The latest injury status of Bradley Beal
Status: Game Time Decision
UPADTED (Feb. 11):
On Saturday, Beal will take the court to face the Pacers.
UPADTED (Feb. 6):
Beal has been dealing with a foot injury and may not play against the Cavaliers on Monday.
On Saturday, Beal sat out due to soreness in his left foot, giving Corey Kispert a start and expanding Kristaps Porzingis’ and Monte Morris’ playing time. Kispert, who has been similarly effective, could replace him as a streaming option if he fails to show up to work on Monday.
UPDATE (Feb. 04):
Bradley Beal will be in action this coming Saturday.
Wizards star scored 34 points on 14-of-25 shooting from the field (4-of-10 from 3-point range) to go along with three boards and an assist in 32 minutes of Friday’s 124-116 loss to the Trail Blazers.
The three-time all-star played well, committing just two turnovers while making his shot look effortless. Due to his high scoring output, his fantasy value as a shooting guard is among the highest in the league.
UPDATE (Feb. 03):
Beal will be able to play against the Trail Blazers on Friday.
The Wizards’ leading scorer scored 21 points (8-14 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT) in 30 minutes against the Spurs on Monday, and he also added seven rebounds, seven assists, and two blocks.
Beal’s best fantasy performance came in his sixth consecutive game after he missed the previous five with a hamstring injury. Although Beal hasn’t lived up to draft-day expectations so far, his future may be brighter now that the nagging hamstring issue appears to be behind him. Beal has missed 20 games this season, and his minutes per game have dropped from 36.0 in 2021-22 to 32.8 so far in 2022-23.
UPDATE (Feb. 01):
In 30 minutes of action against the Spurs on Monday, Beal scored 21 points (8-14 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), pulled down seven rebounds, dished out seven assists, and blocked two shots.
Beal played in his sixth consecutive game after missing five with a hamstring injury and had his best fantasy game in that time.
Beal hasn’t lived up to the hype surrounding his draft status, in large part due to the fact that he’s missed 20 games this season and seen a drop from 36.0 to 32.8 minutes per game. Now that his hamstring injury appears to be resolved, however, the future looks more promising for him.
Beal’s field goal percentage is at a career high, which helps compensate for the fact that his averages in all of the counting categories are down from last season (51.2 percent).
UPDATE (Jan. 28):
In the Wizards’ 108-103 victory over the Rockets on Wednesday, Bradley Beal played 30 minutes and contributed 17 points (7-17 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three rebounds, and four assists.
Beal’s contributions were still crucial to Washington’s victory despite his poor shooting. He’s been remarkably reliable recently. In the four games he has played since returning from injury, he has averaged 17 points per game while shooting 47.5% from the field.
UPDATE (Jan. 21):
On Wednesday, Bradley Beal (hamstring) played 29 minutes against the Knicks and scored 18 points (7-11 FG, 1-0 3Pt, 3-3 FT), had four rebounds, four assists, and one block.
Due to his hamstring injury, Beal has only been able to play twice since December 27. However, he was still able to have a good game when he came back on January 3.
Beal’s good performance in his first game back should give fantasy players enough confidence to start him against the Magic on Saturday, even if the Wizards want to keep him under 35 minutes for another game or two.
UPDATE (Jan. 18):
Beal’s hamstring injury has made his status against the Knicks on Wednesday questionable.
UPDATE (Jan. 16):
The Wizards will need Bradley Beal to play against the Warriors on Monday, but his hamstring injury has made his availability uncertain.
Beal reportedly participated in Sunday’s practice, as reported by Ava Wallace of the Washington Post. The Wizards are giving him a designation for Monday’s game because he still isn’t 100 percent after suffering a left hamstring strain seven games ago.
Before the Wizards make their decision about Beal for Monday’s 3 p.m. ET game, they will likely take another look at him during warmups.
UPDATE (Jan. 13):
Beal (hamstring) resumed full basketball activities Thursday and will return based on his progress.
UPDATE (Jan. 11):
Beal reinjured his hamstring in Tuesday’s 123-113 loss to the Bucks, after he had missed the previous three games. He has been diagnosed with a low-grade left hamstring injury and will miss the team’s next three games before being re-evaluated in approximately one week.
UPDATE (Jan. 3):
Beal (hamstring) is doubtful for Tuesday’s game against the Bucks.
UPDATE (Jan. 01):
Beal (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Bucks.
