Marc J. Spears: I asked NBA agent Mark Bartelstein if his client Bradley Beal or he had a comment about the Wizards’ star’s recent confrontation in Orlando with a verbally abusive fan who was upset over a gambling loss and his friend.

Tonight is set to be the first road game Kawhi Leonard plays without Paul George since March 2021 in Washington.
PG missed that game due to dizziness. Kawhi has 22 but Russell Westbrook and Bradley Beal combined for 60 in a Wizards win before All-Star break. – 4:00 PM

If Florida police arrest Bradley Beal of #Wizards over altercation with a fan, will they arrest the fan for making a $1,300 wager in a state where sports gambling is illegal? – 4:12 AM

Last week, @paulpierce34 told @HeavyOnSports he thinks the Celtics sometimes play down to the level of their competition.
Tonight, the Celtics lost, 130-111, to a Wizards crew missing Bradley Beal and Kyle Kuzma.

The Celtics’ hopes of a 1-seed aren’t entirely dead after tonight but it would be a huge surprise now after this bad loss to a reeling Wizards squad without Bradley Beal and Kyle Kuzma. – 9:09 PM

Significant result for the Pacers as the Wizards, without Beal or Kuzma, take down the Celtics. Pacers now alone at 7 in the inverse standings, within 1 game of 6 (Portland) and 5 (Orlando). – 9:09 PM

KP beats the buzzer to end the 1st half, as the Wizards go into halftime leading the Celtics by 13 points: 64-51.

Bobby Manning: Wes Unseld said #Wizards aren’t ruling Bradley Beal and Kyle Kuzma out for the season yet, and they’re taking their outlook day-by-day, hoping to get them back. -via Twitter @RealBobManning / March 28, 2023
Washington Wizards shooting guard Bradley Beal — a three-time NBA All-Star — is under police investigation … after he was involved in a confrontation with some hecklers following a game last week, TMZ Sports has learned. -via TMZ.com / March 28, 2023
The complaint against Beal was lodged on March 22, according to the Orlando Police Dept., roughly 24 hours after the basketball player was involved in a spat with two fans following his team’s 122-112 loss to the Magic in Florida. The dispute between Beal and the fans arose right after the 29-year-old hooper was walking down a tunnel to the Wizards’ locker room area at Amway Center. One of the guys in a group yelled at Beal, “You f***ed me [out of] $1,300, you f***!” -via TMZ.com / March 28, 2023
