  • Scary moment at practice yesterday: Bradley Beal went down after a screen from Jan Vesely and stayed on the ground clutching his leg. However, he was able to walk off on his own power, and therefore appears to be OK. We'll see if he plays in either of the final two preseason games.

  • The Wizards get a couple mentions on the annual NBA GMs survey. John Wall got 6.7 percent of the vote in the "fastest with the ball" category, while Bradley Beal got 6.7 percent of the vote for the "which rookie will be the best in five years" question. In addition, Kevin Seraphin and Jan Vesely were both mentioned among international players who could break out next year. Keep in mind that GMs cannot vote for someone on their roster, so these votes came from other teams. []
