G - WAS - OUT
Bradley Beal is leaning towards re-signing with the Washington Wizards this offseason.
Beal has a player option for next season, but if he opts out of it, that makes him eligible to sign a 5-year, $246M deal with Washington. When asked if it is fair to assume that he's leaning towards resigning with the team, the veteran guard said 'that's fair'. Look for him and the team to push for a new deal this offseason.
Per Adrian Wojnarowski, Bradley Beal plans on undergoing season-ending surgery
After being ruled out for "at least" till the All-Star break with a wrist injury, Beal plans to now undergo season-ending surgery on his wrist. With the Wizards in firm grasp of a playoff spot, the news comes as a sad one for the team. Kyle Kuzma becomes the biggest beneficiary for fantasy purposes as he's seeing 34+ minutes nightly. The move should also clear the way for Rui Hachimura and Daniel Gafford to see more minutes in the rotation.
Per Adrian Wojnarowski, Bradley Beal has seen a specialist regarding his recent left wrist injury. Beal has been experiencing swelling and some pain in his wrist. He will be re-evaluated in approximately a week.
Beal will miss at least this upcoming week, however, the good news is that it doesn't appear to be too severe. The team has not put a timeline on the injury, but the intitial diagnosis doesn't seem to think Beal will be missing an extended time frame. While Beal is out, expect Corey Kispert and Deni Avdija to fill up his minutes on the wings.
Bradley Beal will miss at least the next two games for the Wizards due to a left wrist sprain.
With their leading scorer now out, Washington will turn to Kyle Kuzma to handle the bulk of the offensive work. Meanwhile, Spencer Dinwiddie and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope should have a bit more fantasy upside until Beal returns.
Beal posted just nine points (2/11 FG, 0/1 3PT, 5/7 FT) two rebounds and 12 assists in Washington's 115-95 loss to Memphis.
Beal's lackluster performance marks his first time not scoring double-digit points all season. Beal and the Wizards will look to get back on track Tuesday in an away matchup against the Bucks.
