Star shooting guard Bradley Beal of the Washington Wizards revealed on Wednesday that he is still undecided when it comes to taking part in the restart of the NBA season in August.

Beal, which has been recovering from some nagging injuries that limited him before the postponement of the season, said that both his small injuries as well as the danger and limitations of the Orlando restart have forced him to consider not playing.

“Listen, it’s not a walk in the park,” Beal said about the bubble in which players will have to live in Orlando. “That is where a lot of guys are concerned about. We can’t just leave. We can’t just order whatever food we want. We can’t just do activities in which we want to do. We can’t go to our teammate’s room.”

Beal, a two-time All-Star, has been putting up superstar caliber numbers this season for Washington. He has averaged 30.5 points, 6.2 assists, and 4.1 rebounds in 57 games this season.

The 3rd overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft has become the Wizards’ franchise cornerstone along with John Wall. Despite Beal’s excellence, however, the Wizards find themselves in 9th place in the Eastern Conference with a 24-40 record.

Beal is expected to make his decision about 2020 in the coming weeks.
