If you were hoping to see the Washington Wizards unleash Bradley Beal anytime in the near future, you’re going to need to wait a bit longer.
According to CSN Washington, the Wizards have no plans to remove Beal’s thirty-minute per game minute restriction as of right now:
The talented Beal has dealt with a handful of injuries during his short NBA tenure and there’s growing concern within the Wizards organization it could become a problem moving forward, thus the team doesn’t want to overextend their young star.
Beal suffered a stress fracture in his leg nearly a month ago and hasn’t played over thirty minutes in a game since that time and likely won’t do so until after the NBA’s All-Star break, assuming he recovers properly.
The lack of minutes has hurt Beal’s production as the second year guard out of Florida is only averaging 12.6 points since his mid-December injury.
For the season, the former third overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft is averaging 18 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists.
