I would attach a min of a 2x6 temporarily to the studs. Span from end to at least stud on other side of boxed out hole in wall. Attach it with 2 4" 3/8 lags per stud. I would do this on both sides. Then jack up 2x6 on both sides of wall. If lags start pulling out or it is hard to jack up then stop. Hopefully you can get it up that extra inch to replace the bottom plate. If the wall doesnt want to jack up you will have to cut studs down a little. once the new bottom stud is in straighten out the 2 stud that are crooked. You will probably need sledge hammer.
