Bradley Beal said that he'll continue to take midrange jumpers.
"That’s definitely a shot that, even though a lot of people in the NBA don’t like, I’m going to continue to work on it. It’s an open shot and I think you’re probably more open shooting that shot than a lot of other shots," Beal said. Kobe Bryant is nodding his head in approval. Beal is also spending time this offseason working on his handles as well as creating offense for his teammates Jul 6 - 10:40 AM

Bradley Beal and the Wizards have reportedly begun discussing an extension.

Beal feels that he's a max-player, and he could certainly secure a max-level extension with the Wizards, especially considering that the salary cap will skyrocket in a few seasons. Beal is a very talented player, however, his struggles with health (two injury plagued seasons in his three-year career) could emerge as an issue when discussing that max-contract.

Bradley Beal said he hopes that no one wins the NBA Championship now that the Wizards have been eliminated.

When asked about his pick to win the title, Beal said, "I hope nobody wins. I’m a sore loser." Hilarious quote aside, Beal had a solid third NBA season, but was still only able to suit up for 63 regular season games. While the 21-year-old has mid-round fantasy potential, owners will need to take injury concerns into account when using a draft pick on Beal.

Coach Randy Wittman said Bradley Beal and John Wall "are going to be here a long time."

Beal is eligible for an extension this summer and the Wizards may opt to use it. He has improved in each of his two seasons and really just needs to avoid further injuries to his legs. He'll offer huge upside in drafts next season.
May 16 - 2:42 PM

Bradley Beal scored a game-high 29 points against the Hawks during a Game 6 loss on Friday with six rebounds, three assists, one seal and three 3-pointers.

Beal made 11-of-24 from the field and didn't turn the ball over in 43 minutes. For the entire series, Beal showed he's much better on the ball than we thought heading into the playoffs. He is still just 21 years old and is almost certainly going to improve in his upcoming third season. He'll be worth targeting in the early rounds. The only issue with Beal is he needs to stay healthy.
May 15 - 9:54 PM

Bradley Beal led the Wizards with 23 points, seven rebounds, four assists, a steal, three blocks and a 3-pointer on 9-of-21 shooting in Wednesday's tough loss to the Hawks.

Beal played very well, as usual, and it was nice to see him do this on the same night John Wall returned from a wrist injury. Beal has been a fantasy beast throughout the playoffs, and should continue to be as long as the Wizards are still alive. Trailing 3-2, Game 6 is in Washington, and Game 7 will be back in Atlanta, if necessary.
May 13 - 11:10 PM

Bradley Beal continued to be the focal point of the Wizards' attack in their Game 4 loss to the Hawks, scoring 34 points on 11-of-25 shooting with six rebounds, seven assists, three steals and one block in 44 minutes.

Beal also had Nene land on his left knee but we haven't heard anything about that in the postgame. He's going to be the focal point for the Wizards and his efficiency will suffer, but as long as Mike Budenholzer doesn't sick Kent Bazemore on him more often he'll have the step on any Hawks defender he faces. Look for continued big numbers as the series heads back to Atlanta for Wednesday's pivotal Game 5.
May 11 - 10:24 PM

Bradley Beal called Jeff Teague's Flagrant 1 foul against him "dangerous" and was clearly annoyed by his actions.

"It was dangerous because I hit the back of the (stanchion). I got up," Beal said. "It was a kind of messed up play but it is what it is. I'm not going to haggle on it. We won. That's all that matters." Teague also contributed to John Wall's wrist injury, and it's pretty obvious that the Wizards are getting fed up with him. The Wizards may ask the league office to review the foul, but it doesn't seem likely that a suspension is on the way. For now, this will only add to the drama leading up to Game 4 in Washington on Monday.
May 10 - 12:20 PM

Bradley Beal handed out eight assists during a thrilling 103-101 win in Game 3 on Saturday, adding 17 points, three rebounds, one steal, two 3-pointers and five turnovers on 6-of-15 from the field.

He started fast with seven dimes in the first half and became more of a scorer in the second. Beal did take way too many forced shots and his defense was abysmal at times. Coach Randy Wittman said that Beal would be more of a distributor, so expect a bit of an adjustment period. Still, he has a very high ceiling in games without John Wall (wrist), who is essentially out indefinitely. Ramon Sessions also took a step back with eight points, three rebounds, six assists and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes.
May 9 - 8:30 PM

Bradley Beal said the he felt he tried to do too much during Washington's Game 2 loss to the Hawks with John Wall (wrist) on the sidelines.

"I think that’s what kind of made me play the way I did [during Game 2]. I was probably trying to do too much," said Beal. "Instead of letting [Ramon Sessions] play the one and doing what he do and just continuing to do what I do, [I was] thinking, ‘Oh man, I got to create, I got to get guys shots, I got to get rebounds, I got to score,’ I can’t think like that." Beal is going to have to handle the ball more than usual with Wall out, but he needs to do that without forcing the issue. It's a delicate balance, but Beal needs to figure it out for Washington to have any shot of upsetting the East's No. 1 seed sans Wall. It also couldn’t hurt if he improved on his shooting percentage (38.3 percent from the field this postseason), but given his hefty workload, he’ll be a quality plug-and-play option in daily leagues.
May 8 - 10:34 AM

When asked about the John Wall (wrist) injury, Bradley Beal said it's "time to put the team on my back."

"I think I’m comfortable with being able to handle it as well," Beal added. "So it’s time to mature and grow up a little bit." He's going to be dominating the ball a lot and the good news is that he said his ankle is 100 percent. During the regular season and playoffs, Beal posted a 28.0 usage rate and a 20.2 assist percentage in his minutes without Wall, which means he'll likely be taking over 20 shots again and he should have a nice amount of dimes. There could be some big lines for Beal on the way.

May 7 - 7:22 PM

Bradley Beal said that his ankle was "throbbing" after Game 2, but added that he feels fine now, and his ankle is basically back to 100 percent.

Beal played 43 minutes during Game 2, so there's no reason to think he won't be available for Game 3 on Saturday in Washington. At this point John Wall's (wrist) status is still up in the air for Game 3, and if he's unable to go, Beal would need to spend some additional time running Washington’s offense. Beal makes for a decent daily league target, with or without Wall.
May 7 - 2:30 PM

Bradley Beal played through a sprained ankle to finish Tuesday's Game 2 loss with 20 points on 8-of-22 shooting, two 3-pointers, five rebounds, seven assists and three steals in 43 minutes.

John Wall's absence left a gaping hole in the Wizards' offense which Beal did his best to fill. His ankle didn't appear to limit him and he was at his best attacking the rim, but there were too many mid-range jumpers -- he shot 1-of-7 between 8-20 feet from the basket. With three full days of rest before the series resumes it's safe to assume that Beal will be raring to go for Game 3.
May 5 - 10:57 PM

Bradley Beal (ankle) will suit up for Game 2 against the Hawks on Tuesday.

Confirming a previous item in which Beal said he expected to play, the 21-year-old will officially be in the Wizards' starting lineup on Tuesday. Beal has dealt with quite a few ankle injuries in his short NBA tenure, but he practiced without much issue on Monday and should be in good enough shape to continue his strong playoff run in Game 2 against the Hawks.
May 5 - 12:00 PM

Bradley Beal (ankle) said he expects to play in Game 2 against the Hawks on Tuesday.

Before comparing playing the Hawks to fighting Floyd Mayweather, Beal didn't sound too concerned about his availability for Tuesday night. "I should be good [Tuesday]," Beal said. "I've sprained this ankle 30 times. The swelling has never gone away. [But] it wasn't that bad. Actually, I got to thank my trainers because I feel a lot better today than I did yesterday." The 21-year-old is averaging 22.2 points and 5.6 rebounds in the playoffs and should be all-systems-go for Tuesday's Game 2.
