After one season at the University of Florida, Beal was selected with the third overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft by the Wizards. The 19-year-old rookie joined John Wall to form one of the most dynamic backcourts in the NBA. Beal made his NBA debut on opening night (Oct. 30), posting eight points, three rebounds and three assists in a loss at Cleveland. Despite a slow start to the season, Beal was named Eastern Conference Rookie of the Month for December after averaging 13.4 points, 3.9 rebounds and 3.4 assists over 12 contests. On Jan. 16, the shooting guard posted 26 points and six assists during a loss at Sacramento. Beal appeared in 41 of Washington's first 43 games until he suffered a wrist injury on Jan. 23 in a loss at Utah. Beal tried to play through the injury but ultimately missed five games. He returned Feb. 8 and played in 10 straight contests, a run which included a 28-point effort in a Feb. 11 win at Milwaukee and a 29-point performance during a March 1 loss at New York. An early March ankle injury then cost Beal 19 of the last 24 games. He concluded the season with per-game averages of 13.9 points, 3.8 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.6 three-pointers, and as a result, he was named to the 2013 All-Rookie First Team.2013
After an injury-riddled rookie season, Beal started 73 games for the Wizards in 2013-14. He delivered improved per-game averages in terms of points (17.1), assists (3.7), steals (1.0) and three-pointers (1.9). On Nov. 10, Beal scored a career-high 34 points and added six boards in a road loss to the Thunder. Beal started Washington's first 13 games, but on Nov. 25, it was announced that he'd aggravated the right-leg injury that forced him to miss the last couple weeks of the 2012-13 season. Fortunately, Beal only missed nine games, returning on Dec. 16 to post 21 points and seven boards in a win at New York. Once in November and twice in January, Beal dealt a career-high eight assists. That included his Jan. 20 performance when he generated 22 points, nine rebounds and eight assists in a home win over Philadelphia. On Feb. 11, Beal scored a career-high 37 points in a loss at Memphis. The Wizards finished with a 44-38 record and beat the Bulls in the first round of the playoffs but lost in Round 2 to the Pacers.

The St. Louis native returned Feb. 28 and played in 21 of Washington's last 23 regular-season contests. He ended the year with an accuracy mark of 40.9 percent from three-point land, which ranked ninth in the NBA.

And yet, despite the injuries, Beal had the best shooting season of his young career. The prolific guard shot a career-best 44.9 percent from the field despite attempting 4.9 threes per game. The improved shooting led to Beal averaging a career-high 17.4 points. The St. Louis native started Washington's first six games, but during the Nov. 7 loss at Atlanta, Beal injured his left shoulder, forcing him to miss three straight contests. On Dec. 4, Beal scored a season-high 34 points to go with eight rebounds and five assists during a home win over the Suns. Then, he was held out of a Dec. 11 game at New Orleans due to right leg soreness and ultimately rested for 18 of the team's next 23 games. Beal then came off the bench for most of the following 19 games and averaged 17.1 points per contest over that span. The injuries woes would soon continue during a March 7 loss to Indiana, as Beal injured his pelvis and missed four of the following six games. Beal returned March 19 but sat out the last two games of the season. Washington finished with a 41-41 record and missed the playoffs.2016
