Bradley Beal Isn’t a Fan Of The Wizards Playing Shorthanded During COVID-19 Outbreak
Washington Wizards’ All Star Bradley Beal is tight at the NBA right now.
The Wizards have not played since defeating Phoenix on Jan. 11. The team had a COVID-19 outbreak that led to five games being postponed, including their game schedule for Wednesday night. With all that going on, the league is forcing the Wizards to play on Friday night against the Milwaukee Bucks.
Beal believes that it’s too soon and “that’s just a recipe for injury.”
Beal, Raul Neto, Cassius Winston, Garrison Mathews, Jerome Robinson, Isaac Bonga, Anthony Gill, and Robin Lopez are all available. Deni Avdija, Davis Bertans, Troy Brown, Rui Hachimura, Ish Smith, and Moe Wagner are in health and safety protocol.
The Wizards are 3-8 this season. Talk about hard knock life for the Wizards. The league is taking the best course of action for the safety of all its players. It’s just unfortunate that the Wizards are the team currently caught up in a COVID-19 outbreak.
