Bradley Beal, a guard with the Washington Wizards, missed practice on Tuesday due to an injury, raising some questions among supporters about his health. Beal suffered a quad injury in their most recent matchup with the Charlotte Hornets and is now rated as questionable for Wednesday’s game against the Miami Heat. He apparently received a knee from Mason Plumlee late in the game, but he was able to continue playing until he was replaced.
It’s undoubtedly a worrying development for the Wizards, particularly given how recently he returned from a five-game layoff resulting from health and safety regulations. Washington is also on a two-game winning streak, so any potential star player absence would be detrimental to the team’s current momentum.
Beal presently averages 22.7 points, 3.7 rebounds, 5.8 assists, and 1.3 steals while making an effective 51.2 percent of his field goals and 38.3 percent of his long-range attempts.
The good news for the Wizards is that Bradley Beal doesn’t seem like he’ll be gone for very long, even if he is injured. The Capital City team plays the Boston Celtics, Minnesota Timberwolves, and Brooklyn Nets following back-to-back contests against the Heat.
There is a great deal of optimism that Beal will be able to participate in those contests and assist the Wizards to improve from their 10-7 record as of now. Tuesday saw Washington tie with the Atlanta Hawks for sixth place in the Eastern Conference, one game ahead of the Toronto Raptors.
