The Washington Wizards have not had much to celebrate this season, but they can be thankful to have Bradley Beal back.  The Wizards spent much of the season fretting over when they would get John Wall back, but Beal suffered an injury that hurt the team almost as much.  Now, in his second game back, Beal has scored a career-high and looks healthy.Michael Lee of the Washington Post says Beal is still overprotective of his wrist, which kept him out of the team;s last five games, but Beal was going to the bucket strong.  If he continues to protect the wrist too much, he could injure himself elsewhere, so Beal will need to be careful.  However, last night, despite the caution surrounding his wrist, he scored a career-high 28 points as the Wizards tools down the Milwaukee Bucks. Beal said after the game that his wrist was feeling a lot better and the team was gaining confidence.  It will be important for them to hold onto that confidence going into next season.  This season is shot, but the Wizards have a lot of young talent.  They could compete soon if they continue to improve.Beal will be a big part of any success the team has going forward.  Last night's performance marked his eighth 20-point outburst of the season.  He is averaging 13.3 points per game and 3.3 rebounds per game.  Beal is in his rookie season.  He came out of the University of Florida.Follow @hoopsinjurynews!function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://www.nbainjurynews.com//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs"); var _gaq = _gaq || []; _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-34100676-1']); _gaq.push(['_trackPageview']); (function() { var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true; ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ?
