Bradley Beal's minutes will increase starting Saturday, according to report

It sounds like the 30-minute restriction will be ending soon.

Bradley Beal's 30-minute game limit following a stress injury in his leg that knocked him out for two weeks in December will likely be ending beginning on Saturday, according to CSN Washington's J Michael. The decision was made after Beal underwent an MRI and found that his lower right leg was improving.

Beal has been on the 30-minute limit since returning from the injury on December 16. This has occasionally annoyed Randy Wittman because Beal has been forced to sit in critical junctures at times to adhere to that limit.

It sounds like there will be some restrictions on Beal's minutes, but the exact number will not be clear until the training staff talks to Wittman. Anything to prevent him from running Beal into the ground like he did early in the season is fine by me.

In other news, Beal was invited to participate in the three-point shootout, but isn't sure he'll accept until he knows he is healthy enough to compete. You'd be surprised how much the event can take out of your legs.
