry about it, per Rod Boone of The Athletic.

Washington, who is averaging 12.3 points and 5.3 rebounds per game in his first professional season, has since undergone surgery to repair that fractured fifth finger on his right hand.

Bridges might owe Washington dinner on the road at some point, but this is not even the weirdest way that an NBA player has gotten hurt this season.
