Bradley Beal to Undergo Season Ending Surgery

USA Today

Washington Wizards shooting guard Bradley Beal will undergo surgery on his left wrist, ending his 2021-22 season.

Beal has a torn scapholunate ligament in the left wrist, and he’s opting to undergo the procedure.

The 28-year-old averaged 23.2 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 6.6 assists this season.

Beal released a statement:

“Despite the last 10 days of getting intensive treatment and rehab on my wrist, it became clear that I would not be able to compete to my standards or to the level that our team and our fans deserve,” said Beal. “I’m disappointed to have my season end this way, but we all agreed that this was the best decision. I look forward to coming back at 100 percent and continuing to lead this team as we work together to build toward the future.”

This offseason, Beal is eligible for a five-year, $240 million maximum contract extension with the Wizards.

However, if he tests free agency, Beal could join another club for a maximum four-year, 180 million contract.

It’ll be an interesting offseason to see if Beal finally fully decides to stay in Washington, or move on to a contender.

The Wizards have failed to make any real post season noise, and have yet to build a strong enough roster to even contend.
