According to Michael Lee of the Washington Post, Bradley Beal is scheduled to resume contact basketball next week after meeting with his agent and doctor.

Beal, who has missed three months with the injury, plans to start doing live contact work in the next week or so after consulting with his agent and doctor. He expects to be ready for the start of Wizards training camp in late September.

Beal has been sidelined for three months with a stress injury in his right fibula. John Wall had missed 33 games at the beginning of this past season due to a similar injury.

With hopes of Beal getting 100% ready before the start of training camp, the Wizards have been very cautious with Beal, keeping him out longer than expected. Washington has been plagued with injuries, but are hoping to make a playoff push this upcoming season.

Bradley Beal has spent time over the past few weeks in Las Vegas, working out with teammate John Wall at Team USA mini-camp. Beal wasn’t able to scrimmage with the team, but still participated in shooting drills and off-ball movement.

Hopefully we won’t hear much injury news this off-season. After all, health will be a key factor leading up to the season.
