Michael Beasley scored 14 points with eight rebounds, two assists, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 24 minutes against the Rockets on Wednesday.
Revenge game? The Bucks went with a lot of small-ball lineups to help get Beasley over 20 minutes for the fourth time in his last five. In that span, Beasley averaged 14.2 points, 5.8 boards, 2.2 assists, 1.2 blocks, 1.0 steals and 0.6 treys in 24.6 minutes per game. That's not really sustainable, but he's making a case to be picked up in 16-team leagues. Although, a potential Khris Middleton (hamstring) return would hurt him. Jan 18 - 11:09 PM

Michael Beasley scored 11 points on 5-of-5 shooting with seven rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 21 minutes vs. the Heat on Friday.

Of course he played well in a revenge game. Beasley has been stepping up for the Bucks and had a big 28-point game vs. the Spurs on Tuesday with Giannis Antetokounmpo battling an illness, but his upside is going to be capped when the Greek Freak is healthy like he was tonight. He's a deep-league asset at best despite some strong play this week.
Jan 13 - 11:23 PM

Michael Beasley stepped up for the Bucks in a 109-107 win over the Spurs on Tuesday, scoring 28 points on 11-of-18 shooting.

Beasley scored 20 of his points after the break to give the Bucks their first win over the Spurs since 2008. Giannis Antetokounmpo only played nine minutes because of an illness, so Beasley played 34 minutes with five rebounds, four assists, two steals, three blocks and one triple in one of the lines of the night. As impressive as this was, Giannis has a few days to heal up for Friday's game vs. the Heat, so it's tough to pick Beasley up in standard leagues.
Jan 10 - 11:03 PM

Michael Beasley (bruised shin) participated in morning shootaround and will be available for Tuesday's game vs. the Spurs.

Beasley bruised his shin in Sunday's loss to the Wizards, but still managed to score 18 points in 16 minutes. With Giannis Antetokounmpo (illness) a game-time decision for Tuesday night, Beasley could be in line for a significant uptick minutes.
Jan 10 - 12:46 PM

Michael Beasley (shin) is probable to play Tuesday vs. the Spurs.

He'll log limited minutes off the bench, and is not a viable target in most settings.
Jan 9 - 4:48 PM

Michael Beasley exited Sunday's game with a left shin contusion and did not return, ending his evening with 18 points, one rebound, one steal, one 3-pointer and one turnover in 16 minutes.

Beasley was deemed questionable to return but never got back on the court following the injury, so we'll have to consider him questionable for Tuesday's game in San Antonio. If Giannis Antetokounmpo (illness) is also forced to the sidelines on Tuesday, Mirza Teletovic and Greg Monroe will likely flirt with minutes in the 30s with Monroe offering the most upside.

Michael Beasley returned from a foot injury and hit 4-of-11 shots for eight points, four rebounds, one assist and two steals in 18 minutes on Monday.

He'd missed five straight games with the injury, so the Bucks were glad to have him back. However, he's a long way off from having fantasy value in most formats.

Updating a previous item, Michael Beasley (foot) is expected to be available on Monday.

Beasley came in with a probable designation, so no big surprise here. Whether or not he plays only Jason Kidd truly knows, but Super Cool Beas should be ready if called upon.

Michael Beasley (foot) is probable for Monday's game vs. the Wizards.

He was "available" to play Friday, but he ended up being a late scratch. Since he plays for the Bucks, we can't confidently say he will return to action tonight, but it's worth noting that Mirza Teletovic (illness) is questionable.
Mon, Dec 26, 2016 12:46:00 PM

Michael Beasley (foot) was scratched for Friday's game.

The Bucks have been a lot better this year with injuries, but here we are. Mirza Teletovic should get a little added burn tonight.
Fri, Dec 23, 2016 08:15:00 PM

Michael Beasley (foot) is available to play against the Wizards.

He sounds like he'll get playing time, but it likely won't be more than minutes in the teens. Beasley isn't a fantasy option while Mirza Teletovic takes a hit.
Fri, Dec 23, 2016 07:03:00 PM

Michael Beasley (foot) is still listed as TBD for Friday's game vs. the Wizards.

Beasley has missed four straight games for the Bucks due to a nagging foot sprain. In addition to missing games, Beas has struggled when he's been healthy enough to play. Beasley has scored more than eight points in only two games this month. Mirza Teletovic has had some decent games with Beasley sidelined, averaging 11.2 points, 4.7 rebounds and 2.0 3-pointers over the Bucks last six games.
Fri, Dec 23, 2016 11:42:00 AM

Michael Beasley (foot) will not play against the Cavs on Wednesday night.

He'll miss his fourth game with a linger mid-foot injury. Beasley missing time has opened up minutes for Mirza Teletovic, who should be busy taking 3-pointers in Cleveland. Beasley doesn't have much value while Mirza is a possible stream for treys.
Wed, Dec 21, 2016 06:05:00 PM

Michael Beasley (foot) will not suit up for Tuesday's game against the Cavs.

This will mark Beasley's third straight game on the sidelines, which will present Mirza Teletovic with some increased opportunity for minutes. Teletovic, however, isn't much more than a 3-point streamer in deep leagues, and he's not a great option tonight with a tough matchup vs. the Cavs.
Tue, Dec 20, 2016 06:33:00 PM

Michael Beasley (foot) went through some portions of Monday's practice, and he'll be re-evaluated on Tuesday to see if he can suit up against the Cavs.

Beasley appears to be headed for a game-time call, but his playing status is more or less irrelevant in fantasy hoops. Mirza Teletovic could see some increased minutes if Beasley is out, but he's not much more than a 3-point streamer in deep leagues.
