Chris Miller: Bradley Beal is OUT tonight vs. @Utah Jazz fully expect him to play tomorrow at Denver #WizardsTalk
Bradley Beal, who wasn't with the Wizards for their third consecutive loss at the Portland Trail Blazers on Wednesday, is expected to join the team for Friday's game at the Utah Jazz and Saturday's at the Denver Nuggets, CSNmidatlantic.com has been told by a team official.
Bradley Beal didn't travel with the Wizards when they left this morning to start a three-game road trip that begins Tuesday vs. the Portland Trail Blazers, a team official told CSNmidatlantic.com.
Beal, 22, was diagnosed with a sprained pelvis and didn’t return. He declined to speak to the media after the game and the team didn’t have an update on his status. Beal has missed 21 games this season because a shoulder injury, a stress reaction in his right fibula and a concussion. Washington’s second-leading scorer, Beal is expected to travel with the team to Portland Monday for Washington’s three-game road trip, but whether he will play Tuesday against the Trail Blazers is uncertain. Garrett Temple would return to the starting lineup if Beal is ruled out. Temple tallied 11 points on 5-of-7 shooting in 26 minutes Saturday, shooting 24.6 percent from the field and 24.1 percent from three-point range. He has also shot 58.3 percent from the free throw line in his 10 starts since the break.
