Wizards’ Bradley Beal: Added to COVID-19 protocols

Beal entered the NBA’s health and safety protocols and won’t be available Sunday for the Wizards’ game against the Grizzlies.

Though the NBA’s current guidelines for players in the COVID-19-related protocols allow for quicker returns to action than in the 2020-21 and 2021-22 seasons, Beal may end up missing two games even if he’s experiencing limited or no symptoms of the virus. After Sunday’s contest, the Wizards will complete the second half of a back-to-back set Monday in Charlotte, so Beal could have a tough time gaining clearance in the next 24 hours in order to be available against the Hornets. Following the back-to-back set, the Wizards have off for two days before returning to action Thursday at home versus the Mavericks.
