Wizards' Bradley Beal plans to return Monday against the Knicks
After being without guard Bradley Beal the last few weeks, the Wizards expect to have him back on Monday against the Knicks.
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.
