Unseld Jr. says Bradley Beal hurt his left hamstring tonight. He had previously missed time due to a right hamstring issue. Not sure of severity. – 9:57 PM

Ava Wallace @avarwallace

Wes Unseld Jr. did not have a full update on Bradley Beal but did say it was his left hamstring that caused him to leave the game, not the right that he strained (and missed 6 games for) earlier this month. – 9:57 PM

John Hollinger @johnhollinger

Sixers had some bad fortune from 3 … but also didn’t defend for a half and got zilch from supporting cast. Rough out for Melton in particular. Nice win for Wizards, gotta hope Beal is okay now. – 9:42 PM

Final: Wizards 116, Philly 111 and the Sixers’ eight-game winning streak is over. The last time they’d lost was on Dec. 5 in Houston.

Ohm Youngmisuk @Notorious OHM

Bradley Beal went back into the locker room after grabbing his hamstring. He tossed his headband in frustration before going back into the tunnel. – 9:21 PM

Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS

Bradley Beal just left for the locker room with an apparent injury and in obvious frustration. Unclear what he hurt. – 9:20 PM

Keith Pompey @PompeyOnSixers

Beal walked straight to the locker room after committing the foul. He injured himself on the play. – 9:20 PM

Ava Wallace @avarwallace

Bradley Beal’s heading to the locker room after that play. Looked like he grabbed the back of his leg – 9:20 PM

Austin Krell @NBAKrell

Looks like Beal tweaked a hamstring. Going to locker room. Could be a big swing in this game. – 9:20 PM

Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS

It’s 94-85 Wizards going into the 4th. Embiid has 36 pts, Porzingis has 20, Beal has 19. Wizards are trying to hang on to make it 3 wins in 4 games. – 8:58 PM

Ava Wallace @avarwallace

Halftimes: Wizards 67, Philly 56
Beal: 17p
Porzingis: 14p 6r
Hachimura: 10p
Wiz are shooting 55.8%. Things aren’t going well for Philly when Embiid’s off the floor, but Embiid has 26p. – 8:14 PM

Josh Robbins @Joshua BRobbins

A good first half for Washington, which leads Philadelphia 67-56 despite having 12 first-half turnovers and seeing Joel Embiid score a game-high 26 points. Bradley Beal has a team-high 17 points for Washington. – 8:14 PM

Ky Carlin @Ky_Carlin

Philadelphia trails it 67-56 at the half. Joel Embiid has 26, but they’re 2/13 from deep. Bradley Beal is 17 and Kristaps Porzingis is 14 for the Wiz. #Sixers8:13 PM

Keith Pompey @PompeyOnSixers

Wizards lead 32-30 after one quarter. Embiid with 16 points on 6-9 shootings. Beal leads the Wizards with 11 points on 5-7 shootings. – 7:43 PM

Ava Wallace @avarwallace

The Wiz weather 9 turnovers in the first quarter to lead Philly 32-30.
Beal: 11p
Porzingis and Avdija have 5 each
Embiid has 16p – 7:42 PM

Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS

It’s not often you see a team turn the ball over 9 times in the 1st quarter, yet have a lead, but the Wizards just did that against the Sixers. It’s 32-30 after one.
Beal has 11 pts, Embiid has 16 to lead their teams. – 7:42 PM

Mike Prada @MikePradaNBA

This start by Beal fits my crack theory that he prefers to go against more physical perimeter defenders like Melton rather than super long ones. – 7:28 PM

Chase Hughes @ChaseHughesNBCS

Bradley Beal is feeling it early tonight with 11 pts in 9 min on 5-7 FG. Sixers haven’t found a way to stay in front of him. – 7:27 PM
