Bradley Beal likely to miss next two Wizards games

New, comments

The odds of a Washington Wizards' victory over the San Antonio Spurs or Memphis Grizzlies just got a lot longer.

The Washington Post's Michael Lee reports that shooting guard Bradley Beal will continue to rest his ailing right wrist and is expected to miss Washington's next two games.

"He's day-to-day. We'll have to see how it progresses," Coach Randy Wittman said of Beal.

Beal, who had been struggling since a hard fall in Denver on Jan. 18, will likely miss the next two road games against Memphis on Friday and San Antonio on Saturday. He averaged just 8.8 points while shooting 35.7 percent from the floor (20 of 56) and 30 percent (6 of 20) from beyond the three-point line since the injury.

The timing couldn't be more inconvenient for the Wizards. The team has struggled to score all season, especially when Beal has been out of the line up or suffering through shooting slumps. Beal's backup, Jordan Crawford, has struggled to adjust to a new role since John Wall returned and could be more aggressive than normal if he's given additional minutes.
