Bradley Beal played a surprisingly high 32 minutes against the Pistons on Saturday with eight points on 2-of-10 from the field with six rebounds, five assists, three steals and one 3-pointer.
He might have played a little more, but his shot was just off tonight and he wasn't help his team much. Beal was doing most of his work on the perimeter, but there was no indication that he's still dealing with his leg issue and he was diving for loose balls in the fourth. He was only doing 3-on-3 before tonight and he should get a full practice in soon. Beal is a must-own player. Feb 28 - 9:35 PM

Date:

Bradley Beal (leg) and Paul Pierce (knee) will play against the Pistons on Saturday.

The Wizards really need to win this game coming off a six-game losing streak. They said they wanted to have Beal practice more, but this might be a "desperate times call for desperate measures" case. Beal should be owned in all leagues, but he's not a complete must-start player because he is on a minutes restriction.
Feb 28 - 5:18 PM

Head coach Randy Wittman left open the possibility of Bradley Beal (leg) playing on Saturday against the Pistons.

Normally Beal would be required to make it through a full practice before returning, but coach Wittman said that it was not mandatory in order for Beal to play. "We’ll see in these next couple days," Wittman said before Friday's game against the 76ers. "He’s been going through simulations with all our players. All the hard running and stuff that needs to be done and then you check to make sure there’s no lingering effect the next day." We should know more on Beal's status closer to tip-off, so owners will want to check back for an update. Garrett Temple, Rasual Butler and Otto Porter will continue to see increased roles if Beal remains sidelined.

Bradley Beal (leg) will not suit up for Friday's game vs. the 76ers.

Beal still needs to go through a full practice before he can return to the court, so until that happens, he's not going to play. Garrett Temple, Otto Porter, and Rasual Butler will continue to split minutes at the two-spot with Beal sidelined, but the timeshare makes all of those guys too risky for use in most leagues.
Feb 27 - 12:08 PM

Bradley Beal (leg) is hoping to play Friday against the 76ers.

The Wizards really need him right now, going 2-6 since Beal went down. He will almost certainly be on a minutes limit in his return and likely be in the 24-30 range. With Beal back, we'll see a lot less of Otto Porter and Garrett Temple. The frontcourt guys should also score slightly less. Beal should be owned in standard leagues as more of a stash.
Feb 26 - 1:54 AM

Bradley Beal (leg) will miss his seventh consecutive game on Wednesday.

Beal traveled with the team and has been slowly ramping up his activity in recent days, leaving him questionable to return in Philly on Friday or at home on Saturday. Garrett Temple will earn another start at SG in his absence but he's only worth a look in deeper leagues.
Feb 25 - 6:56 PM

Bradley Beal (leg) will not suit up for Tuesday's game vs. the Warriors, as expected.

Garrett Temple will stick in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game, however, he'll be splitting minutes with Rasual Butler and Otto Porter Jr., making all three guys a risky play in daily leagues.

Bradley Beal (leg) was present at Wizards' practice on Tuesday, but only participated in individual drills.

While Beal seems to be inching closer to a return, it doesn't sound like that's an imminent possibility. Barring a miracle, we'll consider him out for Tuesday's game against the Warriors with a Saturday return looking like the more likely scenario. There isn't a direct fantasy beneficiary in Beal's absence, so Garrett Temple, Otto Porter, and Rasual Butler can all stay on the wire.
Feb 24 - 12:31 PM

Bradley Beal (leg) said he has been "running and jumping a little bit" in some on-court drills.

He said he has no soreness in his leg and "it's just a matter of time now" for him to return. Even with the positive news, we would still consider him doubtful to play on Tuesday against the Warriors. Perhaps he has a chance to return on Saturday following a three-game road trip. Beal should be stashed in all leagues.
Feb 23 - 4:31 PM

Bradley Beal (leg) did not practice on Monday.

The Wizards are certainly going to want Beal to go through a full practice before putting him on the court. He was expected to ramp up his on-court work this weekend, but it didn't happen. His fantasy owners should bench him this week. Meanwhile, Garrett Temple, Otto Porter and Rasual Butler haven't stepped up and we've seen the frontcourt guys add more offense since Beal went down.
Feb 23 - 2:46 PM

Bradley Beal (leg) will not play vs. the Pistons on Sunday as expected.

Beal wasn't able to go through a full practice on Saturday, and even though he is progressing well, he is probably looking at some more time on the sidelines. Otto Porter and Rasual Butler are worth a look in deeper leagues as they continue to fill the void for the Wizards.
Feb 22 - 1:17 PM

Bradley Beal (leg) did not go through a full practice on Saturday.

He was expected to "ramp it up" in practice today, so that's not a great sign. Beal did take part in some basketball activities today and seems to be progressing. As it stands right now, we would not expect him to play on Sunday. Otto Porter did have a solid game in 30 minutes on Friday, but the Wizards haven't seen him emerge as a shooter yet. Rasual Butler should be better despite how he's struggled lately.
Feb 21 - 3:06 PM

Bradley Beal (leg) is expected to ramp up exercise on Saturday and did not have an MRI on Friday morning.

Interestingly, the Wizards just had him visit a doctor. Based on that, they must feel very confident his leg is almost back to full strength. Although, they may take it easy on him considering this is his third incident with a stress reaction. Beal's fantasy owners can stash him and use Rasual Butler as a stop-gap guy.
Feb 20 - 7:24 PM

Bradley Beal (stress reaction, right leg) will not suit up for Friday's game against the Cavs.

He was doubtful heading into this one, so his absence shouldn't come has a surprise. He did say that he is feeling better, but added he won't return until he's 100 percent, which is smart for a guy who has missed time with the same injury in each of the past three seasons. Rasual Butler is going to be the primary beneficiary with Beal sidelined, and he's worth a look for owners seeking some 3-point shooting.
Feb 20 - 9:40 AM

Bradley Beal (leg) will have an MRI on Friday morning.

He hasn't been officially ruled out for Friday, but it would be a shock to see him out there. Beal needed about three weeks for the last stress reaction to his leg and this one is believed to be less severe. However, the Wizards obviously want to put this behind them, so he could rest even longer. Rasual Butler would be worth a look for any owner seeking 3-pointers.
