Michael Beasley scored a season-high 34 points during a 105-101 win against the 76ers on Wednesday, adding 11 boards, eight assists, two steals and two blocks in 48 minutes.
The Heat played four guys the entire game tonight. Amazingly, that feat has been accomplished before in 2010 when the Warriors played Monta Ellis, Stephen Curry, Anthony Tolliver and Reggie Williams 48 minutes in regulation. So Michael Beasley and Stephen Curry do have something in common after all. Apr 15 - 11:30 PM

Date:

The Heat will start their 31st different lineup of the season on Wednesday with Tyler Johnson, Zoran Dragic, James Ennis, Henry Walker and Michael Beasley.

This is a super-small lineup which the Heat are playing out of necessity, as nearly all of their veterans are taking the night off with the playoffs out of reach. It's hard to trust any of Miami's second-stringers tonight, though they're all likely to earn big minutes by default. The 31 different starting lineups set a new franchise record, due largely to the barrage of injuries Miami faced this season.
Apr 15 - 7:50 PM

Michael Beasley scored 13 points on 5-of-8 from the field against the Bulls on Thursday, adding two rebounds, one assist, one block and three 3-pointers.

He was on fire in the second quarter and did a fun celebration following a corner three. Unfortunately, Beasley's super cool magic disappeared at halftime and he couldn't get anything going after the break. If the Heat are going to miss some of their key players like Dwyane Wade, Beasley's usage rate should see a slight rise. He's not an option right now, but keep an eye on him.
Apr 9 - 10:48 PM

Michael Beasley (knee) will play Thursday vs. the Bulls.

Beasley missed Miami's last game, but he'll be back in action tonight. However, with season averages of just 8.0 points and 3.6 rebounds on 42.6 percent shooting from the field, Beasley isn't worth owning in most leagues.
Apr 9 - 6:28 PM

Michael Beasley (knee) is questionable to play against the Bulls on Thursday.

He did not play on Tuesday and has been out since Sunday. With Beasley out, Udonis Haslem and James Ennis picked up most of the minutes at the forward spots with Luol Deng. Beasley can be dropped in just about all leagues while Ennis and UD are worth looks for owners looking to stream Thursday.
Apr 8 - 2:38 PM

Michael Beasley (knee) will not play Tuesday vs. the Hornets.

Beasley's minutes will likely be split up between James Ennis and Henry Walker, and Ennis is worth a look as a low-end streamer in deep leagues. Beasley isn't worth owning in any leagues.
Apr 7 - 6:01 PM

Michael Beasley (knee) has been downgraded to doubtful to face the Hornets on Tuesday.

He left Sunday's game due to a hyperextended knee and the Heat still haven't shared any specific diagnosis. Beasley may have been looking at some minutes in the 16-24 range with Luol Deng hurt, but now they'll likely go to James Ennis and Henry Walker. Ennis is the preferred grab in deeper leagues.
Apr 6 - 5:32 PM

Michael Beasley (knee) is being listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Hornets.

This doesn't offer much clarity after Beasley left Sunday's game with the knee injury. If Beasley is out, James Ennis and Henry Walker could be looking at heavy minutes on the wing with Luol Deng (knee) questionable, as well.
Apr 6 - 2:05 PM

Michael Beasley left Sunday's game vs. the Pacers due to a hyperextended left knee and he will not be able to return.

Beasley tried to keep playing through the ailment, but he was obviously in a ton of pain and it certainly looks like he could miss some time. The Heat are already very shorthanded, and the last thing they need is another injury. Beasley will have an MRI on Monday, so we will update his status once we know the results. James Ennis' role off the bench should be solidified following this news.
Apr 5 - 8:18 PM

Michael Beasley played with a sore elbow on Tuesday, scoring six points with two rebounds, two turnovers and one technical foul in 18 minutes of action.

The Heat have started 30 different lineups this season, tying a franchise record. It's the result of a deluge of injuries that has Miami clinging to the No. 7 seed in the East, which is still impressive considering they're playing without Chris Bosh and Josh McRoberts while dealing with myriad injuries up and down the roster. Beasley made a few bone-headed plays tonight and he's failed to sustain standard-league value despite an increased role over the past few weeks.
Mar 31 - 11:12 PM

Updating a previous report, Michael Beasley (elbow) said that he's good to go for Tuesday's game vs. the Spurs.

Beasley will have the opportunity to log extended minutes tonight with Udonis Haslem (flu) out. That being said, he really doesn't do a lot aside from score and rebound, and he's a liability on defense which often results in Erik Spoelstra sending him to the bench. He's averaging just 8.5 points and 3.9 per game through the month of March, so owners in standard leagues can probably do better.
Mar 31 - 6:58 PM

Michael Beasley (elbow) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's game vs. San Antonio.

Beasley will warm up with the intention of playing, and the Heat could sure use him in the lineup with Udonis Haslem (flu) out, and both Chris Andersen (calf, shoulder) and Hassan Whiteside (hand) headed for a game-time call as well. Beasley doesn't offer a lot of upside, so he's not a great guy to target in most leagues despite the potential increased opportunity he'll see tonight. Although it could be hilarious watching him try to defend Tim Duncan.

Michael Beasley (elbow) is questionable to play against the Spurs on Tuesday night.

He suffered a stinger on Sunday and could only play seven minutes. If he's out, there should be more minutes going to Bill Walker and Udonis Haslem. Beasley doesn't have a high enough upside to keep on most fantasy rosters right now.
Mar 30 - 4:56 PM

Michael Beasley suffered a stinger in his elbow during Sunday's game vs. the Pistons, and he was unable to return after just seven minutes of action.

Beasley's elbow flared up and he didn't have any mobility in his arm after the game, but the Heat didn't seem to be overly concerned and head coach Erik Spoelstra is hopeful that he will play vs. the Spurs on Tuesday. Beasley isn't a great option in fantasy leagues and hasn't been getting a lot of minutes even with the Heat dealing with a lot of injuries, so owners in most leagues should probably leave him on the wire.
Mar 29 - 9:04 PM

Michael Beasley is questionable to return on Sunday due to a bruised elbow.

The Heat are coming apart at the seams, beginning the night extremely short-handed before losing both Beasley and Luol Deng (knee) on Sunday. If Beasley misses any time, James Ennis and Henry Walker will be thrust into bigger roles out of necessity.
