Wizards superstar G Bradley Beal is questionable for tonight’s game against the Pacers. Beal is dealing with a bruised right hip that has been nagging him. This isn’t a serious injury as it’s just a bruise and it will depend on Beal’s tolerance to play through pain. Continue to monitor his status as game time draws near.

Notes 
 Though Durant missed the entire 2019 -20 season, you couldn't tell based on his elite performance in his Nets debut. The Slim Reaper led Brooklyn to the playoffs with a 27/7/5 line that included 2.4 triples, 1.3 swats, and lights-out shooting. As long as he's healthy, it's safe to expect more of the same in 21-22.
Zachary Hanshew - FantasyPros
Beal finished with a career-high 31.3 points per game in 20-21, narrowly missing his second-straight scoring title while being edged out by Steph Curry. He understandably took a step back in the assists department with Russell Westbrook on the team, but Beal still ended the year with a 31/4/4 line that included 2.2 triples and 1.2 steals to go with elite shooting. Those numbers were good for a top-12 finish in per-game average, and with Westbrook gone, expect an uptick in assists and potentially a new career high in scoring. Beal is a first-round guy, though he's often being drafted in the early second round, making him a clear value selection.
