WASHINGTON — As the trade deadline approaches with the Wizards reportedly making everyone available except him, Bradley Beal is expected to miss the next two games after spraining his left wrist.

The Wizards updated Beal’s status Monday. He was injured in the third quarter at Memphis on Saturday.

Washington plays at Milwaukee on Tuesday and at Philadelphia on Wednesday. The team said Beal’s status beyond those two games will be updated after further evaluation.

Beal is averaging 23.2 points per game this season. He missed time earlier in the month after entering health and safety protocols.

The Wizards have lost five straight and have fallen all the way out of playoff position, facing internal issues, after winning 10 of their first 13 games this season.
