Beasley finished with four points (2-5 FG), four rebounds, three assists and one block across 20 minutes during Wednesday's 112-99 loss to the Magic.

EDGE Analysis

Despite drawing the start over the injured Kristaps Porzingis (elbow, ankle), Beasley played just 20 minutes and failed to make a significant impact. Doug McDermott (30 minutes), Lance Thomas (22 minutes) and Kyle O'Quinn (20 minutes) were all equal beneficiaries of Porzingis' absence, despite coming off the pine.

Beasley will start at power forward for Wednesday's game against the Magic, Stefan Bondy of New York Daily News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Kristaps Porzingis is dealing with both an elbow and ankle injury and will get the night off Wednesday. That leaves a huge gap in the frontcourt and allows Beasley to pick up the start in his place. While Beasley will get the call in the top unit, it will likely be a committee approach to fill Porzingis' minutes, with guys like Doug McDermott and Lance Thomas seeing a larger workload as well.

Beasley (ankle) recorded six points (2-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-4 FT), four rebounds, one assist, one steal and one turnover across 18 minutes during Saturday's 107-111 loss to the Pistons.

EDGE Analysis

Beasley was dealing with a sore ankle going into Saturday's contest, so it's certainly promising that he was able to take the court for 18 minutes. With Lance Thomas failing to get off the bench himself, Beasley saw a fairly solid workload, though the two will still likely battle for minutes behind Kristaps Porzingis at power forward moving forward. Beasley's ankle injury should no longer be a concern.

Beasley (ankle) will attempt to play in Saturday's game against the Pistons, Marc Berman of the New York Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Beasley suffered a foot injury in the opener against Oklahoma City on Thursday, but after taking it easy Friday he'll give it a go Saturday night. Considering Beasley's role is somewhat difficult gauge even when healthy, he's best avoided in daily contests given the current situation.

Beasley (ankle) won't return to Thursday's game against the Thunder, Marc Berman of the New York Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

The diagnosis is a left ankle sprain. But, on the plus side, his X-rays returned negative, so it seems doubtful he'll miss a large chunk of games. Regardless, he should tentatively be considered questionable for Saturday's contest against the Pistons.

Beasley (ankle) received X-rays in the locker room, which returned negative, and he is questionable to return to Thursday's game, Al Iannazzone of Newsday reports.

EDGE Analysis

While questionable to return Thursday, his negative X-rays point to his injury being minor. So, even if he doesn't step back onto the floor Thursday, it seems doubtful he'll miss a large stretch of games.

Beasley left Monday's preseason game against the Rockets with a bruised elbow, however X-rays show there is no significant injury, Ian Begley of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Beasley was having himself another strong preseason showing, recording 17 points, four rebounds, three steals and two assists over 24 minutes before the injury forced his exit. While the X-rays didn't show any significant injury, it is worth noting that Beasley was in a sling after the game. The timetable on the injury is unknown at this time, meaning Beasley should be considered day-to-day until more information is provided.
