Bradley Beal Out 6-8 Weeks - Broken Wrist

The Washington Wizards will start the NBA season without Bradley Beal, who will be sidelined for up to 2 months with a broken wrist. In April of his rookie season, he broke his leg, ending his season, limited him to just 56 games (46 starts). He suffered numerous injuries that season. However, last season he was healthy enough to start 73 games for the Wizards and averaged 17 points per game, knocking down nearly two 3s/gm. Extra playing time for Glen Rice Jr and Garrett Temple make them decent streaming options to start the season, but do not draft them..

Last season, John Wall played in all 82 games for the first time in his career, after 66 or less in each of his first 3 seasons, including just 49 during the 2012-13 campaign. 

Washington added Paul Pierce, DeJuan Blair and Kris Humphris this offseason, but lost Trevor Ariza and Trevor Booker in free agency to the Houston Rockets.
