Bradley Beal scored seven points in a 97-95 win over the Pistons on Saturday, adding one rebound, one steal and no other stats.

He didn't even take any treys, made 3-of-8 from the field and made just 1-of-3 from the line. Beal was not himself tonight, but he gets a pass here. He was one of the best high-volume players before his shoulder injury and should get it turned around soon. He should be in all lineups this coming week with four games.

Bradley Beal (shoulder) will start on Saturday against the Pistons.

Beal has been sidelined for the past three games, but he made it through a full practice on Friday and tested his shoulder out in warmups. He mentioned earlier in the week that he was battling some stiffness in his neck and back as well, but it isn't clear if he will have any limitations tonight. Go ahead and get him in your lineup and we'll let you know how he holds up after the game. Garrett Temple will return to the bench and can be cut in most leagues.

Bradley Beal (shoulder) participated in the Wizards' shootaround, but he doesn't know if he will play vs. the Pistons on Saturday.

Beal will warm up and test his shoulder prior to the game, so he will be a game-time decision. He did practice in full on Friday, so his chances of playing appear to be pretty good. If Beal can't go, Garrett Temple will continue to start for the Wizards.
Nov 21 - 1:35 PM

Bradley Beal (shoulder) was able to go through a full practice on Friday.

This is wonderful news and this means that he has a great shot of playing against the Pistons on Saturday after a three-game absence. Garrett Temple will move to the bench if Beal is able to play, while Gary Neal's value will shrink as well. Beal also admitted that he is dealing with some tightness in his back and neck, but he doesn't have any more pain in his shoulder and will test it out prior to the game. He is officially listed as questionable.
Nov 20 - 12:30 PM

Bradley Beal (shoulder) did not practice on Thursday.

Beal was able to do some non-contact things during Thursday's practice, and head coach Randy Wittman said they will see how sore he feels on Friday before determining his status for Saturday's game against the Pistons. It's been 12 days since Beal originally suffered the shoulder injury, and the fact that he's yet to take any contact isn't a great sign regarding his status for Saturday's game, so we're going to consider him closer to doubtful than questionable for that one. Garrett Temple has started the last two games with Beal on the sidelines, but he's not really doing enough to warrant a pickup in standard leagues.
Nov 19 - 2:25 PM

Bradley Beal (shoulder) will remain sidelined for Tuesday's game against the Bucks.

Tuesday's game will mark Beal's third consecutive game on the sidelines for what was initially deemed a minor injury by the Wizards, and it'll likely be Garrett Temple or Gary Neal in the starting lineup sans Beal. Otto Porter should also seem some increased opportunity with Beal on the sidelines. The Wizards don't play again until Saturday, and we'll be considering Bradley questionable for that one.
Nov 17 - 5:24 PM

Bradley Beal (shoulder) is doubtful to play against the Bucks on Tuesday.

Beal did not participate in shootaround on Tuesday and is likely to miss his third straight game. Garrett Temple is likely to start again if Beal sits, while Otto Porter and Gary Neal would also see an increase in value.
Nov 17 - 12:11 PM

Bradley Beal (left shoulder) did not practice on Monday.

Beal took contact before Saturday's game to see if he could play, so the shooting guard is getting closer to a return. Washington plays on Tuesday vs. Milwaukee, but their next game isn't until Saturday vs. Detroit, and that may be a more realistic target date for BB's return. Garrett Temple, who had 18 points (three triples) in 31 minutes in Beal's place on Saturday, should again start on Tuesday if Beal sits out.
Nov 16 - 1:56 PM

Bradley Beal (shoulder) will not play on Saturday vs. the Magic and Garrett Temple will start in his place.

Beal tested out his shoulder in warmups so he must not be comfortable enough to play just yet. After missing practice on Friday and shootaround this morning, this isn't a huge surprise. Temple is more of a defensive specialist and isn't worth a look in most leagues, while Gary Neal's value will take a hit with his demotion to the bench.
Nov 14 - 6:23 PM

Bradley Beal (shoulder) will get "banged around" during warmups to see if he can play on Saturday.

He's a game-time decision for this one. Beal's shoulder kept him out of practice on Friday and he did not going through shootaround on Saturday morning. If he's out, Gary Neal will likely start while John Wall will get a bigger chance to get out of his shooting slump.
Nov 14 - 5:20 PM

Bradley Beal (shoulder) did not go through shootaround and is still listed as questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Magic.

For what it's worth, Wizards Insider J. Michael doesn't expect Beal to play, and it was reported on Friday that he will likely be a game-time decision. The good news is that his injury isn't considered serious, but it sounds like the Wizards could play it safe and hold him out. If Beal sits, expect Gary Neal to pick up the bulk of his minutes, but it's safe to say that the Wizards will likely use a committee approach to replace his production.
Nov 14 - 11:57 AM

Bradley Beal (shoulder) did not practice on Friday and will be a game-time decision on Saturday.

That's not a good sign he'll be ready for Saturday, but that could change at tomorrow's shootaround. Beal has been going in a "good direction" and at least his injury isn't serious. If he's out, Gary Neal will pick up most of the minutes while it a be a team effort to replace his terrific production this year.
Nov 13 - 2:09 PM

Bradley Beal (shoulder) did not practice on Thursday, although head coach Randy Wittman said that Beal's recovery is moving in a "good direction."

Beal is still sore, but he's been pretty adamant about returning to the lineup for Saturday's game vs. the Magic. However, players tend to be a bit overly optimistic when projecting their return dates from an injury, and with Beal's injury history, it wouldn't be surprising to see the Wizards take a more cautious approach here. For now, we'll be considering Beal questionable for Saturday, and if he's unable to go Gary Neal would likely draw another start with Ramon Sessions seeing some increased opportunity off the bench.
Nov 12 - 2:22 PM

Bradley Beal (shoulder) said he is "optimistic" about playing on Saturday against the Magic.

He did not play on Tuesday, but he wasn't ruled out until just before the game. The Wizards are off for three days and Beal's injury is to his non-shooting shoulder, so at least those are positives for him. Beal was one of the most efficient, high-volume scorers in the NBA so far, so his fantasy owners will want him in the lineup at home.
