Due to “contact tracing”, Wizards’ star Bradley Beal will not play in tonight’s game vs. the Miami Heat. According to Yahoo Sports’ Shams Charania, it’s because he was in “close proximity” to Celtics’ guard Jayson Tatum.

This is part of health and safety protocols investigating potential exposure that occurred when Bradley Beal and Jayson Tatum were speaking in close proximity on the court postgame Friday night, sources said. https://t.co/42fYb8Yesc— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) January 9, 2021
Not that Washington had much of a chance tonight anyway, but without Beal, they’re not even close. Looks like it’s Russell Westbrook’s time to shine with another meaningless triple-double.
