Bradley Beal has missed the last two games thanks to an inflamed right toe that he aggravated last Thursday against the Hornets. Unfortunately, that's not the only issue he's dealing with, as we learned today when the Wizards sent out the following press release:

Wizards guard Bradley Beal will miss tonight's game at Toronto. Beal missed the last two games with a sore right big toe and subsequent examinations revealed a mild stress reaction in his lower right fibula. He will be re-evaluated following the All-Star break.

Beal has averaged 15.0 points, 3.8 rebounds and 3.0 assists while shooting .436 from three-point range in 42 games for the Wizards this season.

As you may recall, Bradley Beal has dealt with similar issues before. He missed the last few weeks of his rookie season with a fibula stress injury in 2013. He missed time last season after injuring a different part of his leg, which he later said may have been the result of playing too many minutes. So if you're keeping score at home, Beal has had fibula issues in each of his three seasons in the NBA.

The good news is that the All Star break could not have come at a better time for Beal and the team. After Wednesday's game, the Wizards don't play again until the 20th.
