Bradley Beal 'did a little' at practice, return date still up in the air
Bradley Beal has not played in an NBA game since he suffered a shoulder injury against the Atlanta Hawks nearly two weeks ago.
Since, the Washington Wizards have experienced a mini tailspin. Outside of a blowout victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night, there's been very little to smile about. But Beal's return should help right the ship.
Here's more on the situation, via The Washington Post's Jorge Castillo:
Before the injury, Beal was averaging 22.7 points per game, nailing a crazy 47.1 percent of his threes. He permits the type of breathing room Washington really needs right now.
Coach Randy Wittman explained Beal “did a little” Thursday and did not dismiss the possibility of the 22-year-old guard practicing fully Friday in preparation for the Wizards’ meeting with the Detroit Pistons on Saturday in Michigan, which opens the door for him to return to game action two weeks after sustaining the injury. “We have to see how he is from the little bit he did today and see where he is from a soreness standpoint and go from there,” Wittman said.
