WASHINGTON -- Bradley Beal is expected to miss his fifth straight game for Washington Wizards on Wednesday night against the Bucks.

Wizards coach Randy Wittman says Beal's sprained left ankle hasn't healed enough. Garrett Temple has started the last two games in place of Beal. The No. 3 pick in the 2012 NBA draft, Beal is averaging 14.2 points this season.

Luc Mbah a Moute (turf toe) didn't travel with the Bucks. Mbah a Moute, who averages 7.5 points and 4.8 rebounds in 24.4 minutes per game, also missed Milwaukee's game Tuesday against Dallas.

A.J. Price (hamstring, groin) is also expected to miss the game. Trevor Ariza (knee) is a game-time decision.
