According to Jorge Castillo of The Washington Post, Bradley Beal is expected to return to practice this week and hopes to make season debut on Friday against Cleveland.
Washington Wizards guard, Bradley Beal, has been out since October 10th with a fractured wrist. This coming Friday could be the long awaited day that he makes his season debut. For now, he will start practicing this week with the team. Jorge Castillo of the Washington Post went into more depth:
“Washington Wizards shooting guard Bradley Beal, out since Oct. 10 with a fractured left wrist, is expected to return to practice this week and is “hoping” to make his season debut Friday night against the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to a person with knowledge of the situation. …”
“A day after doctors evaluated his fractured left wrist and concluded he has avoided any setbacks, Beal exhibited no limitations during a dribbling and shooting drill with assistant coach David Adkins following the Wizards’ shootaround Saturday morning. The Wizards likely won’t practice Sunday so Beal would have to wait until Monday to practice for the first time.”
The Wizards have started the season with a 6-2 record with John Wall leading the way. Wall has started hot and the return of Bradley Beal will only help this team continue to improve. The combination of Beal and Wall are in the contest for the best backcourt in the league and they will finally be able to prove themselves again maybe starting Friday. The Wizards will most likely be fighting for a top four seed in the playoffs and at full strength it should make these games against Cleveland and other top teams even more exciting.
