Bradley Beal is fine following banging knees on Friday.
He was in some pain on Friday, but it didn't really affect his playing time in the win. Beal is locked in for around 42 minutes per game in the coach Randy Wittman's playoff rotation and he's taking 19 shots per game. He didn't have a great game on Friday with 16 points, but there could be a big game on the way. Apr 25 - 4:42 PM

Bradley Beal caught fire on Tuesday, finishing with 28 points on 12-of-21 shooting, two 3-pointers, five boards, two assists and one steal in 42 minutes.

Beal's confidence is surging at the right time for the Wizards, who emphatically claimed an 0-2 lead in their first-round series. During a halftime interview Beal said, "[The Raptors] think that we’re some punks. They think they can push around. But we’re not rolling." The Wizards would be well-served to have Beal stay this aggressive and pugnacious as the playoffs continue.

Bradley Beal stayed late after Washington's Game 1 win to get in extra shooting work.

Beal managed to make just 6-of-23 shots, and that prompted the extra session. "Have to," Beal said of the additional work. "Can’t shoot 6 for 23. Just want to get a rhythm. I’ve got to just make sure everything’s feeling good still." Kudos to the Florida product for putting in the work after his team won, a move several players wouldn't have necessarily made.

Bradley Beal made 6-of-23 from the field for 16 points against the Raptors during an overtime 93-86 win on Saturday, adding nine rebounds, six assists, one steal, four turnovers and one 3-pointer in 48 minutes.

Coach Randy Wittman went to a Beal pick-and-roll quite a bit in this game, but it wasn't really a productive play for them. He really struggled down the stretch today and that's been a problem for him in his career. On the lighter side, Kyle Lowry fouled Beal for Lowry's sixth foul and Beal waved goodbye to Lowry. Beal might play off the ball a little more should he have another off game like this one.
Apr 18 - 4:22 PM

Bradley Beal will not play against the Cavs on Wednesday.

He's healthy and is just getting some rest on the second half of a back-to-back set. Rasual Butler and Otto Porter will get a ton of minutes in the starting lineup. Martell Webster should get some playing time, too.
Apr 15 - 6:46 PM

Bradley Beal hit 7-of-9 shots and three 3-pointers for 21 points, three boards and three assists on Wednesday, and shook off a nasty fall against the Sixers.

Beal fell over Hollis Thompson, but there doesn't appear to be any cause for concern given how good Beal looked following the incident. Keep him in your lineup until further notice.
Apr 8 - 9:48 PM

Bradley Beal scored 20 points with five rebounds, two assists, one steal and three turnovers in 40 minutes during a 92-83 win at Memphis on Saturday.

He is playing confident ball right now. Beal had a nice dunk in transition and gave Beno Udrih a nice little stare. In his last five, he's averaged 17.8 points, 4.6 boards, 3.6 dimes, 1.4 steals and 1.0 treys. Beal is a must-start player and could be a top-50 pick next season with a strong finish this season. You can check out a Vine of the stare-down dunk in the link below.
Apr 5 - 12:55 AM

Bradley Beal scored 18 points on 8-of-18 shooting (including two threes) with three rebounds, five assists, two steals and one block in Friday's blowout win.

Beal took a trip to the locker room but was back on the court in no time so tonight is undoubtedly a good look. If he can keep it up through the duration of the fantasy playoffs, perhaps he can make amends with owners for the disappointing season.
Apr 4 - 12:37 AM

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.
Mar 26 - 2:16 PM

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.
