Wizards’ Bradley Beal carried off court following apparent knee injury (VIDEO)

This … did not look good.

Bradley Beal appeared to suffer an injury to his left knee late in the Wizards loss to the Timberwolves on Friday. Beal crumbled with 4:25 to play in the game and his team trailing by 21 points, and needed to be helped off the floor at the time.

The post game X-rays were negative. He will have an MRI on Saturday.

Beal missed nine games earlier this season with what was deemed a stress injury to his right fibula.

We’ll wait for the official diagnosis, of course, and will hope for the best. Beal is an important part of the Wizards’ future, which leads you to wonder why he was in the game to begin with when the deficit was so large and there was so little time remaining.

    Well good thing he was still in the game. I mean they had a chance at coming back.

    Something gave in his knee you can see it once he hits the ground.

    It’s painful to be a Wizards fan sometimes. All my friends joke that we are cursed every time we talk hoops.

      We’re worse than cursed, we’re Grunfelded. He makes Dan Snyder look like ESPN’s Man of the Year.

    Let’s be real, there was no “crumbling” involved. Dante Cunningham very deliberately shoved Beal’s head towards the floor as in transition. At first I thought it was the worst-looking flop of all time, but then I realized the Bullets season was sunk.
