Bradley Beal suffered a sprained ankle and was carried off the court Sunday. Washington managed to gut out a 90-87 win over the Philadelphia 76ers without the rookie. The injury was feared to be serious, but the Wizards tweeted that x-rays on Beal's ankle came back negative. He's likely to be feeling it the next few days, but he'll get a couple of days to rest it with the Wiz off until Wednesday.  Beal, the No. 3 pick, played 37 minutes and scored 14 points on 6-of-12 shooting, including two 3-pointers. The rook added four rebounds, three assists and two blocks prior to the injury. Trevor Ariza is likely to get extra run -- he played 28 minutes and managed nine points and eight boards Sunday -- with Beal out. The veteran win has been playing well of late, averaging 15.8 points, 2 3-pointers, 4.4 rebounds, 3.4 assists, 1.8 steals and .2 blocks in his last five games. Beal said x-rays on ankle came back negative, initially thought injury was more serious but not as concerned now, will see how it feels tmrw — Washington Wizards (@WashWizards) March 4, 2013 Ill be good tweeps thanks for your support !! #wizkids !! — Bradley Beal (@RealDealBeal23) March 4, 2013 Photo: Keith Allison.
