The news that Bradley Beal will need to sit for at least two weeks after reinjuring his right leg is definitely not good. For what it's worth, though, Beal himself doesn't think this is nearly as bad as the injury he suffered last season.

Speaking at shootaround before Tuesday's game with the Lakers, Beal expressed optimism that he'll be fine with a couple weeks of rest.

The folks I've talked to within the organization expressed a similar sentiment -- "cautiously optimistic," one texted -- and the hope is that rest, as well as a closer look at Beal's gait for any irregularities, will help the injury heal.

But we've also heard similar quotes before from other Wizards that have been hurt, only to see the injury linger and/or get worse. I wouldn't blame you if you were skeptical.
