Wizards guard Bradley Beal has been diagnosed with the beginnings of a stress reaction in his lower right leg and will miss the next two weeks before being re-evaluated, the team announced Saturday. 

The injury was initially diagnosed following an MRI on Friday and confirmed Saturday after further testing. It's the fourth time in four seasons that Beal has dealt with injury concerns in his right fibula.

Beal has appeared in 17 games for Washington this season, averaging 19.8 points, 4.7 rebounds and 3.2 assists in 36.5 minutes per game. Gary Neal, Garrett Temple and Ramon Sessions will all see an uptick in minutes with Beal's injury. 

It could be a tough stretch without Beal for the Wizards (9-12), who have lost three of their past four games. Over the next four games the Wiz will face the Mavericks, Grizzlies and Spurs on the road before returning home to face the Hornets.
