Bradley Beal SG WAS 3 Days
Bradley Beal scored in a variety of ways against the Jazz on Wednesday, finishing with 22 points, five boards, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes.
It's the first time he's hit multiple 3-pointers since Feb. 19 and he's also cleared 21 points in three of his last five games. In that five-game span, Beal averaged 17.2 points, 3.8 boards, 3.2 assists, 1.0 steals and 1.2 triples in 37.4 minutes per game. The second-year guard is attacking the rim more and looks as healthy as ever. He could finish strong as the Wizards compete for a playoff spot.

Bradley Beal scored 23 points against the Grizzlies on Monday night with one board, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes.
His production from deep has fallen off a little bit and he hasn't made multiple treys in a game in any of his last six games. Beal's shots from closer range has started to fall, so hopefully the Wizards go back to giving him more chances to shoot from deep instead of feeding a red-hot Trevor Ariza. Beal took a while to heat up last year and perhaps he may need that time again in his season season.

Bradley Beal played 51 minutes against the Raptors during Thursday's 134-129 win, scoring 11 points with 10 boards, four assists, one steal and one 3-pointer on 4-of-16 from the field.
While this line isn't pretty, the amount of minutes is kind of a big story. Beal played between 35 and 38 minutes in previous seven games and tonight's game served as an exclamation point that the team has zero concerns about playing him big minutes after restricting him in December and January. The silky-smooth shooter played 40.4 minutes per game back in November and it would not be a shock to see him tear it up down the stretch
Bradley Beal SG WAS 17 Days
Bradley Beal hit 7-of-16 shots and two 3-pointers for 19 points, five rebounds, six assists and a block in Wednesday's win over the Hawks.
He hit 2-of-10 shots on Tuesday, but looked much better tonight. As long as his leg injury doesn't reappear, he should finish with a bang down the stretch.
Bradley Beal SG WAS 24 Days
Bradley Beal scored 20 points in 36 minutes against the Rockets on Wednesday with four boards, five assists, two steals and four 3-pointers.
He shot 4-of-14 from two-point range and 4-of-10 from deep in the loss. Beal's shot selection on his attempts from inside the arc have been a problem for him and he really should stop taking so many long twos. Outside of that, everything looks like it's going well for Beal and his patient owners are seeing some nice rewards.
Bradley Beal SG WAS 25 Days
Bradley Beal scored a career-high 37 points against the Grizzlies on Tuesday with five boards, two assists and five 3-pointers in 37 minutes on 15-of-24 shooting.
He had it all on display tonight. Beal was running give-and-go's, hitting step-back treys and was great in isolation. Tonight was his highest total in minutes since being diagnosed with a leg fracture back in November and the Wizards seem like they're ready to unleash him without restrictions. Beal strangely is shooting a higher percentage on treys than on twos, so hopefully he can get his inside-the-arc game going while staying healthy.

Bradley Beal put in extra work on his 3-point shot over the weekend.
The added reps paid off as Beal busted out of a shooting slump in Sunday's win over the Kings, connecting on 4-of-5 3-pointers on his way to a 16-6-5 line. Now that his minutes restriction has been lifted, it's the kind of outing we're expecting to see more and more of going forward. Beal is an underrated playmaker from the off guard spot and a better shooter than his 40.9 percent mark shows. Owners should keep expectations for Tuesday night in check, however, as he's facing the Grizzlies' dominant defense in Memphis.

Bradley Beal was seen going through the concussion protocol with trainers during Wednesday's loss to San Antonio.
Beal ran into a hard screen from Tim Duncan midway through the third quarter and was slow to get up. Beal was able to pass the in-game concussion tests with team trainers and returned to score five points in the fourth quarter. "I had a little headache for a little second, but it went away once I got back out there. It definitely was a hard hit, but that definitely was not going to stop me from playing," Beal said. It does not appear that Beal's status is in jeopardy for Friday night's game against the Cavs, but we'll be monitoring his situation after shootaround.

Bradley Beal said that he felt "the same" after logging 34 minutes on Saturday, and he hopes that his playing time continues to increase.
The Wizards recently cleared him to play 30+ minutes after an MRI showed progress in the stress reaction in his lower right leg. "I wasn't tired or anything like that," Beal said. "I'm definitely in shape." He shot just 3-of-12 from the field on Saturday but should get back on track vs. the Trail Blazers on Monday.
