Default Is it ok to wash and save yeast that stuck?

I had a brown ale that stuck at 1.025 but I was planning on using the yeast for a porter next week. I was gonna wash the yeast but if its crapped out, I dont want to add it to another beer and repeat the cycle. I will say I believe my issue was more aeration than recipe/mash temp related (I brewed 4 beers that weekend and this was the only one that didnt hit FG, aeration was the only change)

Should I risk it or toss it and pony up another 10 bucks?

If it was me, I'd chuck it. If I'm ever even slightly concerned about my yeast, it isn't worth the risk. The cost of the other ingredients and my valuable time ain't worth it.
