Bradley Beal SG WAS 10 Days

Beal could miss 6-to-8 weeks after breaking his left wrist in Friday's preseason loss to the Hornets, the Washington Post reports.

The Wizards initially labeled the injury a sprain after Beal left Friday's game in the first quarter, but an MRI on Saturday revealed the fracture. It's a devastating development for both Beal, who seemed primed for a breakout in his third NBA season, and of course the Wizards, who will have to get by with the likes of Garrett Temple and Glen Rice Jr. at shooting guard for the time being with Martell Webster (back) also out. Xavier Silas may be an option as well.

Beal is expected to miss "some time" after injuring his left wrist during Friday's preseason game against the Hornets, the Washington Post reports.

A timetable for his return has not been established, but a person with knowledge of the situation described Beal's injury as "not good" after he underwent an MRI on Saturday. Beal suffered the injury in the first quarter of Friday's exhibition, with the Wizards later classifying it as a "sprain," and he was seen with a brace on the wrist after the game. Garrett Temple and Glen Rice Jr. figure to see a spike in playing time, at least in the short term.

Beal left Friday's game with a sprained left wrist and will not return.

Beal logged just ten minutes in Friday's game against the Bobcats before he was forced out with the injury. Assuming it doesn't turn out to be something more serious, he shouldn't miss any regular season time.

Bradley Beal spoke highly of Paul Pierce in a recent interview, stating that he's eager to learn from the decorated veteran.

"He's experienced, he's won a championship before, so he has that mentality and that killer instinct that I think we need on our team," said Beal. "He has that little cockiness and arrogance that we need, and that little smack-talking that I can probably learn from as well. I'm definitely looking forward to playing with him and learning a lot of things." The Wizards lost Trevor Ariza in free agency, but found a solid replacement in Pierce. While Pierce isn't quite the same defensive stalwart that Ariza is, he has a more polished offensive game, and the Wizards will be an exciting team to watch next season.

John Wall is expected to spend more time with Bradley Beal this offseason.

The two are expected to workout together in Washington and St. Louis. Wall and Beal are arguably the best young backcourt in the NBA and both grew as ball-handlers last season. Beal is just 20 years old and still has plenty of room to grow, making him a very interesting target in fantasy leagues.

Bradley Beal played 43 minutes during Thursday's season-ending 93-80 loss to the Pacers on Thursday, scoring 16 points with three boards, four assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers.

The Wizards just couldn't knock down open shots, making just 2-of-18 from beyond the arc. Plus, their halfcourt offense was a mess and they rarely got clean looks at the hoop. As for Beal, he blossomed as a ball handler a bit in the postseason and he'll look to make another leap in his third season next fall.

Bradley Beal banged his knee during Sunday's Game 4 defeat, but he said the injury "wasn't a factor" during the fourth quarter.

Bradley Beal scored a team-high 20 points with two 3-pointers, five rebounds, five assists and three steals in Game 4, but the Wizards fell at home and will face elimination during Game 5 on Tuesday.

Beal made 7-of-14 FGs and only turned the ball over once in a team-high 42 minutes. Trevor Ariza added 16 points, nine rebounds and three steals, and Washington's veteran bench aquitted itself well, but the Wizards were out-rebounded and struggled to defend the 3-point line in a disappointing home loss.

Paul George said he will defend Bradley Beal in Game 3 on Friday.

John Wall's touches are down a bit from his 95.0 per game from the regular season and it has a little to do with Beal. The Wizards have been running much of their offense through Beal and the Beal-Nene pick-and-roll has been used much more. Beal has been efficient in this series with his 42 points on 33 shots in this series, and he'll look to keep it going in Game 3 tonight.
