WASHINGTON — Washington Wizards guard sustained a broken nose and a concussion after getting hit in the face by Boston Celtics forward and will miss Tuesday night's game at the Toronto Raptors.

The team listed Beal as day-to-day.

Beal took a forearm to the face from Smart midway through the second quarter of Boston's 116-91 victory Monday and left the game. He did not return.

In accordance with the NBA's concussion policy, Beal will begin the mandatory return to participation exertion protocol and be cleared to play once he's symptom free during each step of the process.

The 22-year-old is averaging 18.5 points a game this season.
