Bradley Beal (wrist) said he is no longer wearing a cast on his broken wrist.

He's still about a month away since being diagnosed back on Oct. 11. Beal has dealt with multiple fractures in his career, so he's becoming a bit fragile. Still, he's one of the best shooting guards in the NBA and fantasy owners shouldn't let him fall too far in their drafts.

The Wizards have officially picked up Bradley Beal's fourth-year contract option, keeping him in Washington through the 2015-16 season.

Beal is targeting a return in late-November after fracturing a bone in his left wrist this week. His absence temporarily opens up more SG minutes for Glen Rice Jr., Otto Porter and even Garrett Temple, and forces fantasy owners to bump Beal back a round or two on draft day.
Oct 14 - 5:50 PM

Bradley Beal (wrist surgery) will wear a soft cast on his left wrist for 10 days before he can resume working out.

Beal's original timetable of six weeks would have him returning to the court around Thanksgiving and this new does nothing to push that timetable back. While missing a month of the regular season won't help his fantasy value, Beal still has enough upside to warrant a middle-to-late round pick in drafts. Glen Rice Jr. should see a big uptick in minutes with Beal out and is worth a late-round pick in standard leagues after a strong Summer League performance.

Bradley Beal is expected to miss six weeks after having surgery on Sunday to repair a non-displaced fracture in his left wrist.

The injury was to the scaphoid bone in Beal's non-shooting wrist. A return in exactly six weeks, on Nov. 23, would cause Beal to miss the first 12 games of the season. This takes a significant chunk out of his fantasy value, but his late-season upside makes him worth a look after the middle rounds. Glen Rice Jr. should take on plenty of minutes at SG with Beal and Martell Webster (back surgery) both on the sidelines to start the season.

Bradley Beal underwent surgery to repair a non-displaced facture of the scaphoid bone on his left (non-shooting) wrist on Sunday, and will likely be sidelined for two months.

Glen Rice Jr. will likely enter the starting lineup, and he makes for an intriguing late round selection in standard leagues after an impressive Summer League performance. Beal will be risky mid-round selection in standard leagues.

Bradley Beal has suffered a non-displaced fracture of the scaphoid bone in his left (non-shooting) wrist that will require surgery

This is devastating news for the Wizards as Beal could miss 6-8 weeks depending on the timetable that will be announced following his surgery on Monday. If he were to miss 6-8 weeks, Glen Rice Jr. would be an intriguing add late in standard drafts after he had an incredible summer league performance. Beal has now become an even riskier pick in standard formats.

Bradley Beal sprained his left wrist on Friday against the Hornets and will not return.

It doesn't sound serious at this time, but wrist injuries can be tricky. Beal has dealt with a slew of injuries in his time with the Wizards, so hopefully he's OK. Stay tuned.

Bradley Beal continued his war of words with Cavaliers guard Dion Waiters.

After Beal and teammate John Wall proclaimed themselves the best backcourt in the league, Dion Waiters proclaimed, "That's nonsense." When asked about Waiters' comment, Beal replied, ""I’m just gonna say November 21, man." While this back-and-forth has all the makings of a WWE undercard, the third-year guard has a chance to emerge as a fantasy star in 2014-15 if he can stay healthy. Coming off a season in which he averaged 17.1 points, 3.7 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 1.0 steals, and 1.9 three-pointers, Beal enters 2014-15 as a mid-round fantasy selection who provides his owners with quite a bit of upside.

Bradley Beal spoke highly of Paul Pierce in a recent interview, stating that he’s eager to learn from the decorated veteran.

"He’s experienced, he’s won a championship before, so he has that mentality and that killer instinct that I think we need on our team," said Beal. "He has that little cockiness and arrogance that we need, and that little smack-talking that I can probably learn from as well. I’m definitely looking forward to playing with him and learning a lot of things." The Wizards lost Trevor Ariza in free agency, but found a solid replacement in Pierce. While Pierce isn't quite the same defensive stalwart that Ariza is, he has a more polished offensive game, and the Wizards will be an exciting team to watch next season.

John Wall is expected to spend more time with Bradley Beal this offseason.

The two are expected to workout together in Washington and St. Louis. Wall and Beal are arguably the best young backcourt in the NBA and both grew as ball-handlers last season. Beal is just 20 years old and still has plenty of room to grow, making him a very interesting target in fantasy leagues.

Bradley Beal played 43 minutes during Thursday's season-ending 93-80 loss to the Pacers on Thursday, scoring 16 points with three boards, four assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers.

The Wizards just couldn't knock down open shots, making just 2-of-18 from beyond the arc. Plus, their halfcourt offense was a mess and they rarely got clean looks at the hoop. As for Beal, he blossomed as a ball handler a bit in the postseason and he'll look to make another leap in his third season next fall.

Bradley Beal banged his knee during Sunday's Game 4 defeat, but he said the injury "wasn't a factor" during the fourth quarter.

Beal finished with a team-high 20 points, two 3-pointers, five rebounds, five assists and three steals. He also turned the ball over just once in 42 minutes while being defended by Paul George, but scored only three of his points in the fourth quarter as the Wizards blew a double-digit lead for the 12th time this year.

Bradley Beal scored a team-high 20 points with two 3-pointers, five rebounds, five assists and three steals in Game 4, but the Wizards fell at home and will face elimination during Game 5 on Tuesday.

Beal made 7-of-14 FGs and only turned the ball over once in a team-high 42 minutes. Trevor Ariza added 16 points, nine rebounds and three steals, and Washington's veteran bench acquitted itself well, but the Wizards were out-rebounded and struggled to defend the 3-point line in a disappointing home loss.
