It remains to be seen how long Bradley Beal will sit after reinjuring his ankle in the Wizards' 88-79 win over the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday. Randy Wittman did confirm that Beal's ankle "turned over," but that's about it.
"Bradley gets hurt again, the same ankle again. We'll have to see where he is in the next couple days," Wittman said.
John Wall didn't have any update on Beal's status either, but he noted that the injury especially stinks because Beal was not completely healthy even after he returned to the lineup.
"It was tough because, even when he came back, he was fighting, still dealing with it. You could tell," Wall said. "Coming off pick and rolls and dribbling, he couldn't really explode like he wanted to."
It does make you wonder if it makes more sense to sit Beal for a significant amount of time rather than try to rush him back for the end of the year. Coaches like seeing players learn how to deal with nicks and bruises, but it seems like this injury has gotten beyond that stage.

It apparently didn't take long for Bradley Beal to reinjure the tender left ankle that caused him to miss six games earlier this month. Beal came down awkwardly while trying to block a breakaway layup by Shannon Brown and had to leave the game with the Wizards down by seven early in the fourth quarter.
Beal committed a turnover and was racing to contest Brown's layup when he didn't land cleanly on his ankle. He rolled on the ground for several moments, pounding the floor repeatedly as if he was in serious pain. Luckily for the Wizards, he was able to walk off to the locker room on his own power, but it's never good when a body part is reinjured.
Beal had looked tentative since returning from the injury in the Wizards' home win over the Suns last Saturday. He had been coming off the bench since making his return. The injury originally occurred March 3 against the Philadelphia 76ers.
UPDATE: Beal will not return tonight.
