Pregame Notes

The Washington Wizards have been hit with injury after injury this season. Now to top it off Bradley Beal is on the injury report as questionable with a right leg injury. Beal is the leading scorer for Washington averaging 27.8 points per game. Most likely Beal will be a game-time decision as to not prolong the injury any more or make it worse. Beal left the game in the fourth quarter in their loss to the New York Knicks.

Washington definitely haven’t been able to capitalize on wins this season especially against opponents you would call “easy”. Now facing Miami who’s on a hot streak it’ll be tough for Washington to get it together especially without Wizards leading scorer Beal. As Jordan McRae clearly stated, it’ll be “30 points we don’t have.”
