Beal (COVID-19 protocols) will not play in the Olympics, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. Beal was placed in COVID-19 protocols Wednesday, and the development has led to him being unable to play in the Olympics. He'll presumably be replaced on the roster. Jerami Grant also joined Beal in COVID protocols, so his status is somewhat murky as well. However, Grant has not tested positive.
Team USA is working to replace Beal (COVID-19 protocols) on the Olympic roster, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Beal remains in COVID-19 protocols at Team USA camp, but this latest report would seem to imply that he's expected to miss enough time that it will affect his status for the Games, which get underway from Tokyo next week. It's also possible Team USA will need to find a replacement for Jerami Grant, who joined Beal in COVID-19 protocols on Thursday.
Beal has entered COVID-19 protocols at Team USA camp, and it's unclear when he'll be able to return, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. Beal scored 17 points in Tuesday's exhibition win over Argentina, but his status is now unclear after he landed in the health and safety protocols Wednesday. It's highly unlikely that Beal will be available for either of Team USA's two remaining exhibition games, and his status for the Tokyo Olympics will now depend on whether he is cleared prior to July 24.
Beal tallied 32 points (10-23 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 10-10 FT), seven rebounds and five assists in 39 minutes during Wednesday's 129-112 loss to the 76ers. The 27-year-old delivered another heroic effort Wednesday, leading all players in points while going a perfect 10-of-10 from the charity stripe. Despite losing the playoff series to Philadelphia, Beal averaged an impressive 30.0 points, 6.2 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 1.4 three-pointers and 0.8 steals over five playoff games. The ninth-year guard goes into the offseason with two years remaining on his five-year, $127 million contract with the Wizards.
Beal registered 27 points (9-23 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 7-8 FT), four rebounds, four assists, two blocks and a steal across 43 minutes in Monday's Game 4 win over the 76ers. Beal emerged as the leading scorer for the Wizards in a game where Russell Westbrook struggled mightily from the floor, but that shouldn't be a surprise considering the star shooting guard ended the regular season as the second-best scorer in the entire Association. Beal has scored at least 25 points in every game of the series thus far, though the efficiency from long range remains a concern since he's made just 20 percent of his three-point attempts despite shooting 46 percent from the field.
