A lot of Wizards players are injured right now. Here are some updates on them.
Martell Webster apparently practiced at close to full speed without any sort of brace on his left ankle, which he injured in Friday's loss to the Bucks. As of right now, it sounds like he's likely to play against the Hawks Friday.
Per Wittman, if Webster has no setbacks between now and Friday, he could be available to play Fri night #WizHawks— Washington Wizards (@WashWizards) December 11, 2013
Bradley Beal, on the other hand, isn't likely to play until next week. That said, he did go through a portion of practice, which is a very good sign. That portion didn't involve any full-court work, though, so don't get your hopes up quite yet.
Meanwhile, Beal's description of his injury last April does not in any way, shape or form sound like just a "stress injury."
Beal was relieved injury was caught early. Said last April he had "crack in my bone" & was "on the verge of" ending up like UL's Kevin Ware— Michael Lee (@MrMichaelLee) December 11, 2013
No wonder it took three months to heal.
Meanwhile, Nene didn't practice, which isn't really a surprise at this point. There's no word on his status.
