Michael Beasley played nine minutes against the Thunder on Thursday with five points, two rebounds, two assists, one steal and two turnovers.
This wasn't a great line for fantasy, but Beasley pulled a Beasley by checking in with the wrong shorts. He had to go back to the locker room to change for some comic relief today (video in link below). It's great to see him back on the court, but he won't have much fantasy value. Jan 18 - 12:24 AM

Michael Beasley (right hand) came off the Lakers' bench on Sunday for eight points, one rebound and one steal in seven minutes, making 3-of-7 FGs and 2-of-3 FTs.

X-rays were negative after Beasley got hurt on Friday, and he wasn't even on the Lakers' official injury report for this game. The veteran has been a welcome surprise as an offensive weapon off the bench, averaging 15.0 points with nearly 60% shooting in his previous four games. Unfortunately, his fantasy value is undermined from a few directions -- unsustainable efficiency and the eventual return of LeBron James.

Michael Beasley (hand) was a "full go" during Saturday's practice and he'll be ready to play vs. the Cavs on Sunday.

Beasley has been surging lately and he makes sense if you're streaming for points in deep leagues, or searching for a punt-forward in DFS leagues.

X-rays on Michael Beasley’s right hand were negative on Friday night.

He did not play the final for minutes of garbage time, so this hand issue explains that. Beasley was playing well with 17 points, including seven of those in the fourth. Beasley will likely need garbage time to hold value in most leagues because he needs a lot of usage overall, so he's more of a points streamer or deep-league play.

Michael Beasley scored 17 points with three rebounds, one assist, two steals, one block and one turnover in 18 minutes against the Jazz on Friday.

Garbage time has helped him in on Wednesday with 12 minutes in the fourth, and he had seven points in the fourth today. JaVale McGee had a great quote on Beasley about him being a walking bucket after his 19-point Wednesday. "I call Michael Beasley a walking bucket. All he needs is some dishwater and a mop," McGee said. It's great to see him back on the court after a tough time for personal issues, but he's not the strongest fantasy add.

Michael Beasley finished Wednesday's game with 19 points on 9-of-13 shooting, four assists, two rebounds, two blocks and one 3-pointer.

Beasley played only 19 minutes and it should be noted that Detroit's defense was atrocious tonight, but he's making the most of his role as a second-unit playmaker. Lakers coach Luke Walton has praised his passing and he dropped a few nice dimes off the dribble tonight, rewarding the few owners who gambled on him as a streamer.
Jan 10 - 1:32 AM

Michael Beasley started the second half on Sunday, posting 11 points on 5-of-8 shooting, five boards, one assist, one steal and one block in 21 minutes.

Lakers coach Luke Walton wanted size on the court to battle the Wolves' big men, but his initial frontcourt of JaVale McGee and Ivica Zubac was run out of the gym. Beasley got the nod alongside JaVale after halftime, but this was doubly fluky -- it was matchup-based and due to the Lakers' injury problems. It's great to see Beasley playing well but he shouldn't be added anywhere.
Jan 6 - 7:10 PM

Michael Beasley (personal) is back with the team and is available to play Friday vs. the Knicks.

Beasley had been away from the team for the better part of a month due to a family illness and passing. Coach Luke Walton said that Beasley might see some time on Friday night if Kyle Kuzma (back) is ruled out.

Michael Beasley (personal) will not play on Tuesday in Brooklyn.

Michael Beasley (personal) will not play Friday vs. the Grizzlies.

Beasley has been excused from the team to tend to his family health matter. No fantasy impact here, as he was not a regular part of the rotation.
Sat, Dec 8, 2018 02:24:00 PM

Michael Beasley said he's not concerned about his role on the Lakers.

"I stayed engaged the same way you [in the media] stayed engaged as a fan," Beasley said. "I enjoy the game. I enjoy my teammates. God has granted me serenity a long time ago." Coach Luke Walton praised Beasley for his professionalism and added that everyone on the team will have a chance to contribute this season. He's well off the fantasy radar and his 14-point game on Sunday was a result of garbage time.
