John Wall and Bradley Beal named in Forbes top 100 highest-paid athletes

Forbes released an article Friday morning detailing "The World's Highest-Paid Athletes in 2020," and the D.C. House of Guards, Bradley Beal and John Wall, both made appearances. 

Beal, who signed a heavily discussed two-year, $72 million contract extension last offseason (which doesn't kick in until the 2021 season), came in at No. 96 ($2 million in endorsements, $20.3 million in salary). Wall cracked the top 50 (42) with $2.5 million in endorsements and $28.5 million in salary.

"Figures include all prize money, salaries and bonuses earned between June 1, 2019, and June 1, 2020," Forbes said. "With the delayed seasons due to the coronavirus, we reduced overall NBA salaries 25%, based on our estimate for the maximum salary cut."

For the football crowd, it's also worth noting that former Redskins QB Kirk Cousins ranked ninth on the list ($2.5 million in endorsements, $58 million in salary).

Garrison Mathews didn't travel to Orlando with Wizards, participation unclear

Garrison Mathews didn't travel to Orlando with Wizards, participation unclear

When the Washington Wizards touched down at the Walt Disney World Resort on July 7 at 8:15 p.m. for the NBA restart, it was seemingly only without Bradley Beal, John Wall, and Davis Bertans. 

But after a report from The Athletic's Fred Katz Thursday afternoon, Washington arrived without guard Garrison Mathews as well.

NBC Sports Washington has confirmed with Mathews. 

According to Katz's report, Mathews' absence is not coronavirus related and it is unclear whether or not he will join the team at a later date or opt-out of the Wizards final eight regular season games in their entirety.

Mathews, affectionately known as 'Professional Shooter' by NBC Sports Washington's Chris Miller, averaged 5.4 points in his 18 games played this season.

Mathews also missed time this season with a  right ankle sprain back in January.
