P.J. Washington broke his finger in January and never missed a game.
Washington’s father told my radio co-host, T.J. Walker of Cats Illustrated, that his son broke his pinky in January. You’ll notice tape on his finger in the picture above. The injury will require surgery, but Washington never complained.
“People don’t realize our son was playing with a broken finger since January. A broken pinky finger. You try and go shoot free throws with a broken pinky finger. You have to be tough. Having to adjust to things with a broken finger isn’t easy.”
This weekend P.J. will fly to New York City to meet with his family when Findlay Prep, the school Washington Sr. coaches, will play in the Geico National High School Basketball Tournament. It will be the first time they discuss his future. Washington Sr. said they are in no rush to make a decision about the NBA.
