|May return next week|
Beal (back) went through a workout ahead of Tuesday's In-Season Tournament game, and there's optimism the shooting guard could return to the Suns' starting lineup next week, Shams Charania of The Athletic reported on FanDuel TV.
The Scoop: In his report Tuesday, Charania mentioned that Beal continues to make progress, and if that trend continues over the next 7-to-10 days, he'll be on track to suit up for the first time since Nov. 12. Beal missed the first seven games of the season due to back spasms and returned for a three-game stretch in mid-November before being shut down again. He missed his 11th straight game Tuesday and will likely be sidelined for at least a few more contests, but Beal's return to action appears to be on the horizon. In the meantime, Eric Gordon and Grayson Allen should continue playing prominent roles.
