The Washington Wizards are trying to head into the new year with a win streak, and they’ve got a three-game run so far heading into Friday’s contest against the Orlando Magic. Washington hopes Bradley Beal will be able to play in this contest after sitting out the team’s last game against the Phoenix Suns. Here’s a look at his status ahead of the matchup with Orlando.

Bradley Beal injury updates

Friday PM update - Beal has been ruled out with a hamstring injury the team considers a day-to-day issue. With the shooting guard sidelined, Avdjia and Kispert are good to put in DFS lineups in Beal’s place.

Beal is officially listed as questionable with a hamstring injury, which is likely an aggravation of a previous hamstring issue. The Wizards are not going to risk their star, who they’ve given a five-year supermax extension, in a December game. However, they are still six games back from a .500 record and will need a big run to be in playoff contention. If Beal is able to go, it’ll be a big boost for Washington.

If Beal cannot play, Deni Avdija and Corey Kispert will gain some value as potential filler plays in DFS lineups.
