Four days ago, Beal played 30 minutes for the Wizards. He scored 10 points and had four assists in a win over the Milwaukee Bucks.
The ankle injury came during a Wizards practice on Monday. What looked like a bad injury at first turned out to be just a tweak that resulted in no missed games. He was held out of practice on Tuesday as a precaution.
It is unclear how many minutes Beal is expected to play against the Heat. After Wednesday's game, Beal and the Wizards will travel to San Antonio to play the Spurs.
