Default Yeast Harvest/Wash without starter

Hello!
I am presently unable to do up effective yeast starters for the next batch.
I have a Blonde ale on primary right now, with US-05, and I would like to utilize the yeast for my next batch. Could I harvest & wash this yeast, and then pitch within 24 hours, and still have a decent fermentation? I plan on a simple Wheat style thats within the same SG as the Blonde ale.

I have had no issues with straight pitching (no starter) up to a month after harvesting.

Sure, if you keep everything sanitized and got right cells number you don't need starter.
It may have longer lag phase but yeast will eventually woke up.
