If you had “Third day of training camp” as the first day where multiple Wizards players would not participate in practice, come on down to our office to collect your prize. According to multiple reports, Bradley Beal and Markieff Morris did not participate on Thursday after getting hurt on Wednesday:
Brad Beal did not practice today and is not at the gym. He took an elbow to the head yesterday and was diagnosed with mild concussion.— Candace Buckner (@CandaceDBuckner) September 29, 2016
The good news here is both injuries appear to be minor, and hopefully Beal and Thornton won’t have to miss much time. Still, anytime you hear that Bradley Beal is injured it’s going to lead to a certain level of fret for Wizards fans that just won’t go away until we don’t have to talk about Bradley Beal injuries for a few solid months.
In the meantime, let’s get Ian Mahinmi some cushy elbow pads to wear during practice. Actually, let’s get everyone some cushy elbow pads. We can’t be too safe at this point.
