Wizards: Bradley Beal won't need shoulder surgery
Washington Wizards shooting guard Bradley Beal's right rotator cuff injury is not expected to require surgery, according to Wizards general manager Tommy Sheppard.
Sheppard also revealed that Beal has been dealing with the shoulder issue since November and that it got worse during the hiatus. He still managed to average a career-high 30.5 points per game, so Beal should be even better next season once he's healed. The 2012 top-three pick turned 27 last month.
Per FanDuel Sportsbook, the Wizards are tied for having the worst odds (+30000) to win the NBA Championship.
