Beal has missed the past three games after the death of his grandmother. The Wizards (10-3) won all three to keep hold on the Eastern Conference’s best record and roll to their best start since 1974-75.

Beal, 28, finished second in the NBA in scoring last season (31.3 points) and is averaging 23.3 points, 4.5 rebounds and 4.6 assists on the season.

“I want to give a big shoutout to Bradley Beal,” guard/forward Deni Avdija said after the Wizards topped the Pelicans on Monday. “He was not with us because of personal reasons and when we get him back, he’s one of our best weapons.”

The Wizards’ next five games come against some recently familiar foes — at Charlotte and at Miami, before facing each of those same two opponents at home. They then travel to New Orleans.
