Beal’s trade to the Suns to join Kevin Durant and Devin Booker really shook the NBA’s core. However, it took a quarter of the season for the trio to really start gelling together. Beal dealt with back and ankle injuries that limited him to play only 8 games midway through December. Since then he has been a consistent face in the Suns’ starting lineup trying to decode their true dynamic.

His suppressed appearances also left him off the All-Star game. Beal won’t be a part of the Indiana All-Star showcase. After their win against the Milwaukee Bucks, he was asked about his plans, and rest isn’t on his schedule.

After a rigorous season, most NBA players embrace the weekend-long break they get from their always-busy calendars. They spend time with their families, go on vacations or just take the time to submerge in relaxation. When Beal was asked about his plans, he revealed his tenacious mindset. “Break is always necessary. I’ll continue to work on the break, that’s for sure,” he told the reporters.

The former Washington star vows to work despite having the weekend off. Only one thing could keep him off the court, and that’s a decision to have surgery. Beal is planning to have naval cavity surgery soon. He describes his nose as looking “like an S”. The procedure will require him to miss some time, preferably the weekend stretch.

When asked about the surgery, Bradley Beal said he will have a decision to make during the break given he will need a few days to heal.

“Luckily, we got the All-Star break coming up, I’ll have to make a decision on whether I’m doing a little bit of a nose job or not. (And if not) I’ll wait until the offseason,” said Bradley Beal about his nose surgery according to Arizona Sports.
