The Wizards announced before their game at the Dallas Mavericks on Saturday night that Beal "has been diagnosed with the beginnings of a stress reaction in his lower right fibula".

The team said Beal will be evaluated after sitting out two weeks.

The injury initially was diagnosed after an MRI on Friday, when Beal missed Washington's 107-105 loss at New Orleans, and confirmed after more tests Saturday.

Beal is second on the Wizards in scoring average at 19.8 points, fourth in rebounding at 4.7 and second in assists at 3.2.

Washington entered Saturday with a 9-12 record and in last place in the Southeast Division.
