Beal has made it clear he doesn’t plan to sign an extension and likely will skip his player option. That would make some teams nervous, but to this point there has been no real discussion of Beal on the trade market, league executives said.

Noah Levick @NoahLevick
With no Matisse Thybulle, the Sixers only forced three turnovers in the first half against the Wizards. Charlie Brown Jr.’s competed admirably on Bradley Beal, though.
Sixers down six at the break and should be capable of another comeback road win. – 3:10 PM

Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS
The Wizards lead the Sixers 61-55 at halftime. Beal has 12 pts, Embiid has 16. Wizards’ bench has a 28-13 advantage so far over the Sixers’. – 3:08 PM

Wizards lead the Sixers 38-29 after one, as Thomas Bryant hits a buzzer-beater midrange J. Beal and Embiid each have 11 pts. Zero turnovers for the Wizards. – 2:39 PM

Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
Charlie Brown Jr. will enter the game. I assume he’ll get some time defending Bradley Beal. #Sixers2:21 PM

Quinton Mayo @RealQuintonMayo
Beal starts the game 2/2 with 5 points.
Gets a bucket then calls Korkmaz “too small.” – 2:15 PM

Neil Dalal @NeilDalal96
I can picture Bradley Beal learning Matisse Thybulle is out for the 76ers and going like, ‘oh, I’m definitely playing’ 😂
Could we see Beal’s first 40-point game this season?
Of course, Beal dropped his career-high 60 points last season against Philly – 1:41 PM

Bradley Beal is a gametime decision today against the Sixers. He is listed as questionable after missing several games in health and safety protocols. – 12:21 PM

Josh Robbins @JoshuaBRobbins
Bradley Beal’s availability for today will be a gametime decision, Joseph Blair said. Beal has cleared the league protocol, Blair said. – 12:20 PM

Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin
Wizards acting coach Joseph Blair says Bradley Beal is a game time decision today. He has cleared the protocols, but the team’s medical staff needs to make sure that he is ready to go. – 12:20 PM

Ava Wallace @avarwallace
Acting head coach Joseph Blair says Bradley Beal is a game-time decision for Wiz-Sixers today. Beal has cleared protocols but is awaiting a decision from the medical staff. – 12:19 PM

Quinton Mayo @RealQuintonMayo
Bradley Beal (health and safety protocol) is a game-time decision this afternoon against the Philadelphia 76ers.
He has cleared protocol. – 12:19 PM

David Aldridge @davidaldridgedc
As the Wizards hit the unofficial halfway point, @Josh Robbins & I look at the first 43 games, whether Washington is the 10-3 team that started the season or the 12-18 team that’s played since, & whether Bradley Beal is a long-term play. In @TheAthletic: bit.ly/34Sie1v12:00 PM

Ava Wallace @avarwallace
Acting Wizards head coach Pat Delany is in health & safety protocols, team says, joining Wes Unseld Jr. and Bradley Beal.
Assistant coach Joseph Blair will be taking over for today’s game vs. Philly at 2. – 10:51 AM

David Aldridge @davidaldridgedc
The Wizards have had two wildly different parts of their season. Which was who they really are? Should they make a move by the trade deadline? And should that include Bradley Beal? Our ⁦@Josh Robbins⁩ & I discuss, in ⁦@TheAthletic⁩: theathletic.com/3073695/2022/0…8:21 AM

Ava Wallace @avarwallace
Bradley Beal (health & safety) is questionable for Wizards-Sixers. – 4:40 PM

Marc J. Spears @MarcJSpears
Wizards say Bradley Beal (health and safety protocols) is questionable tomorrow vs. Philadelphia. – 4:36 PM

Neil Dalal @NeilDalal96
Bradley Beal (health and safety protocols) has been upgraded to QUESTIONABLE vs. 76ers on Monday
He needs two consecutive negative tests to clear protocols and maybe the results of today’s test (results tomorrow) clear him – 4:32 PM

Josh Robbins @JoshuaBRobbins
Bradley Beal is still in the league’s health and safety protocols, acting Wizards coach Pat Delany said. Davis Bertans, who missed last night’s game with a sprained foot, did some light on-court work today. – 12:53 PM

More on this storyline

Brian Windhorst: I have heard nothing on Bradley Beal in the trade market. His name hasn’t been mentioned at all. -via Spotify / January 8, 2022

Brian Windhorst: So here’s the question that executives are starting to ask themselves… Are the Wizards in a position where they want to give Bradley Beal a five-year, $200 million contract? -via Spotify / January 8, 2022

More than four weeks are left in this trade season for the Sixers to amend that stance, but the vibe they continue to emit — no matter how loudly outsiders push back — is that they believe waiting can indeed enhance their chances of acquiring a Damian Lillard or a Bradley Beal for Simmons. As it stands. -via marcstein.substack.com / January 7, 2022
