Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal has been cleared to begin rehab work on his injured left wrist. Beal’s cast and pins in his wrist were removed on Wednesday, approximately two-and-a-half months after his February surgery.
Beal was injured on January 29 in a game against the Memphis Grizzlies. He suffered a torn scapholunate ligament, and Beal and the Wizards decided at that point that he should be shut down and have surgery.
Beal has a $36.4 million player option for 2022-23 that he’s expected to turn down. The Wizards have expressed optimism that Beal will re-sign with the only team he’s played for in his 10-year career. In the past, Beal has said he wants to re-sign in Washington, but recently said both sides know what’s at stake this summer with building the team for the future.
