Bradley Beal diagnosed with concussion
Washington Wizards shooting guard Bradley Beal has been diagnosed with a mild concussion after catching an elbow from center Ian Mahinmi during Wednesday’s practice, according to Candace Buckner of the Washington Post.
Beal was a non-participant on Thursday’s practice. He’s had a list of injury woes throughout his short four-year career, including recurring injuries to his left leg, even hinting last year that he might need to be in a minutes restriction for the rest of his career.
The University of Florida product is fresh off signing a five-year, $128 million max deal with the Wizards and is expected to live up to his contract.
The 6-foot-5 sharpshooter only made 55 appearances last season and has only played more than 63 games just once in his four seasons.
Bradley Beal averaged 17.4 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 2.9 assists last season and will need to improve that production this year in order to justify the investment the team has made on him this summer.
