Wizards Lose Bradley Beal for Season

“I just want to be healthy overall,” Bradley Beal said.
Unfortunately for Beal, the promising rookie shooting guard couldn’t even survive another full game. After experiencing some discomfort in his ankle and having another hard fall in the Wizards’ win on Tuesday over Chicago, Beal had an MRI exam that revealed a season-ending stress injury in his right fibula. Surgery isn’t required, but the team announced in a statement that he would be able to return to basketball-related activities in approximately six weeks.
“I thought he had a really solid rookie year,” Coach Randy Wittman said. “I thought from Day 1, learning what this league is about, learning what these players are about, learning the speed of the game from Day 1 to where we are today. He made improvements and there was steady growth. For a young kid like that in this league, sometimes you don’t know. Sometimes, it takes a while to learn what you’re capable of doing in this league and Bradley had great strides in his growth and learning how to play. That was the thing that I was most pleased with.”
