Bradley Beal hasn't had the best 2015-16 season so far due to injuries. His latest setback happened on Monday when he suffered a broken nose and a concussion in a game against the Boston Celtics.
Fortunately, Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post reported on Thursday that Beal intends on playing tonight.

Beal said he’s going to play tonight. He’ll have a mask on. Said he never broke his nose or had a concussion before.— Jorge Castillo (@jorgeccastillo) January 28, 2016
However, J. Michael of CSN Washington says that that isn't a guarantee.
A team official said Beal has NOT passed every concussion protocol step. Could play. Not a lock #WizardsTalk #NBA @CSNWizards #WizNuggets— J. Michael (@JMichaelCSN) January 28, 2016
The good news is that Beal's latest injuries aren't related to his lower right fibula. In addition, his latest injury isn't as serious as initially feared.
Whether he plays tonight or not, here's hoping that Beal doesn't suffer more injuries in a season where the Wizards had a few too many of them already.
