Washington Wizards leading scorer Bradley Beal won't take part in the restart of the National Basketball Association season because of a right rotator cuff injury.

Beal's decision against playing was made in consultation with the Wizards' Chief of Athlete Care & Performance Daniel Medina and club orthopedist Dr. Wiemi Douoguih, per the team. The team ruled out Wall traveling to Orlando at the start of team workouts.

At the end of June, Bradley Beal's trainer and a longtime friend sent out a tweet wishing the Wizards star a happy birthday while also congratulating him on a milestone.

Beal had experienced discomfort in the shoulder early in the season, and the symptoms apparently got worse during the layoff.

Beal becomes the second player in National Basketball Association history to average at least 30 points in a season where he was not an All-Star.

With his incredible stats, Beal joined Stephen Curry, Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Michael Jordan as the only players in history to average at least 30.0 points, 6.0 rebounds and 4.0 assists per game on 45.0% or better shooting in a single season since 1975.

He became only the sixth player in league history to record back-to-back 50-point games when he scored 53 against the Chicago Bulls on February 23 and 55 versus the Milwaukee Bucks on February 24.

Although the Nets will enter the Disney World bubble as a playoff team with a sizeable advantage over the ninth-place Wizards, Brooklyn's shortened roster gave Washington a chance to force a play-in game.
