The stress injury to Bradley Beal’s right fibula — the one that ended his rookie season early and kept him out of Summer League even though he was supposed to be cleared long before then — is apparently healed.

Beal is back working out with teammates at the Wizards facilities, reports J. Michael at He is working out with Garrett Temple and Kevin Seraphin.

This is good news for Wizards fans.

Beal showed promise as the shooting guard to be paired with John Wall in a young backcourt — he averaged 13.9 points a game and shot 38.6 percent as a rookie last season. Which is why when the stress injury came (it was not a fracture) the Wizards trainers were very cautious about letting him return. They could have pushed for Summer League but decided to play it safe.

If the Wizards can keep Beal, Wall (who missed 33 games with a knee injury last season) and Nene healthy they should be a playoff team in the East. That’s a big if, but this is still potentially one of the surprise NBA teams in the East this season.

    Go Wizards. Beal deserves to have a break out year. He really fits the new Wizards role model of a youngster who says the right things and doesn’t hang out in strip clubs or sniff cinnamon (not a drug reference – just Google “Nick and Javale sniff”). He certainly is easy to root for together with Wall, Nene, Okafor, Ariza and Webster. Not a knucklehead in the bunch or anywhere on the bench. When they start winning, the bandwagon bus will be loaded up in Washington. And, the long time fans deserve it.
