Washington Wizards shooting guard Bradley Beal has been dealing with leg injuries since entering the league as a rookie last season, and the injuries are continuing to plague him in 2013. The latest injury for Beal is a “stress reaction,” which will knock him out of action for at least two weeks.
Bradley Beal has the same stress injury to the same leg but in a different location, the Wizards revealed before Tuesday’s game vs. the Los Angeles Lakers.
It means that Beal will be out for the next two weeks and then he’ll be re-evaluated by doctors. The injury was diagnosed by the Wizards’ team doctors after an MRI on Monday after Beal complained of soreness in his right leg.
Beal’s current stress injury is in the proximal, or upper, right fibula. The one that ended his rookie season prematurely in April was to the lower part of the same small bone, his distal right.
Beal was having an impressive start to the season where he led the team in scoring, but the latest setback puts his immediate ability to contribute in jeopardy.
We will know more about the length of his recovery after being re-evaluated in two weeks time.
