The Washington Wizards lost to the Indiana Pacers 100-99 on Saturday night at the Verizon Center. Unfortunately for them, the loss wasn't the only bad thing which happened on that night.

Wizards guard Bradley Beal had a nasty fall during the third period of the game when he collided in mid-air with Pacers center Myles Turner. He had to be helped off the court.

The fall was later diagnosed to have caused the 22-year-old to sprain his pelvis, and he did not return to action for the rest of the night.

Wizards coach Randy Wittman didn't provide an update on Beal's condition after the game had finished. The guard had scored 12 points before he had to leave the game with 6:17 remaining in the period.

Once again, injuries have caused problems for the former Florida college player, as he has missed 21 games this season for various injuries, with 16 of those games coming in December and January thanks to a right leg stress reaction.

Washington’s second-leading scorer is expected to travel with the side to Portland on Monday for the Wizards' Tuesday night clash against the Trail Blazers. Garrett Temple would likely take Beal's place in the starting lineup if he is unable to play due to his pelvis injury.
