Michael Beasley finished Wednesday's game with two points on 1-of-5 shooting, two rebounds, one assist, one steal, and one block in 19 bench minutes.
Beasley dealt with a minor elbow injury last week but it was never considered serious. The Bucks are hoping that he can replace some of the scoring they lost when Khris Middleton went down, but a handful of points are basically all he brings to the fantasy table. Oct 27 - 12:03 AM

Michael Beasley (elbow) will not play on Wednesday.

It's unclear what's going on with Beasley's elbow, but there's no indication of it being serious. With him out, we'll get a longer look at Mirza Teletovic along with the other forwards.
Oct 19 - 6:46 PM

Michael Beasley went 1-of-8 from the field to finish Wednesday's loss to the Pacers with four points, one rebound and no other stats in 13 minutes of action.

Beasley's calling card is scoring, but through three preseason games he's a combined 4-of-20 from the field for Milwaukee. He should go undrafted outside of very deep leagues.
Oct 12 - 10:22 PM

Jason Kidd praised Michael Beasley for what he brings to the Bucks.

"He can score the ball," Kidd said. "He can play multiple positions. He helps us with talking, having a voice. He understands how to play the game. He's been on a journey that has taken him different places. I think that's a great story for him to share with our younger guys, to understand you could be in this league, out of this league. Hard work will only get you back in." Beasley added that he's loving it in Milwaukee, specifically citing the "atmosphere" around the team. Despite all of this, Beasley is not on the radar in standard fantasy formats.
Oct 8 - 4:48 PM

Michael Beasley played 18 minutes on Monday with 11 points, three rebounds, two steals, two turnovers and two 3-pointers.

The Bucks added him for depth to help offset the loss of Khris Middleton (hamstring) and he helped in the scoring department tonight. The problem is that Beasley doesn't fit well with most of the key rotation guys, so he's going to have to find a role in the second unit. There isn't enough upside to draft him in most leagues.
Oct 3 - 10:46 PM

Bucks GM John Hammond said he was in talks with the Rockets about Michael Beasley before Khris Middleton's (hamstring) injury.

"We were in discussions with Houston before Khris' injury, and we think he [Beasley] can bring a scoring mentality off our bench," Hammond said. The Bucks are expected to work the phones in order to find some additional help on the wings, but it's reasonable to think that Beasley will still have a role after averaging 12.8 points and 4.9 rebounds in 18.2 minutes per game for Houston last season. The Bucks need Mirza Teletovic's floor spacing now more than ever, so he's a better fantasy target than Beasley.
Sep 24 - 12:01 PM

The Rockets have traded Michael Beasley to the Bucks for Tyler Ennis.

The Bucks found out on Wednesday that Khris Middleton (hamstring) will be out for about six months, so Beasley could be looking at minutes in Milwaukee right away. Beasley was a nice surprise in Houston last season with averages of 12.8 points and 4.9 rebounds in 18.2 minutes per game, and he's only going to be on the books for $1.4 million before hitting free agency in 2017. The Bucks may not be done making moves, but we're still not excited about Beasley's fantasy outlook.
Sep 22 - 4:19 PM

The Rockets have guaranteed Michael Beasley's $1.4 million salary for the 2016-17 season.

He exceeded expectations in Houston last season, averaging 12.8 points and 4.9 boards in just 18.2 minutes per game, and he also shot an impressive 52.2 percent from the field. The Rockets moved on from Terrence Jones this summer, but the acquisition of Ryan Anderson hurts Beasley's outlook. If the Rockets re-sign Donatas Motiejunas, Beasley won't have much fantasy value next season.
Aug 1 - 9:11 AM

The Rockets have reportedly decided to retain Michael Beasley past his guaranteed date.

Beasley's contract will become guaranteed after August 1, and the Rockets have reportedly already made the decision to keep him on the books. Beasley will help backup Ryan Anderson, but he won't have much fantasy value at all while the team is healthy.
Jul 7 - 6:54 PM

The Rockets intend to keep Michael Beasley beyond his contract guarantee date of August 1, according to Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle.

Donatas Motiejunas, Josh Smith and Terrence Jones are all free agents, so the Rockets need depth at power forward after signing Ryan Anderson to a big money contract. B-Easy was surprisingly a per-minute monster off the bench after arriving in Houston during the 2015-16 season, but his role shouldn't be quite the same after the Rockets paid $20 million annually—over four years—to acquire Ryno's services.

Michael Beasley scored 17 points on 6-of-12 shooting on Sunday vs. the Warriors, adding three boards and one 3-pointer in 19 minutes.

This was his third game in a row with double-digit points, but he's still only getting minutes in the teens. It's hard to imagine his role growing because the Rockets are apparently comfortable with Donatas Motiejunas in the first unit, so Beasley won't see enough minutes to make a significant impact in fantasy.
Apr 24 - 6:37 PM

Michael Beasley scored two points with one rebound, one assist and one turnover in six minutes against the Warriors on Saturday.

He played all of his minutes in the first half. Beasley also played next to Josh Smith in this game, which occurred for just four minutes all regular season. Beasley not getting run in garbage is a little odd, so that hurts his value in DFS because it seems like there will be more garbage time in this series.
Apr 16 - 6:11 PM

Michael Beasley played only nine minutes off the bench vs. the Lakers, finishing a high-scoring victory with six points, three rebounds, one assist and one steal.

Beasley continues to fire at will when he's on the court, but playing time as been a real issue lately. He's averaging just 12.8 minutes in Houston's past four games and today he played less than Donatas Motiejunas (19 minutes), Clint Capela (15 minutes) and Josh Smith (19 minutes). Cut him, if you haven't already.
Apr 10 - 6:16 PM

Michael Beasley scored 15 points against the Mavs on Wednesday, adding three rebounds, one assist and one steal in 21 minutes.

He played at the five in the clutch at times during this tough loss. Beasley has been inconsistent over his last five, averaging 13.4 points, 6.6 boards, 1.4 assists, 0.4 steals and 0.2 blocks. He's better suited in points leagues while his price has gone up almost too much in DFS.
Apr 7 - 12:13 AM

Michael Beasley scored 20 points against the Bulls on Thursday, adding 11 rebounds, two assists and two turnovers.

He made a handful of mistakes on defense, which may have partially cost the Rockets in a bad loss tonight. Beasley is at his best when he's not next to James Harden and the tandem's defense was costly, so coach J.B. Bickerstaff might want to stagger those two as much as possible. He's better suited for points leagues and DFS, but is on the radar in standard leagues for those hunting scoring.
