Bradley Beal scored 15 points on 4-of-11 shooting during Sunday's loss to the Rockets, adding one 3-pointer, one steal, one block and three turnovers through 38 minutes of action.
Beal also shot 6-of-7 from the charity stripe in this one, and although the stat line isn't that impressive, the high minute total would suggest that his ankle is doing just fine. The Wizards have a three-game week next week, with two favorable matchups against the Knicks and 76ers, so hopefully he can get things back on track. Mar 29 - 5:06 PM

Bradley Beal played in Friday's double-overtime win despite hurting his ankle in Wednesday's game, scoring 16 points on 7-of-18 shooting (including two threes) with six rebounds, six assists and three steals in 43 minutes.

The Wizards are playing for their identity right now but it's still unclear whether gassing Beal this much makes sense. He has struggled with injuries for a while and specifically with playing through injuries to a fault. Still, he said after the game that he felt no pain and just fatigue, and by any measure tonight was a success for frustrated owners.

Bradley Beal (ankle) will start against the Hornets on Friday.

The Wizards dodged a bullet here with Garrett Temple (hamstring) out and this injury also occurring to Beal's troublesome right leg. He can be started in all leagues tonight in a very important game for the Wizards.
Mar 27 - 6:25 PM

Bradley Beal (ankle) went through shootaround, but he remains questionable for Friday's game vs. Charlotte.

Beal said it's possible that he plays tonight, but he wants to go through pre-game warmups before making an official decision. It sounds like Beal may be headed for the dreaded game-time decision, so owners will need to check back for an update on his status closer to tip-off. If he sits, Rasual Butler, Otto Porter, and Martell Webster would split his minutes. Stay tuned.

Wizards' head coach Randy Wittman said that Bradley Beal's sprained right ankle is "not too bad," and the swelling has gone down.

Beal was able to walk off the court without any assistance following his ankle injury, and he didn't require a walking boot or crutches when he left the arena, which are all positive signs. We'll be considering Beal questionable for Friday's game against the Hornets, and owners can expect to get another update on his status following Friday morning's shootaround. If he's unable to go, it'll be Rasual Butler, Otto Porter, and Martell Webster splitting his minutes, although none of those guys are worth an add in standard leagues.

Bradley Beal (right ankle) will not return to Wednesday's game due to an ankle sprain.

He was in a lot of pain after rolling his ankle on a drive to the basket. Beal does have some issues with his lower right leg and hopefully this doesn't affect that issue. If he's out, it'll be a group effort of Rasual Butler and Otto Porter stepping up. Neither are worth grabbing in most leagues while owners in deep leagues can take a look at either depending on need. Martell Webster started the second half and maybe he gets some run, too.
Mar 25 - 7:46 PM

Bradley Beal barely survived the Wizards' 31-point blowout loss to the Warriors on Monday, hitting 4-of-11 shots (including two threes) for 12 points, two rebounds and one steal in 34 minutes.

Beal is getting minutes and he simply needs to hit shots to pay owners off for a bad season. If everything is absolutely clicking for him he can sneak into some mid-round value, but with the way things have gone he'll be lucky to post late-round numbers the rest of the way. The rest of the Wizards' box score is not suitable for children and should probably be ignored for evaluation purposes.
Mar 24 - 12:55 AM

Bradley Beal was the only Wizard to score more than 11 points on Sunday, finishing a disappointing road loss with 19 points on 8-of-13 shooting, three rebounds, four assists and one steal.

Washington was flat from the opening tip and they've now lost two straight games, leaving them 1.5 games behind Chicago for the No. 4 seed and first-round homecourt advantage. Beal's owners can't complain as he's finally rolling after an injury-plagued season during which he's missed 18 games and averaged just 14.8 points, down from 17.1 points last season. With four games on tap this week, Beal is poised to be a difference-maker in fantasy playoffs.
Mar 22 - 8:44 PM

Bradley Beal hit 5-of-10 shots (3-of-5 from deep, 5-of-5 from the line) for 18 points with two rebounds and four assists in 27 minutes on Friday.

Beal's fantasy future is in his hands as the minutes are there and he simply needs to make shots like he did tonight to have mid-round upside.
Mar 21 - 2:59 AM

Bradley Beal played 40 minutes against the Jazz on Wednesday with nine points, four rebounds, two assists and four turnovers.

The Jazz have been the best defense in the NBA since the break, so Beal having a bad game isn't too big of an indication of him slowing down -- he did score 23 points on Monday. The good news is that he's played at least 39 minutes in each of his last two games and will have more chances to post big lines. He'll be an interesting daily play on Friday against the Clippers.
Mar 19 - 1:47 AM

Despite dealing with a variety of minor ailments, Bradley Beal will not have any restrictions on the Wizards' upcoming 4-game road trip.

Beal has been a little rusty since returning from his leg injury on Feb. 28, but he was able to drop 23 points with seven assists in 39 minutes vs. the Blazers on Monday, which was the most action he has seen since the beginning of February. As long as Beal doesn't suffer any setbacks in his lower right leg, he will likely continue to battle through injuries as the Wizards look to bolster their position in the Eastern Conference. Deploy him with confidence.
Mar 18 - 9:08 AM

Bradley Beal was hot against the Blazers on Monday with 23 points, four rebounds, seven assists, one steal and four 3-pointers on 8-of-13 from the field.

His 3-pointers disappeared coming into tonight, making just two combined in his previous four. Beal has seven dimes in back-to-back games now and tonight's 39 minutes were the most he's played since he missed time with a leg injury last month. He looks ready to finish the season on a high note.
Mar 16 - 9:47 PM

Bradley Beal scored 14 points in 34 minutes against the Kings on Saturday with six rebounds, seven assists, one block and two 3-pointers.

He didn't look great in the first half, but really got into a nice rhythm in the second half. Beal is still not tearing it up like everyone thought he would, but at least there are some flashes here. In his previous four, Beal averaged 13.3 points, 3.5 boards, 2.5 dimes, 1.0 steals and 0.5 treys. His fantasy owners need those triples to rise in a hurry.
Mar 14 - 9:47 PM

Bradley Beal acknowledged during a recent interview that he needs to take his game to the next level in order for the Wizards to be competitive.

"My game definitely has to escalate," Beal said. "And it has to escalate now. I know it starts with John and [me]. I have to definitely step up my play." Beal has been struggling since the break, averaging 12.2 points and just 0.6 three-pointers per game on 37.9 percent shooting from the field. He is however keeping his value afloat with his other contributions of 3.0 assists and 1.4 steals per game. Eventually his shot is going to start to fall, so owners will just need to ride out the slump.
Mar 13 - 12:19 PM

Bradley Beal scored just nine points in 27 minutes against the Grizzlies on Thursday with three rebounds, four assists, one steal and three turnovers.

He had a little bit of early foul trouble, but Beal just never got it going tonight. He hasn't played well in his last four, averaging 13.3 points, 3.5 boards, 2.5 dimes, 1.0 steals and 0.5 treys on 41.1 percent from the field. He should be better against the Kings on Saturday.
