    The Washington Wizards suffered another possible blow to their rotation with starting shooting guard Bradley Beal getting an MRI on his right leg Monday. Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal has another stress injury in his right leg and will be sidelined for at least two weeks. The team announced Tuesday that Beal felt sore and had an MRI, which diagnosed the problem in his proximal right fibula. Beal, who leads the team in scoring with 20.6 points per game and the league in minutes played at 40.2, had been experiencing soreness in his lower right leg the leg in which he suffered a stress injury last year that prematurely ended his rookie season. For his part, Beal told reporters Tuesday that the injury was identified and addressed early enough that he doesn't believe it will be a major stumbling block, and that the pain he feels is significantly less now than it was back in April. Then again, as Bullets Forever's Mike Prada notes, is really a "two weeks and then we'll see, who knows" timeline, dependent on the forthcoming re-evaluation, and the Wizards haven't had the best track record with this sort of thing; recall, if you will, that John Wall was set to miss eight weeks with a "stress injury" in his left knee last year but wound up sidelined nearly twice that long before returning in mid-January. Ariza has been nursing a right hamstring strain and missed the team's past five games, while Singleton has yet to play this season due to a broken left foot.
