  • Bradley Beal - G - Washington Wizards

    The Lakers are looking at adding a litany of veteran players via trade this offseason, including: Kyle Lowry, Derrick Favors and Bradley Beal according to Sean Deveney of Sporting News.

    The Lakers acquiring the fourth pick in the 2019 NBA draft will make them all the more competitive on the trade market. It has been well documented how LeBron James' teams have preferred established players over rookies, and that should be no different after coming off of the disaster that last season's Laker team was. The connection between the Lakers and Beal has been established for months, but it's worth keeping in mind as we get closer to the draft. Aiming to add vets like Lowry and Favors also makes sense, but obviously Beal would be the big get of that bunch.

    Bradley Beal tallied 16 points, five boards, four assists and three 3-pointers in 17 minutes of action in Tuesday's season finale defeat to the Celtics.

    Beal was expected to not log very many minutes in this meaningless game for the Wizards. He had a career year averaging over 25 points, five rebounds and five assists per game while playing in all 82 games for the second season in a row. He'll finish right about top-15 in 8 and 9-cat formats, benefiting from another John Wall injury. With Wall expected to miss almost, if not all, of next season, Beal will have high expectations going into next season.

    Scott Brooks said that Bradley Beal will not play a lot of minutes in Tuesday's game against the Celtics.

    Chasson Randle should benefit from a few extra minutes, while the Wizards can also deploy Troy Brown Jr. at shooting guard for stretches. Beal can still put up numbers against a Celtics team playing without none of their starters tonight, but this news does cap his ceiling.

    Bradley Beal scored 13 points, adding two 3s, five assists, three boards and a steal on Sunday night against the Knicks.

    Beal was not at his sharpest tonight going 5-of-17 from the field, but can be forgiven at this point in the fantasy season. Beal has been a top-10 value in 8/9-category leagues and should pick up next year right where he is leaving off this year. His backcourtmate Tomas Satoransky did not fare much better, chipping in seven points, seven assists and two steals in 32 minutes on the floor.

    Bradley Beal scored a team-high 25 points on 9-of-19 shooting with two rebounds, two 3s and five assists in a tough loss to the Spurs on Friday.

    Beal really took his game to another level this season, especially after John Wall went down to injury. With Wall expected to miss most of 2019-20, expect Beal to be a hot target in the corner of the first and second rounds of most standard-league fantasy drafts.

  • Bradley Beal - G - Washington Wizards

    Bradley Beal on played just 22 minutes on Wednesday against the Bulls, finishing with 19 points (9-of-18 from the field), four rebounds, two blocks, a steal and a 3-pointer.

    This was the third lowest minutes total Beal has played all year, but was still able to put together a fantasy friendly line, even if it is below his standards. In other news, Beal added that he plans to close out the year by playing every game, eliminating the shutdown risk many expected with the Wizards' season effectively over.

    Bradley Beal (potential rest) will play on Wednesday night against the Bulls.

    Last week Scott Brooks hinted at some upcoming rest for Beal, but so far so good. We'd be surprised if he doesn't get at least one night off the rest of the way but fantasy owners have to be pleased that he's been playing even after Washington was officially eliminated. Beal's turned in a fantastic season and gets bonus points for playing out the string.

    The Wizards fired president Ernie Grunfeld on Tuesday, but they are not planning to change their head coach, according to multiple sources close to David Aldridge.

    Wizards will be conducting a GM search immediately and a lot will depend on who they hire. Front offices usually get a fresh start and are allowed to bring in their own coach so this report is preliminary to say at least. Washington will have to make a choice on whether to rebuild and trade away their main assets or stick to the current plan and build around Bradley Beal.

    Bradley Beal scored 34 points on an efficient 13-of-25 from the field on Friday night, adding six assists, two steals and two triples in 39 minutes against the Jazz.

    Scott Brooks hinted before the game that Beal might rest, but he certainly had no restrictions tonight. Fantasy owners should be wary of Beal sitting out on the weekend, as it does seem likely that he'll get at least one game off with Washington's season over and Beal having carried an immense load all year.

    Bradley Beal will play on Friday vs. the Jazz.

    Coach Scott Brooks was considering giving Beal a day off but he'll be playing so make sure he's in your lineups.

    Bradley Beal's status is uncertain for Friday's game.

    This is more than a little bit annoying. It doesn't seem like there's an injury here and this could just be rest for one of the premier players in the league. Well, the timing would be horrible for people trying to win finals weeks down the stretch if Beal does sit out. Stay tuned for an update.

    Bradley Beal scored 16 points with three rebounds, three assists, one steal, two 3s on 6-of-14 shooting in a 108-113 loss to the Heat on Saturday.

    Even with Beal slightly slowing down in his past three games, he's still a top-5 player and has been annihilating his ADP ever since John Wall went down with a season-ending injury. Bad games happen from time to time so expect Beal to bounce back against the Lakers on Tuesday.

  • Bradley Beal - G - Washington Wizards

    Bradley Beal scored 27 points with seven rebounds and seven assists on 7-of-19 shooting in a team-high 44 minutes in an overtime loss to the Bulls on Wednesday.

    He added three steals and two blocks and shot 11-of-15 from the line. He is a top-5 fantasy option over the past month and has obliterated his ADP since John Wall got injured. Bobby Portis did not shoot the ball well as he had 15 points on 6-of-17 shooting. Portis offers late-round value with scoring, shooting and rebounding appeal.
