There was a scary moment at Washington Wizards practice on Monday, as rookie guard Bradley Beal injured his ankle as the media was watching. However, he was able to walk off on his own power, and the injury doesn't appear serious.
Here are some reports from practice:
Beal seemed to run into a Vesely screen w his right leg & then, off-balanced, planted & tweaked his left leg. We will see...— Kyle Weidie (@Truth_About_It) October 22, 2012
Appears to be just an ankle tweak for Beal, and he did walk it off. Nothing further for now but was scary. #Wizards— Craig Stouffer (@CraigStouffer) October 22, 2012
Thinking is Beal tweaked his left ankle. Left practice w/ trainer in tow, but left walking. Wittman didn't appear to be freaked or anything.— Ben Standig (@BenStandig) October 22, 2012
If Beal walked off and Wittman "didn't appear to be freaked," then this is probably a false alarm. Nevertheless, we're always conditioned to expect the worst when it comes to Wizards injuries. Hopefully, Beal is indeed OK.
