Thomas Bryant and Bradley Beal will return to Wizards vs. Jazz

Wizards

Two days following Davis Bertans' return from a nine-game absence, the Wizards will regain two more of their top scorers. 

Scott Brooks told reporters Sunday that Bradley Beal would return to the starting lineup against the Jazz under a minutes restriction. He will start alongside Isaiah Thomas, Jordan McRae, Isaac Bonga and Ian Mahinmi. 

And the good news didn't stop there. After missing the last 20 games while dealing with a foot injury, Wizards center Thomas Bryant will play Sunday as well. 

The Wizards went 7-13 without Bryant, leaning on Mahinmi, Johnathan Williams and two-way player Anzejs Pasecniks for minutes at the five. Since then, Pasecniks has secured a multi-year contract with Washington and Williams has been brought in on a two-way deal. 

Bryant was averaging 13.9 points, 8.5 rebounds and 2.7 assists in his first full season as the starting center.

Beal meanwhile, missed seven of the last eight games with leg soreness. His team managed to beat the Heat, Nuggets and Celtics without him, but they sorely missed his all-around game.

Against a hot Utah team, getting Beal and Bryant could mean two straight wins for the Wizards. Utah will be without Donovan Mitchell and Mike Conley.
