Michael Beasley F MIA 11 Hrs

Michael Beasley sprained his right ankle and will not return to Wednesday's game vs. the Sixers.

It's too bad because he was getting some run tonight, finishing with eight points, one board, two blocks and one turnover. Beasley's minutes figure to drop back down in the playoffs, but the team got a heck of a lot more than they bargained for from him this season.

Michael Beasley scored 18 points in Monday's blowout 114-93 loss to the Wizards, adding five boards, three assists, one steal, one block and two turnovers in 27 minutes.

The Heat sat Chris Bosh and LeBron James tonight to allow Beasley to put up a nice line in his home town. He'll likely be looking at another chance on Wednesday vs. the Sixers with the Heat locked into the two spot in the Eastern Conference. Considering how he likes to dominate the ball, Beasley could be looking at a big night should Miami sit their guys out again.

Michael Beasley is likely to start at SF on Monday, with LeBron James (rest) doubtful to play.

Beasley has played exactly one minute in Miami's past five games, but there's a good chance he'll get aired out vs. the Wizards. In two previous starts this season, Beasley averaged 12.0 points, 5.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 27 minutes per contest.

Michael Beasley didn't get off the bench on Wednesday, receiving a DNP-CD.

He's had a couple decent lines recently but is only worth a look on nights when LeBron James isn't playing.

Michael Beasley scored 16 points off the bench against the Pelicans on Saturday with three boards and one turnover.

Beasley came out hot in the second quarter which was the main reason why he was able to do so much damage in 18 minutes. Obviously Dwyane Wade (rest) not playing was a factor here, so fantasy owners can just keep this in mind the next time Wade sits.

Michael Beasley started in place of LeBron James ('back') and hit 5-of-11 shots for 12 points, four rebounds, four assists, a steal and four turnovers.

If you spot started him in a daily league he probably came through, but he won't be relevant again until LeBron gets another day of rest.

Michael Beasley will start against the Celtics on Wednesday.

He will start next to Mario Chalmers, Udonis Haslem, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade. Beasley is a very interesting plug-and-play guy tonight and could have a nice effort. Coach Erik Spoelstra will keep his second unit together tonight.

Michael Beasley scored just four points on 2-of-6 shooting with one rebound, one assist, one steal and one block in 15 minutes off the bench on Monday.

The steal and block make this line a lot better than the reality of Beasley's situation suggests, as he's now back into his limited role that crushes any fantasy value he accumulated last week. Still, when we get into the last few weeks he'll be a guy to keep close tabs on with the Heat likely to rest their guys.

Michael Beasley hit 5-of-10 shots and a 3-pointer for 11 points, six rebounds, a steal and a block in Thursday's loss to the Spurs.

Beasley had a season-high 24 on Tuesday and while he was struggling prior to that one, he's heating up. Keep an eye on him if you're in a deep league, but the reality is that he could disappear as soon as LeBron James gets hot again.

Michael Beasley scored a season-high 24 points against the Rockets on Tuesday with four boards, two assists and four 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

He shot 9-of-13 from the field in his best game of the season. LeBron James said he was "proud" of Beasley tonight and coach Erik Spoelstra left the mercurial forward in the game down the stretch. It's tough to say that the Heat will give Beasley more minutes at power forward and not winning the game probably doesn't help his case, so he's not an add in most leagues unless you're dropping dead weight.
