Bradley Beal, John Wall active with Wizards

But the Wizards are still competing and have found support from outside the bubble. Bradley Beal and John Wall, the team’s cornerstone players who stayed home to recover from injuries, are watching daily practices and still participating in meetings and team group chats, sources said. The Wizards have set up live video links to practices and meetings for players and staff who are not in the bubble, sources said. Davis Bertans, who opted out of the restart due to health concerns and his pending free agency, has also been active on the live links, sources said.

Bradley Beal sent some tweets last week that suggested he had seen his lack of early All-NBA votes from national writers. On Sunday, he gave his full thoughts on the matter while serving as a guest analyst on the Wizards-Nets broadcast on NBC Sports Washington. Beal seems to be most confused by the voting process which is based on the opinion of media members. “I honestly feel like I should be on there. Granted, I understand why if you are going to factor in winning. We haven’t won. From that standpoint, I get it. But other than that, I don’t see any argument,” he said.
The only thing better than NBA player comparisons are really old NBA player comparisons. They’re almost never right. During his guest appearance on the NBC Sports Washington broadcast for Wizards vs. Nets, Bradley Beal was informed of Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski calling him a “more athletic JJ Redick,” during his days at Chaminade College Preparatory School. “That’s a funny comparison,” Beal said. “That’s a good comparison, I’m not mad at it because growing up, JJ was my favorite player at Duke. So I respect that.”
Justin Kubatko: CJ McCollum made his 1,000th career 3-pointer this afternoon. He reached that mark in his 474th career game. Only six players have done so faster: 1️⃣ 369 – Stephen Curry 2️⃣ 372 – Klay Thompson 3️⃣ 385 – Damain Lillard 4️⃣ 457 – Dennis Scott 5️⃣ 460 – Bradley Beal 6️⃣ 473 – Ray Allen
The rumors about a Beal trade have been persistent, but not much has changed. He is not ready to demand a deal and the Wizards are committed to keeping him. Ideally, the team would get John Wall back, work their Wall-Beal guard pairing back into shape with some of the young players they’ve brought in—Rui Hachimura, Moe Wagner, Troy Brown—and show Beal there is a future with the Wiz. But the condensed 2020-21 season will put a monkey wrench into that. Western Conference GM: “They’ve been adamant that they are not trading Bradley Beal. We have not asked about him but others have, they let it be known, he is not going anywhere. But you have to think that will change eventually as we get close to the deadline. They gave him an extension and that kicked the can down the road on making decisions but, you know, the road got shortened because of the coronavirus.”

Rodriguez, who last starred with the Yankees, and fiancée Lopez have put $300 million of their own money toward the bid. Other investors include future Hall of Fame offensive lineman Joe Thomas, who spent his entire career with the Cleveland Browns, two-time NBA All-Star Bradley Beal from the Washington Wizards, and Denver Nuggets center Mason Plumlee. “Being a former athlete and having a chance to be a part of a group trying to purchase a professional team, it’s pretty cool,” Urlacher told ESPN on Monday. “It’s especially cool to be involved with Alex. Alex is the man. You’ve got Kelce, Joe Thomas, DeMarco Murray. It’s great to be in a group with them.”
Bradley Beal had 31 points that night, but the Wizards were Wall’s show. He possessed the ball for 11 minutes per game that series while Beal was a distant second on the team, averaging only 2.8 minutes. Wall had the ball in his hands for more minutes per game than any player in the NBA from 2013-14 to 2018-19, per NBA Advanced Stats. Wall was the star and Beal was the sidekick, and though there wasn’t always harmony between the two, or even among the team at large, the hierarchy worked. The Wizards made four postseason appearances, and at one point were seen as one of the NBA’s rising young teams.

This season, Beal took command. With Wall out since December 2018 due to Achilles injuries, Beal averaged 30.5 points and 6.1 assists with a 57.9 true shooting percentage this season, numbers that have been exceeded in a single season by only Oscar Robertson, Michael Jordan, and James Harden. But the Wizards have treaded water at 24-40, and though they made the cut to resume play in Orlando later this month, their season is basically over: Wall, Beal (rotator cuff injury), and breakthrough stretch big Davis Bertans (free agency) will all sit out the restart. To qualify for the postseason play-in tournament, the Wizards would need to win two or more games than the Nets or Magic with only eight games to play. Good luck doing that when Ish Smith, Troy Brown Jr., and Rui Hachimura are your new Big Three.
“Bradley did everything possible to be ready to play, but after closely monitoring his individual workouts we came to the conclusion that it was best for him to sit out the upcoming games in Orlando and avoid the risk of further injury,” said Wizards General Manager Tommy Sheppard. “Although he was able to play through the majority of the season with the injury, the layoff from March until now did not leave any of us feeling comfortable that he would have enough time to be ready to perform at the extremely high level we are all accustomed to seeing and agreed that not participating in the games in Orlando was the right decision.”
Beal experienced discomfort with his shoulder early in the season and worked with the team’s medical and performance staff to manage the injury. The symptoms worsened over the course of the hiatus and he began to rehabilitate the injury with the intent of returning to play. He will not travel with the team to Orlando and will continue his rehabilitation process over the summer. “This was a difficult decision and one that I did not take lightly as the leader of this team,” said Beal. “I wanted to help my teammates compete for a playoff spot in Orlando, but also understand that this will be best for all of us in the long term. I appreciate the support of my teammates, the fans and the entire organization and look forward to returning next season to continue the progress we have made.”
Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal said players are concerned about being isolated on a campus where their leaving is discouraged. If a person on campus leaves, the person is subject to more testing and additional quarantine time. “We can’t just leave,” Beal said. “We can’t just order whatever food we want. We can’t just do activities which we want to do. We can’t go to our teammate’s room. There’s a lot of (expletive) we can’t do. It’s tough. I get it from a mental wellness standpoint.”

Brooks, though, said Beal is slated to travel with the team for its scheduled flight on Tuesday pending his coronavirus test result. “No final decision,” Brooks said when asked if Beal had decided on whether to play. “We are all still day by day. “He’s looking great. His physical condition has been pretty good and continues to improve every day, along with our other guys. We are all getting tested every day and as of right now, he’s a go, and we are all going down there ready to compete and get better and play to get in a playoff position. He looks great.”
Washington Wizards rookie Rui Hachimura was among the players on Friday that marched from Capital One Arena to the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial in Washington, D.C. to help raise awareness for police brutality and racism. Hachimura joined with Wizards teammates John Wall and Bradley Beal in the two-plus mile march to help spark social justice reform on Juneteenth, a holiday that celebrates the Emancipation Proclamation, issued by President Abraham Lincoln to free enslaved people in Confederate states. In addition to the three Wizards players, members of the Washington Mystics, including Natasha Cloud, were also on hand.
