Bradley Beal sprained his right ankle on a fast break in the first quarter, came back to play in the second but was a no-show for the Wizards after halftime against the Indiana Pacers.
The Wizards called it a sprained right ankle and listed his return as questionable while Sheldon McClellan took the court to open the third quarter.
Beal was five-for-nine in the first half for 12 points but slowed down after his injury. He tried running on it during a timeout before he went back into the game but passed up an opportunity for a layup or dunk on a fast break and instead tossed it to Otto Porter.
Beal missed three games earlier this season with a strained right hamstring and returned to play the best basketball of his career. He also has had a long history of stress injuries on his lower right leg in each of his first four NBA seasons.
