Wizards’ Beal Sidelined for Two Weeks with Leg Injury
WASHINGTON (AP) — Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal has another stress injury in his right leg and will be sidelined for at least two weeks.
The team announced Tuesday that Beal felt sore and had an MRI, which diagnosed the problem in his proximal right fibula. In the spring, a stress injury to his distal right fibula caused the 6-foot-5, 203-pound Beal to miss the final eight games of his rookie season.
Beal leads the NBA in minutes per game, averaging 40.2. He is also averaging 20.6 points, 4.2 rebounds and 3.5 assists.
The 20-year-old Beal was the No. 3 overall pick in the 2012 draft.
The Wizards host the Los Angeles Lakers Tuesday night.
