And just like that, Beal's rookie season ends early
The Wizards announced Wednesday that rookie guard Bradley Beal will miss the remainder of the season with a stress injury in his right fibula. He is expected to resume basketball-related activities in approximately six weeks. Beal, who was selected with the third overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, has averaged 13.9 points, 3.8 assists and 2.4 rebounds while shooting 39 percent from 3-point range in 56 games (46 starts) this season and currently ranks third among all rookies in scoring and 3-point percentage and second in minutes per game (31.2 mpg). He was named Eastern Conference Rookie of the Month for December and January and set the Wizards rookie franchise record for 3-pointers made in a season with 91.
Analysis: Beal previously missed a total of 18 games on the season (11 due to a sprained left ankle, five due to a sprained right wrist and two due to a sore back). Fantasy owners can release him in seasonal leagues, but he's a solid option in all keeper formats. Beal should enter 2013-14 as a mid-round selection in all leagues, and he projects as a starting guard in all scoring formats.
