Injury status

UPDATE (Feb. 13):

Beal will suit up for Tuesday’s game against the Blazers.

Updated (Feb. 6): 

Beal’s status for Monday’s game against the Cavaliers is in doubt because of a foot injury.

Beal sat out Saturday’s game due to left foot soreness, allowing Corey Kispert to start in his place and increasing Kristaps Porzingis’ and Monte Morris’ minutes. If he misses work again on Monday, Kispert could be considered for use as a streaming option due to his similar performance.

Update (Feb. 04):

In Friday’s 124-116 loss to the Trail Blazers, Beal contributed 34 points (14-25 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, and one assist in 32 minutes of action.

The three-time all-star had a productive game, committing only two turnovers and making his shots look easy. His fantasy value as a shooting guard ranks in the top ten due to his high scoring output.

Update (Feb. 03):

According to Omari Sankofa II of the Detroit Free Press, Beal and the Wizards will not play on Wednesday against Detroit because of the Pistons’ delayed departure from Dallas due to inclement weather. However, Beal will be able to return to action until Friday’s game against the Trail Blazers.

In 30 minutes of action against the Spurs on Monday, the Wizards’ star scored 21 points (8-14 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), grabbed seven rebounds, dished out seven assists, and blocked two shots.

After missing the previous five games with a hamstring injury, Beal delivered his best fantasy performance in his sixth straight appearance. Beal hasn’t lived up to draft-day expectations because he’s missed 20 games this season and his minutes per game have dropped from 36.0 in 2021-22 to 32.8 so far in 2022-23, but his future prospects could be more promising now that the nagging hamstring issue appears to be behind him.

Update (Feb. 01):

Beal finished Monday’s 127-106 win over the Spurs with 21 points (8-14 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, seven assists, and two blocks in 30 minutes of play.

After being out for five games because of a hamstring injury, Beal played in his sixth game in a row and had his best fantasy game during that stretch.

Beal hasn’t lived up to what was expected of him when he was drafted, mostly because he has already missed 20 games this season and his minutes per game have dropped from 36.0 in 2021-22 to 32.8 so far in 2022-23. However, his future could be brighter now that his nagging hamstring problem seems to be over.

Even though his averages in all of the counting categories are down from last season, Beal has been able to make up for some of those drops by making a career-high percentage of shots from the field (51.2 percent).

Update (Jan. 28):

Bradley Beal provided 17 points (7-17 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three rebounds and four assists in 30 minutes during Wednesday’s 108-103 win over the Rockets.

Even though Beal didn’t shoot well, his contributions still helped Washington win. He has been very consistent lately. Since coming back from injury, he has scored at least 17 points in each of his four games and shot 47.5 percent from the field during that time.

Update (Jan. 21):

In 29 minutes against the Knicks on Wednesday, Bradley Beal (hamstring) scored 18 points (7-11 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-3 FT), added four rebounds, four assists, and one block.

While Beal was only able to suit up for the second time since Dec. 27 due to his hamstring injury, he was still able to deliver a productive performance in his return on January 3.

Beal’s encouraging performance in his return should give fantasy managers enough confidence to activate him ahead of Saturday’s matchup with the Magic, even if the Wizards look to keep him below the 35-minute mark for another game or two.

Update (Jan. 18):

Beal’s status against the Knicks on Wednesday is in doubt due to a hamstring injury.

Update (Jan. 16): 

Coach Wes Unseld Jr. said Bradley Beal’s (hamstring) status for Monday’s game against the Warriors is questionable.

The Washington Post’s Ava Wallace said that Beal took part in Sunday’s practice. However, because he hasn’t fully recovered from a left hamstring strain that kept him out of seven of the last eight games, the Wizards are giving him a designation for Monday’s game. Beal will likely be looked at again during warmups on Monday before the Wizards decide what to do about him before the game starts at 3 p.m. ET.

Update (Jan. 13):

Beal (hamstring) was given the green light to participate in full basketball activities on Thursday. His return date will depend on how he continues to heal.

Update (Jan. 11):

Bradley Beal has been diagnosed with a low-grade left hamstring injury and will miss the team’s next three games before being re-evaluated in approximately one week.

Update (Jan. 3):

Beal (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Tuesday’s game against the Bucks.

Update (Jan. 1):

Beal (hamstring) is questionable for the Bucks game on Sunday.
