Description: Heat forward Michael Beasley had to leave Wednesday's game against the Sixers after spraining his ankle. SOURCE: Heat on Twitter
Insight: Beasley notched eight points on 3-of-4 shooting before exiting. Consider him questionable for Miami's playoff opener against Charlotte.
 
12/23/2013 7:28:00 PM
Description: Miami forward Michael Beasley is active Monday for the first time since Dec. 5.
Insight: Beasley missed seven straight games due to a hamstring injury. He's picked up the scoring slack when Dwyane Wade has been out this season but he's unlikely to be leaned on in his first game back.
 
12/20/2013 11:49:00 AM
Description: Miami forward Michael Beasley missed Wednesday night against Indiana and is questionable for Friday's game against Sacramento.
Insight: He's missed six games in a row with a hamstring injury. He's a solid bench player for the Heat, but doesn't quite have the numbers for a fantasy starter (11.4 ppg, 4.0 rpg, 0.6 apg.
 
12/18/2013 2:52:00 PM
Description: Miami will be without forward Michael Beasley Wednesday night against Indiana. SOURCE: Shandel Richardson, South Florida Sun Sentinel
Insight: He's now missed six games in a row with a hamstring injury. The Heat really could have used him tonight with LeBron James struggling with ankle problems.
 
12/16/2013 11:56:00 AM
Description: Heat PF Michael Beasley is expected to miss the Monday night matchup with Utah.
Insight: Beasley injured his hamstring and has missed four consecutive games. He's averaging 11.4 ppg, 4.0 rpg off the Miami bench.
 
12/9/2013 11:10:00 AM
Description: Heat PF Michael Beasley is questionable for Tuesday's game against Indiana due to a strained left hamstring.
Insight: Beasley tweaked his hamstring in Thursday's loss at Chicago and missed the next two games. He's averaging 11.4 ppg, 4.0 rpg off the Miami bench.
 
12/7/2013 7:40:00 PM
Description: The Heat won't have Michael Beasley Saturday against the Timberwolves. SOURCE: Heat on Twitter
Insight: Beasley tweaked his hamstring in Thursday's loss at Chicago. He's had a resurgent season, averaging 11.4 ppg in just under 18 minutes per game. His 54.6 percent success rate from the field is easily a career-high.
 
11/20/2013 7:09:00 PM
Description: Heat forward Michael Beasley scored 14 points with seven rebounds in just 21 minutes of play Wednesday at Orlando.
Insight: After playing a total of four minutes over the first six games of the season, Beasley has played 17.5 minutes per game and averaged 11.7 points and 2.8 rebounds over the last six. He's still not a fantasy option, however.
 
9/12/2013 7:09:00 PM
Description: Michael Beasley is back with the team he started his career with, the Miami Heat.
Insight: When you have LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in your lineup, you can afford to gamble with the rest of your roster. Hey, it worked out with Birdman didn't it? Maybe Beasley will experience a similar renaissance now that he's in South Beach.
 
9/4/2013 11:58:00 AM
Description: The Suns waived former No. 2 pick Michael Beasley on Tuesday. SOURCE: NBA.com
Insight: Beasley's career has been derailed by erratic off-court behavior including multiple arrests. Despite his baggage, Beasley is sure to attract a handful of teams with his 14.1 ppg career scoring average.
 
8/9/2013 11:02:00 PM
Description: Michael Beasley's future in Phoenix could be in question after his latest marijuana arrest.
Insight: Phoenix talk show host John Gambadoro points out that the Suns can use the stretch provision on Beasley, which is basically the equivalent of a buyout. Beasley, who has now been arrested three times since entering the league in 2008 (two of those were marijuana-related), is owed $9 million over the next two seasons.
 
4/13/2013 11:08:00 AM
Description: Suns forward Michael Beasley will not rejoin the team Saturday against Minnesota as earlier thought. SOURCE: Paul Coro, Arizona Republic
Insight: Beasley is back in Phoenix with his newborn daughter. He's been exclusively coming off the bench since the All-Star break and his falling numbers show it. He's averaging just 9.0 ppg and 3.3 rpg in the last 24 games and has little fantasy value.
 
4/10/2013 8:29:00 PM
Description: Suns forward Michael Beasley will rejoin the team Saturday against Minnesota. SOURCE: Paul Coro, Arizona Republic
Insight: Beasley is back in Phoenix with his newborn daughter. He also missed Tuesday's game.
 
4/10/2013 11:45:00 AM
Description: Suns forward Michael Beasley missed Tuesday's game due to the birth of his child, but is probable for Wednesday's game against Dallas.
Insight: Beasley is averaging 11.3 points and 20 minutes over his last 16 games, but he isn't producing in Phoenix as he did in Miami or Minnesota.
 
4/9/2013 7:22:00 PM
Description: Suns forward Michael Beasley will miss Tuesday's game due to the birth of his child.
Insight: Beasley is averaging 11.3 points and 20 minutes over his last 16 games.
 
4/4/2013 10:03:00 AM
Description: Suns forward Michael Beasley was ejected from Wednesday night's loss to the Clippers after getting into it with Los Angeles big man Ryan Hollins.
Insight: That comes as no surprise given Beasley's reputation. He was just sticking up for his teammate Goran Dragic so we're guessing the league won't suspend him for his actions. With that said, Beasley hasn't been a consistent fantasy contributor this season (10.1 ppg, 3.8 rpg). He's only an option in extremely deep formats.
 
3/21/2013 10:15:00 AM
Description: Phoenix small forward Michael Beasley only logged eight minutes Wednesday in a defeat against Washington.
Insight: The benching had nothing to do with Beasley's behavior or attitude, which have both been issues in the past. He just wasn't playing particularly well (1-of-5 from the field). The fact of the matter is Beasley hasn't panned out since the Heat made him the No. 2 overall pick in the 2008 NBA Draft. He's already on his third team in five seasons and the closest he's come to fantasy relevance was in 2010-11 when he averaged 19.2 ppg and 5.6 rebounds per contest.
 
Hot1/31/2013 10:49:00 AM
Description: Suns forward Michael Beasley exploded for 27 points on 12-of-20 shooting with six boards and five steals in 34 minutes off the bench Wednesday night against the Lakers.
Insight: Suns interim coach Lindsay Hunter has put his faith in Beasley while former coach Alvin Gentry had none. Beasley is averaging 16.3 points, 5.9 rebounds, 1.1 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.5 blocks in 23 minutes over his last eight games. Hunter has gotten Beasley to shoot just 1.5 threes per game in that span. The forward took 2.7 over his first 25 games and only made 30.9 percent. Beasley's 34 minutes Wednesday were his most since Nov. 17.
 
1/29/2013 3:52:00 PM
Description: Suns interim coach Lindsay Hunter said Michael Beasley has "definitely" earned more minutes. SOURCE: Craig Grialou, ArizonaSports.com
Insight: Beasley is averaging 14.7 points and 5.9 rebounds with a .484 shooting percentage in 21 minutes per game over his last seven contests. He fell out of favor with former coach Alvin Gentry and only played seven minutes per game from Dec. 29 to Jan. 11 before an injury to Jared Dudley forced Gentry to use him again. Beasley is certainly an option for deeper-league owners, but realize that more minutes doesn't necessarily mean better production if Beasley shoots 36.8 percent like he did in his first 34 games.
 
1/27/2013 9:46:00 AM
Description: Suns forward Michael Beasley is averaging 15.2 points on 49.4 percent shooting with 6.2 rebounds over his last six games.
Insight: Beasley scored 25 points on 11-of-16 shooting Saturday against the Spurs. He's back to playing 20-plus minutes per game after being buried on the bench in mid-January.
