The only way the Wizards were going to maintain Beal this offseason was if they offered him a max contract, which is exactly what they did despite the 23-year-old's injury concerns to start his career. Beal has played four NBA seasons and is yet to play one in its entirety as he has fought various injuries along the way. The shooting guard's upside, however, is far too high to not take the risk, as Beal still has a lot of time to develop into an elite two-way guard. He has averaged 16.0 points, 3.7 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game while shooting 40 percent from behind the arc since joining the league in 2012.
Bradley Beal (pelvis) will not play in the Washington Wizards ' season finale against the Hawks, Wizards play-by-play announcer Steve Buckhantz reports.
Beal will be missing his second game due to pelvis soreness.

Garrett Temple and Kelly Oubre figure to see extra time in Beal's absence.
Bradley Beal (pelvis) will not play in Monday's game against the Nets, Jorge Castillo of the Washington Post reports.

Bradley Beal will not return to Sunday's game against the Hornets because of a sore pelvis, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports.
It's unclear when the injury occurred, but following halftime, the Washington Wizards ruled Beal out for the rest of the contest. The injury is being listed as a sore pelvis, although the severity remains unclear. With the Wizards safely eliminated from the playoffs, they may just be taking an overly cautious approach, although we'll have to wait for an update for further clarification. Beal will finish the game with three points (1-2 FG, 1-1 3Pt), one rebound and a steal over eight minutes. Marcus Thornton and Garrett Temple will likely see their roles increased in Beal's absence.
Bradley Beal scored 25 points (10-22 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-6 FT) while adding six rebounds and three assists in 41 minutes during Friday's loss to the Pistons.
With John Wall (knee) sidelined, Beal took on a larger role in the offense, but the additional scoring was marred by six turnovers and a dreadful showing on defense. He's now topped 20 points in four of his last five games, and he could continue to see a high shot volume if the Washington Wizards elect to shut Wall down for the remaining three games on the schedule, as Friday's loss eliminated them from the postseason.
