Bradley Beal injury: Wizards guard carried off in OT with sprained ankle

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The second-year shooting guard hurt his ankle against the Orlando Magic on Friday.

Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal had to be carried off the floor with just 42 seconds left in the team's 105-101 win against the Orlando Magic on Friday night. Beal appeared to be clutching at his legs after trying to contest a shot by Magic rookie Victor Oladipo in the waning seconds of overtime.

As Oladipo drove down the right lane line with 46 seconds left, Beal slid alongside him in an effort to stop penetration. Oladipo put up a running right-handed hook that bounced off the rim. As Beal came down, he appeared to land normally on his feet, but fell to the ground and immediately began clutching at his legs. Doctors rushed to the court after a timeout was called, and Beal had to be carried from the floor by his teammates.

Beal is having a great year so far, averaging 17 points per-game while shooting 42 percent from behind the arc. The Wizards are firmly in the Eastern Conference playoff picture at 34-31. The Wizards guard is listed as day-to-day.
