Hachimura active, Beal avoids injury report for tilt with Spurs originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington

The Wizards released their injury report for Monday night’s game against the San Antonio Spurs, listing both Russell Westbrook (right ankle sprain) and Robin Lopez (left ankle sprain) as questionable. However, perhaps the most notable aspect of the report was the absence of two significant names.

Rui Hachimura has missed the Wizards’ last four games with left knee soreness but appears slated to return Monday after working his way off the injury report. The 2019 No. 9 overall pick is averaging 13.5 points and 5.7 rebounds per game this season, starting all 47 of the games he’s played.

Even more critical to the Wizards’ success is Bradley Beal, who exited Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Cavaliers after hitting the floor awkwardly on a layup attempt in the final minutes. Beal originally described the pain as encompassing both his shin and calf but he evidently showed enough progress to avoid landing on the injury report Monday.

Washington enters the contest riding an eight-game winning streak. The Wizards hold a two-game lead over the Chicago Bulls for the No. 10 seed in the East, which would qualify them for the play-in tournament before the first round of the playoffs.
