Bradley Beal could return Wednesday against Mavericks

Randy Wittman didn't rule out the possibility the Wizards' shooting guard could be ready for the team's next game after his first full practice since injuring his wrist.

It has been nearly six weeks since Bradley Beal was sidelined with a broken wrist - and Washington Wizards fans may have only have 30 more hours to wait to see him back in action.

After Tuesday's practice, Wizards coach Randy Wittman said Beal's wrist wasn't sore - rather his body was due to returning to practice for the first time in nearly a month and a half.

The good news came in the form of a tweet from Washington Post reporter Jorge Castillo

Castillo also tweeted that Wittman didn't rule out the possibility Beal could play tomorrow when the Dallas Mavericks come into town.

On Monday, Beal returned to practice and went through a 60-plus minute full practice with the team without setbacks, setting the stage for a possible Nov. 21 return to play at home against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Beal will be evaluated again tomorrow morning after shootaround - and then the wait will be on until game time and knowing if he will return to the lineup or not.
