Wizards' Bradley Beal to miss rest of season

The news is not surprising, but it's still disappointing to Washington Wizards fans and to Bradley Beal. Beal will miss the remainder of the season thanks to a stress fracture in his right leg.  The recovery time for this injury is expected to be six weeks, so as the team announced yesterday, Beal will be done for the year.

Beal is an exciting player that should help with Washington's rebuilding process.  Alongside John Wall, Beal can help bring excitement and youth back to Wizards' basketball.  However, he will have to find a way to stay healthy.

Beal missed a total of 26 games during the 2012-13 season.  He battled multiple injuries including the stress fracture and an ankle sprain.  While much of this is unavoidable, the Wizard will have to hope Beal can remain healthy next season.  If they are ever to climb out of the cellar, they need all their players available and at the top of their game.

Beal averaged 13.9 points, 2.4 assists, and 3.8 rebounds per game in his rookie campaign.  The 19-year old out of Florida has shown some great promise.  Fortunately, he will be ready for some offseason workouts soon, and he will definitely be ready for training camp prior to next season.
