After beating the Clippers on Monday night, the Wizards returned for a light practice on Tuesday. Randy Wittman said the team ran through non-contact drills and Bradley Beal took part in the shooting portion for the first time in over a week. He injured his wrist in Denver on January 18th, but then tried to play through the injury. The problem was that the wrist continued to bother him and was affecting his shot, which would eventually cause him to miss the Wizards three-game road trip last week and Monday's game vs. the Clippers.
Witt said that Beal was making steps in the right direction and will be evaluated each day. It sounded like he should be back in the lineup soon, possibly as soon as tomorrow night when the Wizards host the Knicks.
