Bradley Beal Out Until After New Year And How Long Anthony Davis Will Be Out, Plus More

According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, Phoenix Suns guard Bradley Beal is expected to be sidelined for two to three weeks due to the ankle injury he suffered on Friday night.

Beal injured his right ankle landing on Knicks guard Donte DiVincenzo’s foot on a 3-point shot he made with 7:28 left in the first quarter Friday.DiVincenzo was called for a flagrant 1 after the play was reviewed.

“Injuries are part of the game, and [we’re] disappointed for him. He’s worked really hard. You could see the disappointment on his face in the back,” Suns coach Frank Vogel said following the game against the New York Knicks.

“That’s my biggest concern is just keeping him lifted. He’ll get back soon enough, but it’s been a frustrating injury type of season for him. In terms of us, injuries are part of the game. So we can’t get caught up in that. It’s just part of it, and you move on.”

Phoenix sits in 10th place in the Western Conference as they host the Washington Wizards (4-20). The Suns have lost two straight and six of their last 10. The Suns are 11-8 without Beal.

However, Beal is not the only player that will sit out against the Wizards. The Wizards will be without Josh Okogie (hip) for the third straight game. Nassir Little is questionable after recently returning from a nasal fracture/concussion earlier this week. Meanwhile, Eric Gordon is listed as probable after missing the loss vs New York with a lower leg contusion.
