Wizards without G Beal, F Seraphin against Cavaliers

WASHINGTON (AP) The Wizards are without guard Bradley Beal and forward Kevin Seraphin against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Beal is sitting out a fourth consecutive game Friday night with a right leg injury, while Seraphin has been ruled out with what the team says are flu-like symptoms.

Newly acquired guard Ramon Sessions is available after flying to town Friday, a day after the trade that brought him to Washington from the Sacramento Kings.

Otto Porter starts in place of Beal.

Wizards coach Randy Wittman says ”things are progressing really good” for Beal, and that doctors gave him the go-ahead to ”do some shooting and running and stuff.”

Wittman says Beal does not have any pain and he doesn’t anticipate the guard will be out for very much longer.
