Thanksgiving is next week, so Wall and Beal are starting to get in the holiday spirit by helping others who are in need:

This is why Wizards fans love Wall and Beal. They are always giving back to the community and making sure their faces are seen in public, just to let people know they care about others and aren’t superficial athletes who make millions of dollars.
Wall is expected to miss the entire 2019-20 season due to his Achilles tear. The former No. 1 overall pick played in 32 games last season before undergoing his season-ending heel surgery. Wall then fell at his house and tore his Achilles tendon. He averaged 20.7 points, 3.6 rebounds and 8.7 assists per game in 2018-19 while shooting 44.4 percent from the field, 30.2 percent from beyond the arc and 69.7 percent from the free-throw line.
Beal signed a two-year, $72 million extension with the Wizards. So far this season, Beal is averaging 30.1 points, 4.7 rebounds and 6.9 assists per contest. He’s shooting 45.8 percent overall, 33.3 percent from the 3-point line and 81.7 percent from the charity stripe.
The Wizards are 3-8 on the season. They lost to the Orlando Magic on Sunday by a final score of 125-121.
