Washington Wizards Rumors
Ava Wallace: Scott Brooks says he’s been told Beal’s back tightness is not related to his hip injury. “Don’t think it’s going to be lasting, I’m hoping that a day off today and a day off tomorrow, he’ll be back against Utah… that’s the hope.”
Chase Hughes: Scott Brooks says Russell Westbrook comes to the practice facility “every off-day” and often returns each night to get treatment and put up shots. “[His teammates] see that, they hear about it.”
Fred Katz: Scott Brooks says Bradley Beal’s back injury is not related to the hip injury he’s been dealing with. Brooks says he doesn’t think the back injury is going to be lasting, that he could be back Monday.
Fred Katz: Bradley Beal on his back: “It was hurting during the game and kinda limited me from stuff I wanted to do…He said it wasn’t anything crazy or broken. Figured it was a spasm…I told the staff I’d just duke this out and we’d worry about tomorrow tomorrow.”
