Bradley Beal's wrist is recovering nicely

After begrudgingly missing four games with a wrist injury, it looks like Bradley Beal might be back in the lineup soon. He missed the three-game road trip last week, and he missed the first game of this homestand last night. Garrett Temple has started in his place, substituting Temple's defense for Beal's offense during his time on the sideline.

Randy Wittman spoke a bit after practice today about tomorrow night's game agains the Knicks and about Beal's recovery. Beal engaged in the team's non-contact practice today, and Coach Wittman had the following to say about his recovery:

He did [practice] some today. We didn't do any contact today. He did shooting; he got out and shot. He's still sore, you can tell. ...It's the first day he has come out and been able to get his wrist going again, so obviously we're headed in the right direction.

According to Jeremy Hyman of, it's possible that Beal is back in the lineup as soon as tomorrow night against New York.
