Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal hasn’t appeared in game for the Wizards since December 9th, but he appears to be close to returning, and it could begin with returning this weekend.
CHICAGO – Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal, sidelined since Dec. 11 because of a stress reaction in his right fibula, said Monday that he hopes to return either Friday against the Indiana Pacers or Saturday against the Boston Celtics.
Beal joined the Wizards on their two-game road trip to Orlando and Chicago to rev up his workload and said he could begin contact activity Tuesday when the Wizards return to Washington.
“Maybe tomorrow when we get back,” Beal said as he walked off the United Center floor after Washington’s shoot-around Monday morning.
Beal has been the Wizards leading scorer so far this year at a career-high 19.8 points per game to go along with 4.7 rebounds and 3.2 assists.
