Bradley Beal To Miss At Least Three Games

Wizards star guard Bradley Beal will miss at least three games after being diagnosed with a right hamstring strain, the team tweets.

Beal, who was injured while diving for the ball during the first quarter of Sunday’s game against the Lakers, underwent an MRI on Monday. He will be reevaluated in one week.

It’s relatively good news for Washington, as it suggests Beal should return sometimes this month. However, the 29-year-old appeared to be hitting his stride just before the injury — he racked up a season-high 33 points, seven assists and six rebounds against Charlotte on Friday.

Beal already missed six games after being in the league’s health and safety protocols.

The max-salary player, who has been the subject of countless trade rumors in recent years, is averaging 22.9 points and 5.4 assists. Backup Corey Kispert will likely have an expanded offensive role in his absence. He had 16 points in 30 minutes against the Lakers.
