Wizards’ Beal (hamstring) out at least 1 week

Washington Wizards guard Bradley Beal will be out at least a week after being diagnosed with a low-grade left hamstring strain, the team announced Thursday.

Beal had made his return to the lineup Tuesday after missing three games with what was described as a sore hamstring. But he didn’t play in the second half after scoring eight points in 13 minutes during a loss to the Milwaukee Bucks.

An MRI confirmed the hamstring strain. The Wizards said Beal would miss the next three games, starting Friday against the Oklahoma City Thunder, and be reevaluated in a week.

Beal leads the Wizards in scoring at 22.9 points. Washington (17-22) sits in 11th place in the Eastern Conference entering Thursday’s games.
