Report: John Wall, Bradley Beal consistently in team meetings despite being outside NBA bubble

Wizards

As the Wizards continue through the rest of their NBA restart schedule without their three best players, Bradley Beal, John Wall and Davis Bertans' presence are still felt within the team. 

According to Yahoo Sports' Chris Haynes, the Wizards set up live streaming links to practices and meetings for players and staff not with them in the bubble. Wall and Beal have been watching practices daily and are still participating in team meetings. Bertans has also been active during these team events.

Haynes' story also includes that if Beal misses a practice or meeting, he'll FaceTime Washington general manager Tommy Sheppard to catch up on what he missed. And as we know, when Beal isn't helping his teammates before and after games, he's coaching them on Twitter during.

Wizards fans have to feel good learning that their team's franchise players are still plugged in even though they aren't playing. It'd be hard to blame them if Wall and Beal took a back seat and focused solely on their preparation for next season. 

But these are two veterans who understand the importance of a supporting cast and what developing young players can do for a franchise's championship window. They're making themselves available and visible so that when this team faces adversity next season, it'll be easier for all the players to come together. 

 

Washington's playoff hopes are slim as they trail the Nets by 7.5 games for the eighth seed with five games left, but there's no doubt everyone involved is using their time in Orlando productively.
