Bradley Beal relives his game-winning shot

NEW YORK -- Bradley Beal didn't practice Tuesday, but was declared OK after logging 30 minutes in a Monday's comeback victory.

Beal had missed nine games with a stress reaction in his lower right leg before scoring 21, 14 in the fourth quarter to knock off the Knicks. 

There was no pain Tuesday and team athletic trainers determined there weren't any recurrences after Beal's unexpectedly  heavy workload. 

His minutes will be limited in the next few games.

"We're minimizing. Taking it easy and see where he's at after a little while," coach Randy Wittman said after Tuesday's practice.

Nene (right foot) practiced and could play Wednesday vs. the Brooklyn Nets (CSN, 7:30).

Glen Rice, who didn't play Monday but injured his right shooting wrist, was held out. Instead he went to the doctor for evaluation. 

Rice apparently incurred the injury while celebrating Monday's win when he was shoved.
