Bradley Beal could make his Phoenix Suns debut on November 8 against the Chicago Bulls, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium.

Beal, who is dealing with a back injury, has been upgraded to questionable by the Suns for the Bulls game.

Beal hasn’t been able to stay healthy over the past few seasons. After playing in 82 games in 2017-18 and 2018-19, Beal played in only 207 games from 2019-20 to 2022-23.

NBA NEWS & RUMORS: Bradley Beal, Phoenix Suns Updates

Beal, who waived his no-trade clause with the Washington Wizards to get traded to the Suns, averaged 23.2 points, 3.9 rebounds and 5.4 assists last season in 50 games while shooting 50.6% from the field, 36.5% from beyond the arc and 84.2% from the free-throw line.

The Florida product waived his no-trade clause to land with the Suns after the Miami Heat told him they couldn’t acquire him.

“I’m like, ‘OK, what’s Miami doing? Dragging feet.’ And eventually it came to a point to where Miami said they just can’t do it,” Beal wrote in a diary for Andscape. “But it was an eye-opener for sure. And that’s why I said I went into everything kind of open-minded and with an open slate. And out of nowhere here comes a dark horse in Phoenix and their aggressiveness pushed me over the top.”
