Bradley Beal SG WAS 7 Hrs

Bradley Beal hit 10-of-14 shots and three 3-pointers for 27 points, seven rebounds, three assists and two steals in Wednesday's easy win over the Celtics.

The Nets appeared to tank in order to ensure a matchup with the Raptors instead of the Bulls, leaving the Wizards to play Chicago in Round 1 of the playoffs. Beal is certainly in good form right now, and the Wiz will need everything he has against the Bulls. Trevor Booker, Trevor Ariza, Marcin Gortat (double-double), John Wall and Nene were all in double figures tonight, and the Wizards are pretty healthy heading into the postseason.

Bradley Beal (illness) played 26 minutes against the Heat during an easy 114-93 win on Sunday, scoring 15 points with three boards, five assists, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers.

He started hot and scored all 15 points before halftime. Beal had been feeling ill today, but he was still able to go through shootaround and said he was going to play. He should be in the lineup on Wednesday with the Wizards needing that game for seeding purposes.

Bradley Beal participated in Monday's shootaround despite feeling ill, and he said he'll be ready to go vs. the visiting Heat.

"I'll be fine. I'm good," Beal said. "Whenever you play the Heat, I always play like it's a championship game." A flu has been making the rounds in D.C., affecting Trevor Ariza last week as well as some assistant coaches, but it doesn't sound like it will cost Beal any games.

Bradley Beal hit 12-of-22 shots and two 3-pointers for 26 points, three rebounds and five assists in Saturday's easy win over the Bucks.

That's a great line and nine shooting night for Beal, who has overcome early injury concerns to have a nice season.

Bradley Beal scored 16 points during Friday's 96-86 win over the Magic to go with four boards, one assist, three steals and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

He took a very ugly fall after Kyle O'Quinn fouled him on a dunk attempt and the training staff looked at him for a brief moment. Beal was fine and was able to play his normal amount of playing time. The Wizards are only two games behind the Nets for the fifth seed and hold the sixth seed with a one-game lead over the Bobcats.

Bradley Beal scored an efficient 19 points during Wednesday's 118-92 win over the Celtics, adding two boards, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes.

He shot 7-of-8 from the field and has suddenly become hot with his 8-of-12 on Monday. Beal was getting some eyes on him from opposing defenses and he's been taking a lot more twos because of it. If he stays hot, the Wizards could make some noise in the playoffs.

Bradley Beal played 40 minutes during Monday's 100-94 loss to the Bobcats, making 8-of-12 from the field for 20 points with two boards, five assists, one block and two 3-pointers.

He was stuck in a slump before tonight, failing to shoot over 45 percent in any of his previous 12 games. Beal was especially cold from deep with just one 3-pointer combined in his previous three games, which has been his primary weapon as a scorer. Beal's sophomore season was a mild disappointment, but he still has star potential for his offensive arsenal.

Bradley Beal SG WAS 18 Days

Bradley Beal played 37 minutes during Saturday's 101-97 win with 14 points, six boards, five assists, one steal and one turnover.

His minutes dipped just a bit due to a hip pointer injury on Wednesday and they were right back up to where they were before. Beal shot just 38.4 percent in his previous March games and just 5-of-15 tonight, and he said on Friday it's because teams are defending him differently. He'll need to find new ways to get open looks from deep but the talent is there.

Bradley Beal SG WAS 19 Days

Bradley Beal (hip pointer) finished Friday's 91-78 win over the Pacers with only seven points on 2-of-13 shooting.

He made one 3-pointer and added three rebounds and two assists in 35 minutes of action, and his lousy shooting probably had more to do with the Pacers' defense than his ailing hip. Fantasy owners should start him with confidence, especially since Washington has a favorable four-game schedule vs. Eastern teams next week.

Bradley Beal (hip) is starting against the Pacers on Friday night.

He was able to return from his hip pointer injury back on Wednesday. Beal was expected to start and now it's official he'll be back, and he may also have no restrictions. It's not a great matchup, but get him in your lineup.
