Bradley Beal, who has been out since Thanksgiving because of a stress reaction in his leg, says he's set to return Monday against the Knicks.
The injury is a precursor to a much more severe stress fracture, but Beal said he will go through pre-game workouts and if there's no soreness, he'll play, according to the Washington Post.
The Wizards are 9-13 and have dropped out of the top eight in the Eastern Conference, but when healthy, appear to be one of the better teams. Beal is a big part to what they do, providing a quality scoring option on the perimeter that can catch-and-shoot, or create on his own.
Beal, 20, is averaging 20.5 points, 3.5 assists and 4.2 rebounds in 13 games this season.
