Wizards nation might be breathing a sigh of relief tonight. It appears as though Bradley Beal's knee injury isn't as bad as we all feared it would be.

According to Jeff Goodman at ESPN, Beal suffered a bruised left knee in the 4th quarter of the game against Minnesota last night. Here's the tweet with the news:

If you were watching last night, Beal's knee appeared to buckle after a hard screen on a play during the fourth quarter. He fell down in a heap, and he had to be helped off the floor. It was an ugly fall, and it looked scary. Thankfully, it doesn't appear to be anything more severe. Goodman, per his source, says there's a chance Beal might even play tonight.

We'll update you with more information as we get it.

UPDATE: Sounds like there's a good chance Beal plays tonight.
