According to sources of the Washington Post, the Wizards are expected to offer Bradley Beal a five-year max deal.
We already knew the Wizards wanted to re-sign Beal, but he's been adamant about receiving a max deal and it sounds like Washington will give it to him. His durability issues are a major red flag, but the Wizards don't really have any alternative options and the rising salary cap will allow them to take some risks. He's a restricted free agent, so the Wizards will still be able to match any opposing offers if they change their mind about giving him the max. Free agency begins on July 1st. May 27 - 10:37 AM

The Wizards are reportedly determined to keep their core of John Wall, Bradley Beal, Otto Porter, Markieff Morris and Marcin Gortat intact.

Beal will be seeking a max deal as a restricted free agent this offseason, and given that Beal is one of the higher upside guys in the upcoming free agency class, he'll likely find a team out there willing to pay him big money. The Wizards will have the right to match any offer that Beal receives on the open market, and early indications are that they will do whatever they can to retain him, despite his constant struggles with staying healthy.

Bradley Beal said he's looking for a max contract this summer.

"I feel like I’m a max player and that’s what I’m looking for," Beal said. "If Washington can’t meet that requirement then I may be thinking elsewhere. I’m pretty sure that they probably won’t [let me go]." Beal would be looking for a deal of around $92 million over four years. His leg injury concerns make him a big risk, so there may not be a big market for him at that price.

Bradley Beal is hoping to use the summer to get his troublesome right leg back to full strength.

"I’m thinking of different methods, if I want to stick to the routine I’ve been on the last couple years, if I want to start lifting more or lifting less, do more running. I definitely have to change my diet," Beal said. "I’m very unique. Nobody else has this injury but me. It’s hard to reach out and research anybody else who has it and what they’ve done for it. It’s like I’m a guinea pig and just testing out things and see if they work or not. I trust the doctors." Beal has developed a stress reaction in his lower right leg in four straight seasons, so he's going to be a risky pick in fantasy regardless of where he lands in restricted free agency.

Bradley Beal said that he and John Wall should've had a much better season together.

"As far as us two together it wasn’t anything unusual. There was no beef or anything like that," Beal said of his relationship with Wall. "We just didn’t play as well as we were supposed to. I think sometimes we put a lot of pressure on ourselves and we tried to overdo it especially if one’s not playing and the other one is. There’s a lot of things that factor into it. Overall, it’s no excuse. We both should’ve had a better year than we had." injuries only allowed Beal to play in 55 games this season, so the durability concerns will once again make him a risky pick in fantasy drafts next season.
Apr 17 - 12:25 PM

Bradley Beal (pelvis), Markieff Morris (rest) and Marcin Gortat (rest) will all miss Wednesday's season finale vs. the Hawks.

John Wall has already been ruled out so it'll be an all-hands-on-deck situation for the Wizards tonight. Beal played in a career-low 55 games this season and he's conceded that he may have a minute-limit for the rest of his career, so his stock will tumble in fantasy drafts next year.
Apr 13 - 7:24 PM

Bradley Beal (pelvis) will not play on Monday vs. the Nets.

This isn't really a surprise with the Wizards out of the playoff hunt. Beal probably won't play in the season finale either, as the Wizards have no incentive to play him at less than 100 percent. Marcus Thornton and Garrett Temple should pick up most of Beal's minutes.
Apr 11 - 6:41 PM

Bradley Beal (pelvis) is questionable for Monday against the Nets.

He's probably a little closer to doubtful in the final road game in a back-to-back set. The Wizards will likely want to get a longer look at rookie Kelly Oubre, but it's still tough to trust him in fantasy. Garrett Temple should also play a lot.
Apr 11 - 3:57 PM

Bradley Beal (sore pelvis) will not return to Sunday's game vs. the Hornets.

Not good. Beal missed a few games in March with a similar injury, so the Wizards may want to shut him down for the final two games of the season since they have nothing left to play for. He finished with three points, one rebound and one steal in eight minutes. Marcus Thornton started the second half and would be worth a look for the final two games of the season if Beal misses more time.
Apr 10 - 1:34 PM

Bradley Beal scored 25 points with six rebounds, three assists, six turnovers and two 3-pointers in 41 minutes against the Pistons during a Friday loss.

It'll be interesting to see what the Wizards do with Beal now. He's been healthy for almost a month now, but they might be careful with him now that they are out of the playoff hunt. His fantasy owners should plan on him playing the rest of the way, but keep an eye on his status in the final three games.
Apr 8 - 11:53 PM

Bradley Beal scored 25 points during a 121-103 win over the Nets on Wednesday, adding three rebounds, five assists, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers.

He was terrific with a 11-of-15 shooting line. Obviously not having John Wall (knee) tonight helped Beal in a favorable matchup. It's unknown what Wall's status will be for Friday night, but Wall did have a limp on Wednesday. The Wizards are clinging to their playoff lives and will be knocked out with their next loss or the Pistons' next win. The Wizards play the Pistons on Friday.
Apr 6 - 11:41 PM

Bradley Beal's shot was missing in action vs. the Clippers, as he went 2-of-16 from the field to finish with eight points, seven rebounds, four assists, two steals and two turnovers in 39 minutes.

Beal's poor shooting contributed to a 114-109 loss in L.A., leaving the Wizards on the brink of elimination from the playoffs. Six of his seven rebounds came on the offensive glass, but that's what happens when you shoot 12.5 percent on high-volume attempts. Randy Wittman ignored Beal's minute-limit tonight and it will be interesting to see if that's also the case vs. Brooklyn on Wednesday.
Apr 3 - 7:29 PM

Bradley Beal scored 21 points with one rebound, five assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes against the Suns on Friday.

That's three strong games in a row and four in his last five. In that five-game span, Beal averaged 18.4 points, 3.4 boards, 4.2 assists, 1.0 steals and 2.0 treys. He's back to being a must-start player again.
Apr 2 - 1:41 AM

Bradley Beal scored 24 points during a 120-111 loss to the Kings on Wednesday with four rebounds, four assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

This was a nice finish for him in an underwhelming March, averaging 15.5 points, 3.5 boards, 3.0 assists, 1.2 steals and 2.0 treys. As for the Wizards, they are now 3.5 games behind the Pacers for the No. 8 seed with the Pacers having a cupcake schedule in their next three (ORL, PHI, NY). Beal is still a must-start player while the Wizards are in the mix.
Mar 31 - 12:53 AM

Bradley Beal scored 17 points on 6-of-16 shooting vs. the Warriors on Tuesday, adding four assists, two boards, one steal and one 3-pointer.

The important thing to take away from tonight's game is that Beal played 31 minutes, so it's going to be interesting to see if he will be allowed to play in the second game of a back-to-back set on Wednesday vs. the Kings. If Beal is held out as a precaution, expect Garrett Temple, Ramon Sessions and Marcus Thornton to play more.
