John Wall may be passing on the dunk contest, but the Wizards could still have a player in one of the marquee Saturday night events. Bradley Beal was invited to participate in the Three-Point Shootout and is leaning towards accepting, pending a positive review from his doctors about his troublesome right leg.
Brad Beal will meet with docs to determine if he does 3-pt shootout but added, "I'm probably leaning more towards doing it." #wizards— Michael Lee (@MrMichaelLee) February 3, 2014
Beal is also slated to participate in Friday's Rising Stars Challenge, depending on his health. His 30-minute limit for the stress injury in his right leg was lifted prior to Saturday's win over the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Whether Beal actually participates in the Three-Point Shootout will be determined on Thursday, when the participants are announced. Kyrie Irving should be back to defend his title, and Marco Belinelli of the Spurs has already told reporters that he will be in the six-man field.
